1970 Harmony 0-size 12-fret in all-solid birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 3/16” string spacing, easy to fret and fun fingerstyle blues American made parlor guitar


The Harmony guitar factory was going strong during the folk music era of the late 60s in to the 1970s. Using all solid woods, short scale length and proven bracing design, the company’s legacy lives on 50 years later in today’s parlor guitar updated for modern string tension and playability. This example is extremely resonant, easy to fret and eye catching to boot. Good value for an American made parlor from this period.

SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck with slotted headstock, ladder-braced solid birch top in black lacquer finish, solid birch sides and back in red mahogany lacquer finish, period tuning machines, “C” neck profile, fixed steel neck reinforcement, radius’d ebony fretboard, ebony bridge, painted black binding top and back, unbleached bone nut and saddle with ebony pins. Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 3/16”, Scale length: 24”, Upper bout: 9 1/2”, Lower Bout: 13 3/8”, Body length: 17 3/4”, Widest body depth: 3 3/4”, Overall length: 36 1/4”, Neck thickness at 1st fret: 7/8“, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 7/8”, Action: 3/32”, string gauge setup: custom lights standard tuning.

CONDITION: Solid rebuilt condition with updated top bracing, ebony fretboard, ebony bridge and steel neck reinforcement. One 2” side hairline cleated. Please note that vintage surfaces will have underlying swirls, scrapes, scratches, bumps and bruises.

SOUND: Way more resonant than I expected with above average sustain for an all-birch parlor. Setup can be adjusted, within reason, to suit your playing style.
