Vintage original circa 1954 Harmony Stratotone Newport. This is the very first version of the Stratotone Harmony made, and came out just when the first solidbody guitars were being produced a la the Telecaster.
These featured hub cap binding, a warm Dearmond pickup, and a big fat neck. These came in green and the more rare yellow finish as seen here.
Original pickup is warm and strong and full of vintage tone. A killer recording guitar. Has one original concentric knob, tone and volume.
Guitar is in generally excellent condition for it's age. Finish is worn in places as pictured. This is normal play wear.
It even comes with the original chipboard case, how that survived all these years we do not know, but here it 'tis!
