Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..
A 1957 H39 Harmony Hollywood Archtop Electric Guitar with the Original Softshell Case.
This cool guitar has been well cared for… the only thing we had to do is install a new cord in the volume bracket. That was missing. It has the awesome sounding Hersey Bar Pickup like on the H44’s, original knob and electronics, tuners, tailpiece and even the pickguard. Its all there and works great.
This Rockin Axe is made to be played. I couldn't believe the sound from the Pickup. Fat, Full and in your Face...This is a Rock-a-billy Guitarist dream. The neck angle on this guitar is very good. No sore fingers playing this one. We sell a ton of Harmony guitars with these Hersey Bar pickups. My customers love them as do I.
Here’s some great history on these cool guitars from the Harmony Website…
H39 - Hollywood (1952-1967) - Electric Archtop
1 pickup - H39 model starts in 1952 but did not yet wore the Hollywood name/logo. It had a red treble clef logo on headstock, as seen on the Archtone acoustic series (H1215). Then in real life some early (53-56) models had an "atomic" logo ala Stratotone ( H44). H39 has a "Hershey bar" pickup until 1958, with a volume control and cord attached to the pickguard (and a red jack plug...). "Golden" DeArmond pickup is installed in 1959, with usual "internal" tone and volume pots, and jack on body's side. Check also earlier H37 and H38 Hollywood models with black and gold colors.
This is the last year that Harmony had this Hersey Bar Pickup. They went to the Gold Foil DeArmond in 1958. How do we know this guitar is a 1957 for sure? I couldn’t get a pic but it has a nice bright F-57 stamped next to the model number in the F Hole. Stands for Fall of 1957. Great to be able to fix a year of manufacture on this historic guitar!
The guitar ships in the shown Original Soft Shell Case. It’s as nice as the guitar! All latches, hinges and original handle are still with it. The Gold Plush is still in great shape and it even still has the accessory box inside. What a cool Case for your cool guitar!
The guitar is awesome but sold as is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers instruments for over 20 years now and they all loved the guitars I found for them. This cool Harmony will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars!
