Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A beautiful 1967 Barclay made by Harmony H74-3 Meteor Style Guitar with the super hot DeArmond Gold Foil Moustache Pickups......It has tons of player vibe, looks, and sound ...the guitar is Pro Setup and plays just great. One of the best Harmony necks I have found.....
Barclay guitars was one of the many "House Brand" Guitars made by Harmony in Chicago. They made guitars for many Department Store Catalog Sales such as Sear, JC Penney, Montgomery Wards and W.T. Grants. The Barclay guitars were made to be sold in the Grants Catalogs and some were displayed in the many Grants Department Stores. Grant Stores were concentrated in the East but had as many as 1200 stores before they were credited with the largest Bankrupcy in the USA at that time.
Barclay Guitars are all Harmony made and used Harmony Parts. As evidenced in this guitar. It has the Harmony Tuners, knobs, Bobcat Whammy system, bridge, neck with the Fender Style Headstock aka like the Bobcat, Truss Rod cover, Meteor Body and Pickguard Shape. The Barclay USA logo is still embossed on the pickguard.
This Barclay Guitar has the date stamp of F-67 inside the sound hole which identifies it as a 1967 Guitar. It also has the model number as H 74-3 which is also identified in the Harmony Website as this Barclay model guitar.
This guitar is all original...the guitar is in great shape as is the pickguard and tuners..Only superficial dings here and there. This guitar is in fabulous shape!
There is nothing that detracts from the big booming sound of this cool guitar... The DeArmond Moustache Pickups are huge sounding. I love these pickups...Very toneful and full of life. If you haven't experienced these pickups, be prepared to be impressed...The Guitar has super super low action ..NO sore fingers with this guitar!The sound of these guitars are really 50's and 60's blues, jazz, country, and rock......It has a that distinctive Harmony sound .....The neck is great.......the action is low and the neck is very comfortable to play..You will not want to put his one down when you get it..its a blast to play......I have enjoyed playing it and know it will be a treasured guitar to who ever is lucky enough to get this guitar...
Check out the original Harmony case we have with this guitar. All latches, hinges and original handle are still with it. Accessory box also still present. Its not as nice as the guitar as it has been doing its job. Nice case for your cool Harmony built guitar!
The guitar is very cool but used and vintage so its sold as is no returns..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 Barclay Meteor will certainly not be and exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
