"Harmony by Heath"
Founded in the fourties, Heathkit was a well-known company in the sixties. They sold through their catalog a wide range of do-it-yourself electronic kits. Among them was some guitar amps, so they also proposed Harmony-made guitars. The buyer had to install the electronics in the instrument, but all woodworking and lutherie was done.
1968 was the last year with Harmony guitars proposed in Heathkit catalogs.
- TG-26 : Guitar based on the Harmony H17 (Silhouette Bobkat)
- TG-36 : Guitar based on the Harmony H56 (Rocket 2 pickups with vibrato)
- TG-46 : Guitar based on the Harmony H78 (3 pickups)
