This is an extremely rare, Silvertone, Newport, solid body, electric guitar Harmony model H41 from approximately 1954. It's fully functional. The neck is straight and thick. All the electronics work properly. It's 100% original and includes the original tassel (not shown). The original rubber bumper binding is all there and in excellent shape. The guitar has volume, tone, and a tone-defeat switch. The sound is rich and full both with the tone all the way and and down. It's a really sweet sounding little axe! This is a small scale guitar. It comes with a gig bag. Both players and collectors will appreciate this guitar.
