c. 1942 Harmony “Roundup” 000-size 14-fret in X-bracing spruce over birch, 1 3/4” nut, super scarce and sassy vintage guitar
Harmony started producing the larger body “Roundup” models after 1939. This example has numbers inkstamped to the back that might link it to 1942 although I can’t be 100% certain. The look is classic, the feel is smooth and the tone is sassy and bold. Great example of a pre-war mid-size acoustic.
SPECS: 000-size body, 14-fret neck, X-braced solid spruce top, solid birch rim and back in original finish, slotted headstock with original stencil, cream binding top and soundhole, period tuning machines, steel reinforced poplar neck with a chunky “V” neck profile, rosewood fretboard with new frets and MOP markers, ebony pyramid bridge, bone pins, nut and saddle. Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 5/16”, Scale length: 25.5”, Upper bout: 11 1/4”, Lower Bout: 15 1/8”, Body length: 19“, Widest body depth: 3 3/4”, Overall length: 39 1/2” , Neck thickness at 1st fret: 15/16”, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 1”, Action: 1/8”, string gauge setup: 52-11s.
CONDITION: Solid guitar with prior back crack repairs visible only from the inside. Tons of scuffs to finish on sides and back from honest wear. Work included neckset with steel reinforcement added, top replacement with fresh bracing, new fretboard and frets, and repairs to seams, braces, bridgeplate, bridge, touchups and setup.
SOUND: LOUD! Great sound played barefingers and quite overwhelming with a flatpick. Can be setup for either style.
