    I played one of these about 1972-74 in the Birmingham area (UK) in a blues trio called 'Fatty'. I was longing for a strat back then so I sold it on to get one. I have good memories of it. Fine neck, good for fast blues phrasing. Good 'nasal' sound from the p/u's. I was playing it through an AC30, and in small places, when we played loud, there were feedback problems which I finally got over by stuffing the body cavity with cotton wool. I still use the 335-style guitar (though now I do use a strat & a tele as my main axes). I've been by the Epiphone 'Sheraton', and currently own an old Epiphone 'Dot' 335 ("elitist"). I'd like to get hold of an old H75 again. I reckon it had a 'gretsch-y' tone.

    I actually own two of these... the tobacco H-76, and one of these babies that has been re-branded as a Silvertone! The only major differences are the lack of a tortoise-shell cap on the headstock and the "lower end" DeArmond pickups without the adjustable pole pieces. Oddly enough, inside the treble-side F-hole, this guitar is stamped as an "H77" model... but its got the Bigsby... Guess they changed their minds afterward? hahaha...

    I got this from Freedom Guitars in San Diego a few years ago. It rocks! Plug this bad baby in and turn up to "11" and play Wild Thing...abracadabra-you've just turned in Hendrix @ Monterey!
    The D'Armonds are some nasty pickups.
    Can't see why these and other Harmony guitars get disrespected so often. They hold their own against much more expensive axe's and sometimes out-perform them. My H-44 is the other babe with my H-1260 Sovereign.

    My H76 has pickups dated Aug 27 1964. I bought it on ebay not long ago for about $250 with all the electronics intact but no nut, tuners, bridge, knobs, or Bigsby. After putting less than another $300 into it,imho, is now a better guitar than one that just went on eBay for $640. And more importantly, it looks, plays, and sounds great.

    I just finished restoring my H-76 [serial number 4776]. It had no hardware when I got it, so I had to find the parts, and had to have mounting plates for the pups custom-made [of stainless steel] by Abel Lopez of Vision CNC in Clovis, CA. The middle pup wasn't working, so I had it re-wound with reversed polarity by Chris Hernandez of New Haven, IN., and, now, it not only makes very Strat-like tones when the middle pup is combined with either or both of the other two, but does so without hum. Dan Atkins of The Tone Shop, Fresno, CA reglued the headstock overlay and did the assembly and set-up. Now she plays and sounds great!

    I love this guitar. Mine is stamped H75, but it has a Bigsby that appears to have been added later... so its effectively an H76. When I gig with this guitar, people always comment on it.

    I have an original H76 in darker tobacco burst. It has no body scratches from belt buckles, no back of neck wear from playing cowboy chords. The neck is like an aircraft carrier, and it plays like it was new. It's in it's original chipboard case. This is a closet guitar. It was bought new in 67, and played very little. I like the way it just seems to fit. Lucky to have it

    My grand-father gave me this bad boy. He bought it in 1971 and played with it in his band till the late 80's. It is a family treasure and will definitely go to my kids if they start playing guitar. It is a pleasure to play some blues and even some good old rock'n roll with it.

    I had a Heathkit version of this guitar. It had the red finish. You received in the kit all the preassembled wood parts. Soldered the harness to wire the switches, jack, and pickups. After wiring you installed the Bigsby and strung it up. It was quite a bit cheaper than the same guitar at a music store. I loved that Guitar, and wish I had not sold it. I also had the Heathkit amplifier, which was pretty neat looking. Blew it up sometime in the 70s. BTW, this and other projects evolved into a life time career as an Electronics Engineer.
