1960s Harmony 0-size, 12-fret in ladder braced solid birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 3/8” string spacing, great all-around player and a true “Black Beauty”
The mid-century Harmony 0-size 12-frets are hard to beat when it comes to vintage American made acoustics at a fair price. All-solid birch with ladder bracing offers a punch and projection that difficult to describe given the tone wood involved. It’s responsive to a light touch yet not uncomfortable with a little digging’ in now and then. Short scale length makes it real easy to fret and the string spacing at the bridge is super generous for the fingerstyle player.
SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck with slotted headstock, ladder-braced solid birch top, birch sides and solid birch back in black lacquer finish, original poplar neck with steel neck reinforcement added, original tuning machines, “C” neck profile, new radius’d rosewood fretboard with new frets, MOP markers, new rosewood bridge, bone nut and saddle, Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 3/8“, Scale length: 24”, Upper bout: 9 5/8“, Lower Bout: 13 5/8”, Body length: 17 3/4”, Widest body depth: 3 5/8”, Overall length: 36 1/4”, Neck thickness at 1st fret: 15/16”, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 15/16”, Action: 1/8”, string gauge setup: D’addario EJ26 custom light gauge in standard tuning.
