Introduced in 1958, the thinline Rocket was Harmony’s entry into the Space Race, a sleek, streamlined instrument designed to evoke images of NASA’s pioneering ventures into the Great Beyond. Except for a few very minor dings and evidence of a filled strap button on the bottom bout (see photo), this is one of the most pristine and best-sounding Rockets we’ve ever come across. With its three DeArmond pickups, six knobs and four-way selector on the lower bout, the guitar is capable of producing everything from nasal, surprisingly Strat-like flutter to milkshake-thick crunch. All original, save reproduction pickguard (original cracked and broken guard in case). Comes with the original blue-lined grey chipboard case, which suffers from a broken handle. In all seriousness, this beauty looks like it was safely stowed away in a bomb shelter during the early days of the space race and kept there until we brought it back into the light of day for the benefit of you, our loyal customers. Actually, that would make a good screenplay. Hollywood, are you listening? The date stamp on this guitar is smudged beyond recognition, but we are confident that this guitar dates from the mid-1960s. SOLD!
