June 20, 2016Before you ask….. Yes that wear is all real… One of our favourite clients is Jimmy Watts and this is one of our favourite guitars, which sadly he has to part with to finance his latest album.Of his three guitars he asked me “which one will be the most desirable?” by far the best is this one.We’ve mantained this guitar since new and contrary to appearance, structurally she’s in great condition. The Red Cedar sound board produces the sweetest tone. She’s really played in and the neck feels amazing. We also have, not one but three pick ups on board going out to three seperate output jacks conceived and custom made in house. A bug, a piezo under saddle pick up and my personal fave: a calibrated “Charlie Christian” style P90 Cover made in house just so you can run it through a guitar amp get seriously fat tone…..She also sports one of our compensated nut for better tuneability and intonation. This truthfully is”that’ mythical guitar everyone hopes to find.$835.00 inc equally road worn case.

What to say about this guitar. The tone is both mellow and loud. This is an excellent strummer or finger picker with a playing that’s slinky.
We restored this guitar in 2008 and she hasn’t moved and require no setting up, just a new set of strings when we traded her back in.. The sound board has been re-braced with scalloped bracings and the neck has been re-set and re-fretted. The post op work is flawless with no indication that the repairs were ever carried out. The “string through” bridge has been replaced with a “pin bridge” which we made in house. The dual pick up system was also made in house and sports a internal bug and a removable sound hole pick up controlled by two volume controls. Amplified she sounds amazing.

Isn’t she beautiful? We restored this baby from the ground up. Back off, new bracings, bridgeplate, refret, new binding and a whole lotta love. This guitar is a bell and the aged timber makes for a truly resonant little parlor guitar.

Sporting a solid Adirondack spruce top and solid birch back and sides. We have completely rebuilt this old girl from the ground up. New Scalloped bracings finish things off beautifully. The tone is brash, full and loud.
Whether finger picking or strumming you’ll be amazed….

April 24, 2016factory no. 25851118S5 C summer ‘39Why didn’t other makers follow Harmony’s lead. Harmony’s are easy to date as there is stamp inside the guitar that says “S39” or “F38” (meaning fall of 1938, simple really…) This tenor is solid mahogany around and is fully refurbished and re fretted. A bright, chimey sound that belies it’s simple looks Oh yeah! … it has a pick up too

Ser 90090565 C. 1990. Our designation is EF340SC. S for “solid top” and C for cutaway (US model no’s differ). She has a lot of character and I would describe her as “beat but sweet”. Structurally solid and sports a re fret, that famous Takamine electronics, and silky playability
