Instrument Categories: , , ,

The new Harmony Rebel solidbody electric marks the return of what was at one time of the world’s largest instrument manufacturers.

Harmony dates back to 1892, was purchased by Sears, Roebuck & Co, in 1916 and were based in Chicago, Illinois. From the 1940s until closing in 1975 Harmony built millions of guitars, mandolins, banjos ukuleles and other instruments in the low, mid and professional ranges. These instruments were sold under a host of brand names including Silvertone, Stella, Harmony and Vogue. However, the increasing tides of of low cost import models pushed Harmony into bankruptcy in 1975.

In 2018, Bandcamp Americas LLC purchased the name and assets and has begun offering new models like the Harmony Rebel, built at a plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Here we’re looking at a new double cutaway Harmony Rebel in a lightly metallic Burgundy finish. It uses a bolt-on neck construction, with both the body and neck of Mahogany. The neck has a 22 fret, 25 inch (635mm) scale length Ebony fingerboard with Mother of Pearl dot position markers. The headstock tips back slightly to maintain downward pressure on the nut without the need for string trees, and locking tuners are installed. For body hardware, there is a short three saddle bridge – rather like a cut-back Telecaster bridge. Pickups are a pair of new, hand wound Harmony Gold Foil models, leading to a pickup selector and master Volume and Tone controls. The controls are capped with original style ‘Cupcake’ knobs in creme plastic.

The new Harmony Rebel is a high quality instrument, with definite retro looks. It’s well built and finished, has a decent factory setup, and sounds great. It’s sold with a MONO brand padded gig bag.

More From The Builder On The Harmony Rebel:

“The Harmony Rebel has a look of its own and is not afraid to stand out. The model boasts two gold foil humbuckers with well-defined mids, tight bass and treble clarity. The wiring is straightforward to enable players going from all-out rocking, to more dialed back music.
