HARMONY SOVEREIGN H1260 JUMBO FLAT TOP

I am sure you will love this guitar.    If you are not satisfied with playability, build or tone quality, you may return within five days for refund, and I will pay return shipping (please see fine print below).

This guitar was extensively repaired and rebuilt.   The following enhancements were completed:

  • Original top bracing removed, top underside sanded smooth and new Martin style forward shifted 100 degree X-bracing installed.
  • New rock maple reinforcing plate installed (if you want to convert to a pin bridge).
  • Neck reset
  • All new frets
  • Excellent new Grover 18:1 open back tunners.
  • All back braces rounded and sanded smooth for optimal tone
  • Back and sides re-finished and new back binding.
  • Top has original finish untouched.
  • New vintage bone saddle
  • New bone nut.
  • Side crack repaired
  • Additional side bracing installed (for enhanced tone)
  • Hot hide glue used on all wood parts
  • Neck is untouched.  Truss rod works correctly.
  • Brand new Gator Brand hard shell case.
  • Considering the starting price on the listing, THIS GUITAR SOUNDS FABULOUS.  It has  excellant crisp highs and nice crunchy lows.    This is not surprising considering the excellant materials (solid mahogany and close grained spruce) in the original build.   

    Buyers of used Harmonies not having new bracing installed are fooling themselves if they think a vintage Harmony is going to be playable or remain structurally sound.   The original ladder bracing system has failed if the guitar was strung to full pitch over the years.  Even a new-old stock guitar feels like playing a rubber band.   Ladder bracing is just not structurally reliable.  Therefore, all vintage Harmony guitars will have undesirable high action.   The guitar offered in this listing is reliable.   And I guarantee it.   You will not find a better sounding better built acoustic at this price.

    So why not buy a Harmony that is now built  correctly?

    THE FINE PRINT

    No warranty is expressed or implied concering the guitar finish and/or appearance.   The guitar looks nice, but there are finish imperfections associated with the rebuilding process.  The back was removed.  New back binding was installed.  It is pretty much impossible to re-apply back binding so as to look completely perfect.   Back and sides were refinished to a lighter color and laquer finished.   (I'd like to meet the lutheir who can duplicate the original Harmony Sovereign B&S dark brown finish.)

    The top is all original.   There are some finish cracks caused  by exposure to cold.   There is the usual wear and tear associated with fourty years of playing and storing.   

    The neck is all original, except for the new nut.  The gear head has the usual scratches and dings due to age and careless handling.  

    The strap peg hole was re-built.  The original peg was missing, and someone had drilled out the hole.   So solid wood filler was glued and a new tapered strap peg hole applied.   The new peg is much nicer than the crappy Harmony original.
