Charles Lindbergh captured the imagination of a nation with his cross-Atlantic flight in 1927, and as a result airplane imagery was a common sight in the late 20s and early 30s; imagery that could even be found on a guitar!
Built for Sears under the Supertone name, Harmony also marketed a near-identical model in their own line as the Roy Smeck Grand Concert. Small and stylish with its airplane bridge, mahogany back and sides and a red spruce top, it is a great blues box with percussive trebles, woody mids and an active bass response. It has that elusive open-voiced, feather-light, ladder-braced voice.
The instrument is crack free and plays extremely well thanks to a pro neck set and fingerboard replacement. The new board is ebony, and bound in the original's style with the original pearl inlays reused. Excellent fretwork, new bone nut and saddle, and ebony pins. Beautifully set-up, the guitar plays perfectly with low action.
Indian rosewood bridge and headstock overlay, mahogany neck with comfortable V carve, 1-13/16" nut, 24" scale.
With newer deluxe hard shell case
