Harmony H-165 all Mahogany acoustic in Phoenix AZ for $100

If you ever wanted a Martin OO or Gibson LGO but couldn't afford it you should check out these Harmony H-165 acoustics. They were made from the 1950's through the 1970's and this one looks to be from somewhere in the middle. They have a nice bright tone considering the mahogany top and body - not as dark as the birch Harmony's or the Gibson or Martin version - and if they neck on this one ain't bowed and the bridge is still snug then everything else should be an easy fix.

I love the shape and look of these - though I have found no evidence Lightnin' Hopkins ever played one. He is often associated with a "Stella" guitar from his early days - but that slothead parlor guitar is nothing like this one and his may have been a pre-Harmony Stella guitar anyway.

Cool old guitar (Lightnin Hopkins was known to pick one), by Harmony. All mahogany body, in good shape. Neck straight but it needs new tuners and a good going over. Nice project for somebody. I don't have time. $100. 480-921-9299
