Harmony guitar dating
Back in the Swinging ’60s, one of the coolest things hip companies could do was own a guitar company.After all, guitar-driven pop music was red hot, especially after the success of the Beatles in ’64.Ergo, once you have this your best bet (to get an acturate estimate as to it's fair market value) is to go to Barnes & Nobles or another good book store and look it up in the "Blue Book for Electric Guitars" latest edition, check the copywrite date. Year of manufacture could be on the base of the neck or coded within the guitar's serial number.
The company produced low to mid level stringed instruments. Harmony made more than one half of all the guitars made in this county, more than all the other manufactures together. Many a beginner started with a sunburst Stella by Harmony.
i tried to get a hold of the manufacturer but they only answer questions to dealers! so i dont know if it would be in that book you mentioned or not! Then use the "Blue Book for Acoustic Guitars" latest edition.
