‼️Reduced‼️ Harmony H54 Guitar and H305A Amp Set, 1960

‼️Reduced‼️  Harmony H54 Guitar and H305A Amp Set, 1960

Here we’re looking at something relatively rare – a Harmony guitar and amp set purchased together around 1960, and from their condition, it looks like they were quickly put away. These two pieces, especially the Harmony H54 guitar, are among the cleanest we’ve seen from that period. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish on Harmony guitars from the 1950s and 1960s was thin, and easily damaged with normal use.
