Image Gallery

Introduced in 1958, the thinline Rocket represented Harmony’s entry into the Space Race, a sleek, streamlined instrument designed and named so as to evoke images of mankind’s pioneering ventures into the cosmos. Except for a few very minor body dings and significant wear on the top and back of the headstock (see photo), this is a clean, great-sounding example. With its three DeArmond pickups, six knobs and four-way selector on the lower bout, the guitar is capable of producing everything from reedy, flute-like tones to milkshake-thick crunch. All original, save reproduction pickguard and a replaced bottom strap button. Comes with the original blue-lined grey chipboard case, which is structurally sound but shows its age. The usual date stamp inside this guitar is smudged beyond recognition, but all design details point to a mid-1960s blastoff date. SOLD!
