circa 1965 - HARMONY

Silvertone -Harmony-made - 1478 solid body electric guitar with whammy bar circa 1965 This is an incredibly clean, circa 1965, solid body, Silvertone made by Harmony of Chicago. The guitar is a Fender Jaguar knock-off with two hot DeArmond pick ups, mother-of-pearl inlays on neck, and whammy bar. The finish is a red burst and is extremely clean with only a few minor scratches and nicks. All the electronics work properly and the neck is straight. It is completely original and includes the original case. This guitar will be loved by both players and collectors. It will be very hard to find another one in this amazingly great condition.
