Harmony H54 Guitar and H305A Amp Set, 1960

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.

Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

This Breedlove Cascade is likely named for the Cascade Mountains, a range that passes through Northern California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. It is perhaps a modified “A style” design, where the lower part of the body is teardrop shaped and the upper part has truncated horns, somewhat suggesting an “F style”. The body is built with Sitka Spruce for the carved, F-hole top, and flamed Maple for the sides, neck and carved back.

Epiphone John Lennon Revolution Casino 1803 of 1965 Natural, 2006

Epiphone John Lennon Revolution Casino 1803 of 1965 Natural, 2006

This Epiphone John Lennon model was favoured by a number of prominent British guitarists during the early-mid 1960s, notably Keith Richards and three members of the Beatles. While both Paul McCartney and George Harrison had personal Casinos, John Lennon’s 1965 model is better known, especially in its stripped-down form.

Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

The Gibson Flying V was introduced in 1958 as part of an effort by Ted McCarty to modernize Gibson’s reputation with futuristic designs, along with the Explorer and the only-prototyped Moderne. While a few prominent players immediately picked up the Flying V, it was not popular and production ceased by 1959. During 1963, a few were built from leftover parts, but the two initial 1958 production batches totaled around 80 instruments.
