models H50 - Spanish Electric Guitar

1 pickup - "Grand Auditorium" size - One of the first Harmony electrics - Solid spruce top, solid maple body, 3 ply w/b/w heavy binding on body.

    My grandfather has a H-50. He pick it up in California in 1942. It may be even older, thats just when he bought it...

    I have an H50. I recently acquired it as a gift from a collector. The electronics don't seem to work but I haven't done any troubleshooting on it yet. I'm just enjoying the rich acoustic sound with the 'trons flowing.

    My wife, Sue, and I just "finally" came into posession of her Dad's "original owner" H-50. This beauty had been "stored" in a closet at her old homeplace by her mother since her dad's death in 1973! Never taken out, tuned up, nor touched in all those years ..until last week, when "Mom" decided to let it and another old classic, a 1954 Danelectro Electric, come stay with us.. Already cleaned, re-strung (with a vintage set of Black Diamonds), tuned, and started pickin' the H-50.. Ain't nothin' can compare in today's market!

    Just got a great one in. All original and old Klusens on bouard. Same color as the one pictured here. I bought it for the pick-up.

    I have an H65(very similar but all blonde maple). I'm trying to restore it. Zen900@aol.com

    I have a H50 with the name "ELZY" in nickel lettering on the pickguard.
    It's a great old guitar that has 1 repaired crack on the back. It still plays and sounds great.
  • Ted - 2013-03-27
    I recently picked up the Alden version of this guitar. The electronics work, but there are places on the back where. It needs reglued. The neck has a slight bow to it that I hope to slowly straiten with time and. Some constant pressure. I can't wait to get it finished.

    Just acquired a 1949 H50 - surely shows wear, but plays incredibly - the pickup is fantastic - never seen anything like it nor heard anything fatter - WOW! It is the perfect fit for the swing-style music our band plays. What a gem!
  • Allan Clark - 2013-07-04
    I sold mine to Montreal blues-recoding artist Jerome Browne. I'd like to buy it back!
  • Buddy Vazquez - 2016-03-12
