For your consideration a 1970 Harmony H169 Buck Owens American in Red, White and Blue! Whether you remember this guitar from “Hee-Haw” or in the hands of Pat Smear (Nirvana’s Upglugged), iconic defiantly describes this model! As cool as these guitars look, they sound incredible too — it’s not just hype! Big open sound from this one and an awesome player with a wide neck. This one is in great shape overall with no major repairs and beautifully finish checking all over!

This Buck Owens American guitar is the real deal. Made by Harmony in 1970, so it just turning 50 years old! It has many more decades of life to live and it’s just looking for a musical partner to share the experience. Take it home and you’ll be pickin’ and grinnin’ for sure. Would make for a killer rhythm guitar in the studio or an amazing stage guitar!
