1930’s Harmony Round Hole Archtop

Here’s a vintage 1930’s Harmony Round Hole Archtop Guitar. This is a really nice one. I’ve played a number of these over the years and this is at the top of the list. It has recently had a professional neck re-set and complete set up and plays like butter with amazingly low action the whole way up the neck. This is not usually the case with these. The sound is perfect for blues or fingerpicking styles and it’s also a perfect guitar to just strum on the couch. It does have some light marks and scratches that you would expect from a 75-80 year old guitar. One strip of tuners was replaced before I got the guitar but the original strip, with broken button, is included. The replacements have one slightly bent shaft but work great so I didn’t bother to fix the original. There is some light scuffing to the “binding” of the guitar as seen in the photos. Also, when the neck was re-set the original bridge, which had been planed down over the years to keep the action low, had to be shimmed up to make it tall enough to work with the now correct neck angle. You can see this is the second to last photo. I figure it was better to keep and repair the original bridge than replace it with something new. All work was professionally done. Original bar frets show next to no wear. The lower bout measures 14″ across and the scale length is 25″. You basically never see these guitars in this kind of condition. A killer player that needs no work.
