A Japanese copy of a Harmony thinline from back in the era when Japanese guitars displayed an endearing degree of quirkiness, this toffee-sunburst beauty has a minor split on the top ply of its back, but is in excellent condition otherwise. Features a beautiful four-ply tortoiseshell pickguard and faux-tortoiseshell surrounds on the pickups, pickup selector switch and headstock overlay. Enclosed tuners still hold tuning well. Missing the tremolo arm, else all complete and original. When we bought this guitar and its accompanying Harmony H-303 amp (available separately), it was strung with a set of very old heavy-gauge strings. Even then, it sounded surprisingly vibrant, but in a subdued, midrange-heavy way. However, a new set of medium-gauge strings produced the results we were hoping for—the guitar now sounds surprisingly muscular in the lower register, while also providing plenty of high-end definition and sustain. Ships in well-worn but reasonably sturdy original chipboard case. In all, the ideal guitar for budget-minded bluesmen (and –women!) and garage rockers out there! Sold!
