Guitar Rescue: 1940’s Harmony Archtop Guitar

Guitar Rescue: 1940’s Harmony Archtop Guitar

One of our customers – Buddha from Buddha and the Pests – sent in this video link to his recent Guitar Rescue. It’s nice to see this old Harmony guitar come back to life,  and I wanted to share it with you.

I have a 1940 harmony arch top guitar ,it is possibly older the harmony brand is painted on with old gold coloured paint .I also have an epiphone arch top guitar with a very old hand made double magnet pick up , it is obviously an early experimental guitar using one of the first ever electric hanmade pick ups.the volume knob is possibly of an old valve radio or something. Can you please contact me by email to mouttram@gmail.com . I would be interested in selling it .

It’s really cool to see a piece of history come alive and be refurbished like this!
