|Serial Number||S070910092 Made in Korea, probably by Samick for Harmony.|
|Pricing||$529 CDN with case. No Longer Available|
|Neck||Maple neck with bound rosewood fingerboard and dot markers. The neck is set into the body; many original Harmonies were bolt-ons. 24 1/8″ scale length.|
|Frets||20 medium frets in excellent condition, very little wear.|
|Body||Maple laminate body, with sound post.|
|Finish||Cherry sunburst finish in really excellent condition.|
|Hardware/electronics||Two gold foil “moustache” pickups, selector switch and individual volume and tone controls, original style cream plastic knobs. Trapeze tailpiece and ‘floating’ tune-a-matic type bridge. Kluson Deluxe tuners with cream plastic buttons. Harmony logo on the pickguard.|
|Playability/Action||This guitar plays great. The action at the moment is reasonably low, the neck isn’t chunky and is in great shape. Lots of room to move the action around as you wish. It’s a fullsize semi-acoustic, and weighs just under 6 lbs.|
|Comments||Many people played Harmony guitars in the 50’s and 60’s – Keith Richards used a Harmony Metor in the early days of the Rolling Stones. This reissue H54 Rocket is really quite good, and – I’ve just checked – would also accept a B-6 Bigsby with little fuss.
As is, it’s an excellent blues or rock guitar with a pretty darn high coolness factor!
