Harmony H51 or H57 Archtop Electric in Silverlake CA for $95

The seller says this is an H51 but it looks alot like a Roy Smekck H57 to me (minus the pickguard). Either way this is a very desireable guitar for a very low price (only $95!). The crappy glue job on the rear aside that pickup is clearly a GIBSON P13 (Seth Lover design) which harmony used on the Roy Smeck in the early 1950's. Grab it!

Full size Harmony Hollowbody H51 archtop guitar with f holes and pickup.
Volume and tone knobs. P

this is it:

Nice blues/jazz sound. Play it acoustic or electric.
Would be cool as an extra guitar setup for slide or to have in an open tuning.

Note: Over 12 years ago it fell and the back piece of wood came undone.
I glued it back together with glue but didn't clean it up very well so there's still some glue residue.
It's still solid as a rock and doesn't seem to have affected the sound at all.

Location: silverlake/atwater village

  1. I've got one I am about to post on craigslist. I was looking around to see what they're going for. I'm surprised to find the exact guitar I've got. Mine has the pick guard. Check out Minneapolis craigslist if you're interested!


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
