Harmony Monterey H1457 Vintage Archtop Acoustic GuitarHarmony
For sale is a beautiful archtop acoustic guitar from Harmony. This model, the H1457, was the top end of the "Monterey" line of grand auditorium arched guitars, and with it's beautiful blonde finished spruce top this guitar is a real looker. This guitar is a great playing instrument, with good medium action and a nice trebly tone it's a real dream to play. Cosmetically the guitar is in good condition, with finish cracking and checking across the body and some pick wear across the top. It appears as if the 12th fret was replaced and there are signs of that work being done, as well as a crack in the binding along the 12th fret that seems as if it was a result of that refretting. The fretboard extension is sloped a little downward and the neck might have been reset as well. Our luthier has examined the instrument and said it is structurally sound and solid. This is a fantastic vintage acoustic guitar from a bygone era of instruments that will put a smile on your face each and every time you play it.
