    I have what I believe to be one of these, but it does not say harmony on the pick guard. It could be a replacement guard? I can make out 1969 on the inside of body.
  • Chris Jack - 2007-11-15
    Are you sure it just hasn't worn off?
  • Ian - 2009-06-02
    I bought my Red Rocket off a friend in high school for $90. He had just bought himself a new Telecaster and wanted to recoup some of the cost. I still have it. The pick guard broke, but I still have the pieces and the original hardware. This is very cool guitar.
  • Darrell A. - 2009-12-28
    I got my Rocket a few years ago. Pickguard was gone(of course). But I made a repro pickguard that looks original. I put new modern retro tuners and strap buttons-that's all. The pickups and wire were good and it has a sound that is so cool.

    I bought my H54/1, in its origional case and seemingly unplayed about 15 years ago. Have played it out for years in bands and love how it plays (my luthier friend did the set-up) and sounds. These were, in my opinion, one of the finest values in guitars - ever!! Love the site, thanks!
  • Donato - 2011-04-20
    Though you say the production years were from 1968 through 1971, My red Rocket says S-72M on the inside body which leads me to believe that it is a 1972. . . serial # 5629H54-1. I saw this Guitar being sold on Bleeker St, Greenwich Village N.Y.C. for $900.00, and it was not half as mint as the one I own. I found mine at a second hand consignment store in N.J. and paid a whole $15.00 for it!!! I guess we all get lucky once in a while, they obviously had d no idea what they were selling me. I think they thought it was a toy??? Oh well. . .

    My H54-1: FS70wf #3740 probably a 9 + out of 10 all original,just some light scratches and some wear at the top of the neck from the case.
  • Auriemma - 2011-06-19
    I just bagged one off of ebay.....it'll be here in a week......stay tuned......we all know there's nothing like the rocket....everything about this guitar is rock & roll.
  • Ernie - 2012-06-13
    I recently got one of these on EBay. Very decent condition for the age. Action adjusted up very well. The back of the body looks like it went through the war. The front is almost flawless.
    I have always been amazed by the quality of sound from the DeAmond pickups. The range from
    deep bass for rythm (tone turned off completely )to a sharp tele-like bite (tone on full) is amazing. There is also a good threshhold of adjustment for anything in between ( a warm jazzlike lead for example).There is nothing quite like these Harmonys. I also have a Silhouette. ( see my comments under Silhouette section ).

  • Garagefreak - 2012-12-23
    I've got one, a 68' in near mint shape. Pickups sound great and the neck is super. Nails the early kinks sound. I love it!
  • savageblues - 2013-04-01
    My daughter (16 yrs at the time) wanted to trade in her Tele for a cool vintage guitar. She found one of these. It has a cool vibe. I was surprised how good the pick-ups sound. The guitar has a slightly flimsy feel to it.
  • Seaners - 2013-06-11
    I found my 72 Rocket at an acoustic shop downtown. I love Harmoney guitars so I traded my Ibenez for it and have zero remorse. It's missing it's pick guard (of course) but everything is original and in great condition, just one or two dents. Sounds great through my amp!
