1940’s-50’s Folk Art Nautical Americana Archtop Guitar; Harmony? - For Sale
1940’s-50’s Folk Art Nautical Americana Archtop Guitar; Harmony?
Here is a super old American arch top guitar!
Possibly an old Harmony. It is decorated in nautical motifs.
The original pick-guard is painted as a whale. There is a large fouled anchor, mid body, beneath the strings. There is what appears to be a manta-ray between the tail-piece and the fret-board is painted in gold and red (much worn from playing).
What an awesome piece of nautical Americana!
The guitar is in very good condition for age, with a straight neck, low action, good frets and an excellent body with no cracks (just age wear and scratches as in photos).
The tuners and bridge are replacements and the tail-piece looks original (although there appears to have been a different tail-piece employed at some time). The pick guard is original and very rare to be intact!
The guitar has a V neck and plays very well and sounds great.
A unique piece of mid-century Americana!!!
No case but will be packed extremely well for shipping.
