Silvertone 628 / Harmony H1200 in Memphis for $275

You don't see these guitars come up for sale very often.

Produced for only a couple of years (1954-1958) the H-1200 is one of the nicest acoustic guitars to come out of the Harmony Chicago factory. A solid spruce top and solid maple body - beautiful Rosewood fretboard (most likely Brazilian) and inlaid MOP markers and fancy acetate headstock overlay.

This probably has about the same dimensions as a modern Taylor 815 jumbo cutaway but don't expect a thin neck on this one - it was the 1950's after all - it should be nice and wide and thick - perfect for Jazz or beefy blues.

1955 Silvertone Model #628 Acoustic Guitar made by Harmony in Chicago (Harmony model #1200). Sunburst finish with single cutaway. Original tuners.
Solid spruce and maple construction (no plywood). SOUNDS GREAT!! Non-adjustable neck is very straight but the action is somewhat high.
High action can be remedied by a luthier. Very beautiful and interesting guitar.

All question will be answere only if you include your phone number along with your Email.

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.
