Vintage Harmony 0-size 12-fret in X- braced spruce/birch, 1 3/4" nut, 2 3/8" string spacing, nice sustain for fingerstyle
Mid-century Harmonys don’t disappoint and this example is no exception. Some favor flat picking, some favor strumming but this one favors bare fingerstyle play with its nice sustain and low action. Completely rebuilt for modern play, I’ve left plenty of saddle showing for adjustment in the future.
SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck with slotted headstock, X-braced solid spruce book matched top in natural finish, birch sides, red oak back in tobacco brown finish, poplar neck with steel neck reinforcement added, period tuning machines, “C” neck profile, ebony fretboard with unplayed frets, new ebony bridge, bone nut and saddle. Nut width: 1 3/4", String Spacing: 2 3/8", Scale length: 25", Upper bout: 9 3/4", Lower Bout: 13 3/4", Body length: 18 5/8", Widest body depth: 3 3/4", Overall length: 38 3/8", Neck thickness at 1st fret: 7/8", Neck thickness at 5th fret: 7/8", Action: 1/8", string gauge setup: D’addario EJ26 custom light gauge in standard tuning.
CONDITION: Solid rebuilt condition with upgraded bracing to accommodate modern steel strings. Other work included neckset, X-braced spruce top, bridge, setup. Repurposed woods may have underlying scrapes and scratches, bumps and bruises.
SOUND: Full and resonant with bare fingerstyle tone coming rather easily especially with generous string spacing at the saddle. Action can be adjusted to suit your playing style.
