1960 Harmony 0-size 12-fret in ladder-braced solid birch all around, 1 3/4" nut, 2 1/4" string spacing, refreshingly melodic with nice sustain
Made in the Chicago factory in 1960, this Harmony was built at the dawn of the folk music era. Simple in appearance but with aged woods delivering a wonderful tone. Rebuild included updated top bracing, neckset with new rosewood bridge and compensated bone saddle.
SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck, ladder-braced birch top, sides and back, slotted headstock, original tuning machines, steel reinforced poplar neck with “C” neck profile, new radius'd fretboard with new frets and MOP markers, rosewood bridge, ebony pins, bone nut and saddle. Nut width: 1 3/4", String Spacing: 2 1/4", Scale length: 24", Upper bout: 9 5/8", Lower Bout: 13 3/8", Body length: 17 5/8", Widest body depth: 3 3/4", Overall length: 36 3/8" , Neck thickness at 1st fret: 7/8", Neck thickness at 5th fret: 7/8", Action: 3/32", string gauge setup: custom lights 52-11s.
CONDITION: All solid woods in great condition. Top finish has tiny scrapes and squiggles with bumps and bruises everywhere else in the body finish. Harmony decal is faintly visible on the headstock. Top bracing was updated to accommodate modern steel strings. Soundhole is large enough to accommodate most soundhole pickups. Work included neckset, bracing update, new fretboard/frets, bridge and a sweet setup.
SOUND: Very warm and resonant tone for a birch guitar. Would make for a nice bare-fingerstyle parlor or blues guitar.
