Harmony Master Archtop in Manassas VA for $129

I see these 1950's Harmony Archtops at ridiculously high prices all the time - I don't know who buys them for that much whenyou can find them for prices like this one - $129. And this one is in good shape with the original pickguard!

Of course the action is high... it is always high on these guitars. That's how they came form the factory. Toughen up! LOL!

All original vintage 1950s Harmony jazz box. These guitars did not have adjustable truss rods - - - non adjustable steel rod instead. The action is medium to high but it still plays pretty easily. It will begin to fret out above the 9-12th frets. You could pretty easily do a neck press and reset but I've decided it's not worth the investment for modest improvement in playability in upper registers. Great guitar for blues bits on home recording projects, etc. Vintage Guitar Magazine Price Guide lists these as $500+ guitars. Priced to move. No case. Will ship anywhere.

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.
