I just unearthed one of these. It's being worked on now. We hooked it up and it worked fine. When I discovered it I saw the back of it first and I new it was something special. It was so dirty I thought it was black it's good to know it's really blue. It's all there though. Roughed up but complete. The neck is straight and on tight.

This model was given to me by an old guy who found alongside the road out in the Oregon desert. It was pretty 'dinged' up, but structurally sound. I re-fretted it, replaced the bridge, nut and strings. Now, it plays decent and is a great conversation piece where it hangs on the wall in my office.

Found one at a yard sale with Harmony amp. Old fella said he got it when he was 17 but never really took an interest, so into the closet it went. Guitar and tube amp model H-193 are like new with case, cord, strap too. I was happy to give his asking price of $35. I still quiver when I think about it.
