Vintage cool! The Harmony H-75 was one of the Chicago titan's finest thinline electrics. Shaped basically like an ES-335, they offer cool looks and tone at a great price. This 60s example is no exception. The hollow body is made of laminated figured maple for good looks and bright tone. The maple neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl block inlays and a cool engraved tortoise headstock overlay. A trio of Rowe Dearmond single coil pickups deliver big tone. Dearmond made the famous pickups as used in Gretsch and Guild guitars of the 50s and 60s. Waverly open back tuners, a floating rosewood bridge and a fancy German floating tailpiece round out the hardware. The finish is a gorgeous sunburst lacquer that really accentuates the wood. The entire guitar is set off by tortoise shell appointments and binding. A really cool looking instrument with tons of vintage vibe!

This Harmony plays nicely with cool vintage tone. The neck is straight and the frets are good. The pickups are bright and clear delivering cool rockabilly and roots rock sounds. A fun guitar to play. This is a nice used guitar. It shows average wear as you would expect from a 60s guitar. Normal checking, scratches, dents and dings. A few minor issues include 2 bent but functional tuner shafts, a loose pickguard and a few loose knobs. Nothing major but it may bother the pickiest of buyers. Comes in a chipboard case.

These are great guitars with cool looks and distinctive tones. Really sleepers on the vintage market as they are nicely made and very cool looking. Built in the USA, these are a downright steal when compared to Gibsons, Guilds, or Gretsches of the era. A really hip instrument.
