Harmony Stratotone H46 with original case! Clean! 1963 Mars Sunburst

Shipping calculated at checkout.

No sales tax for customers outside California.

This 1963 Harmony Stratotone is just about as nice as they come.  There is some inconsequential surface wear here and there, but it is overall an extremely clean example.

The frets are in excellent shape and the guitar plays as well as you can expect a Harmony to play.  As you may know, these don't have the action and playability of a vintage Gibson or Fender, but they have a look, feel and sound that makes them uniquely irresistible.  I really dig this model's control layout and the look of the DeArmond "Hershey Bar" pickups.

The only apparent change is the tuners, which didn't require changes to the headstock - no new screw holes, etc.
