I have a H37 and it has the color and finish of the H39. Year was 1962. Maybe in the transition to the new H39 they used old H37 backs. Any Ideas?

I just picked up a Harmony Hollywood today from a co-worker who had found it at a yard sale. I feel like I've won the lottery! This is such a nice instrument and the pickup is working and sounds rich! Put a new set of strings on this baby and we are going to play! btw...my serial number is 3653H37 but there is no date stamp that I see. Any idea on the year? Thanks!

I've have owned a Harmony just like this one since 1963. It was a Christmas present and has given me many years of enjoyment. I now mainly play a different guitar, but this one still get played on occasion and is on permanent display in my living room. (I call it Sam)

I have one that was handed down to me by my dad.He and a friend use to drive from one radio station to another singing gospel songs in the early 50's.It was hanging on a wall by a string which broke causing the top to come off.I've put it back together for the most part and I'm looking forward to playing it.

I went to buy an early H37, to a very low price. The pickup and volume box missing. But the guitar is in a very good shape. I'am very happy ! I would want to know were I can find the serial number ?
