HARMONY H-56 Guitar Description

Since the neck is relatively straight, GUITAR plays well and buzzes almost inaudibly in some of higher frets. The neck is relatively straight, but could be adjusted for further straightening. This particular model of HARMONY is quite rare as it was shortly phased out by the manufacturers other arch tops that included Desmond pickups rather than p13s. Note: as a bonus I will provide HARMONY 1960s rocket pick guard, and soft-case at no added cost this rare archtop was made in 1957 ROY SMECK signature model falls under the same design Harmony's h56.

I am also selling other vintage HARMONY parts pickups from different arch tops such as rocket and gold-foiled that would fit this GUITAR well. The solid aged birch body gives a distinct and vintage characteristic to tone of GUITAR that sets it apart from other HARMONY models Guitars are seldom constructed using this wood, level craftsmanship displayed in finer details is worthy praise. The original pickup is a Gibson p13 soap bar that can be hard to come by, yet gold-foiled used provide distinct sound of most other HARMONY arch tops. I am unsure if the bridge is entirely original, but all other parts are original.

There exist few ROY SMECK h56 models that are in playable condition. Made in the states during late 50s this model is relatively good condition with several scratches and a crack left f-hole. The body of GUITAR is made from birch giving it a unique quality tonality. The GUITAR can be played as is or restored.

The electronics of GUITAR have been removed and what remains is a unique sounding well constructed vintage acoustic with distinct tonality. The midnight blue colour is especially desire able for collecting purposes as HARMONY released very few Guitars in this making it one of least common Electrics.
