This vintage Harmony Stratotone found its way to us at the 2024 Dallas vintage guitar show.

The guitar is in excellent condition and shows some honest playwear.  It is all original with the exception of the truss rod cover and pickup selector knob, which was missing when I bought it.  I added the vintage chicken-head knob.  The original endpin/strap button is broken.  Everything else is stock, and the pots are dated from late 1962.  

The neck is good on this example, something that can't be said for all Harmony guitars from the period.  It plays well and the pickups have that unique tone that Harmony players love.  

The original case is included.
