Here we have a 1956 Harmony H-44 Stratotone! It’s in wonderful condition for a 60+ year-old guitar. Rare original black finish looks great with moderate playwear and a smattering of dings and scratches. Mostly original with the exception of a replaced output jack. Though it’s a small bodied guitar it does have a great big old neck (see specs below) which can rightly be called a baseball bat profile. Has great action and plays well all the way up the neck.
Basic Specs: 3-on-a-plate tuners. Comfortable 1 3/4 inch nut width.. Mahogany neck with a 25.5 inch scale length. Neck depth is .93 inches at the first fret and 1.2 inches at the twelfth fret. Rosewood fingerboard with 20 nickel frets and a 12 inch radius. Original “Hershey-Bar” pickup. Rosewood bridge with bone saddle. Stamped tailpiece. No truss rod, but with a neck this size who needs one? Single-ply white plastic pickguard.
This is a great guitar for the right person. Good sounding pickup. Comes with its original chip-board case.
