1940 era Harmony or Regal Blues Parlor Guitar in Philly for $75

The seller seems to be right on the money about this guitar.  Likely a Harmony, Regal or Supertone and most likely from the late 1930's or early 1940's (I've had very similar models over the years).  This should have a nice gentle V-shaped neck and a real "woody" bluesbox tone.

If you are like me you always have to have at least one of these old ladder-braced USA blues guitars in open tuning ready to do a little Delta slide shout n' stomp.

Here's a 1930/40's parlor guitar. I couldn't find a name on it but I'm assuming it's a harmony/supertone/sears brand guitar. It's got the small parlor body and slotted headstock common to blues and ragtime guitars of the time. It's got slightly raised action, so it's great for slide. It plays well in standard as well (it's no electric guitar...all I'm saying). If you're reading this ad than you probably know the score with these types of guitars.

When I got it the nut and one tuner were cracked. They've been replaced with pieces from Stewart MacDonald. Everything works as it should, just wanted to make sure everyone knew it had two non-original parts.

Please send me an email with any questions you may have. I live in SNJ but am in philly often...

Thanks and have a good one.
