Vintage Jumbo HARMONY SOVEREIGN H 1260 Acoustic Guitar
(actual guitar in photos)
Up for auction is a vintage Harmony Sovereign Jumbo Acoustic, made in the USA. It is the H 1260 and the serial number is inked stamped on the inside of the sound hole at the neck / body. It is a very loud guitar. The bass is especially pronounced, though not muddy or boomy. The guitar has a square bracing that is thought to contribute to its overall feel and tone. It has a medium-high action though nothing extreme (i did the dime test at the 12th fret and can fit 2 under the string… when moved, i hear the string connect with them).
The condition of the guitar is quite good. It has the usual assortment of dings and scratches associated with an instrument of this vintage (i have no idea how old this guitar actually is). There are NO CRACKS in the finish or wood of this guitar. The bridge is NOT LIFTING or CRACKED. To top is in likewise good condition. The binding is good. The neck is very stable (it appears to have been worked on... see photo). I am told that H 1260s either have had neck resets or are in need of neck resets... this one is good to go.
The pickguard is not cracked, peeling off, etc. The frets have much life left in them and the fretboard is lovely. The nut and bridge are both quite fine. The strap peg is intact and its hole is not cracked. Overall, it is pretty darned good shape.
i do not have a case for the guitar, but i will include a brand, deluxe padded gig bag. i will pack it as though it was going into orbit.
This item is sold as is as found with no written or expressed warranty guarantee return credit and or refund. i have provided photos of the actual guitar… they can tell its story better than i am qualified to.
*the Jimmy Page Guitar World cover is only a reference. he has used the same make and model of the instrument featured in this auction.
paypal only please… shipping within the US is $30.
