    Best blues guitar in the world if you play REAL blues, not that rocker stuff.
  • silvertoneman - 2005-11-26
    i have this guitar..and as a rocker/punker/MOD, i couldnt ask for a better guitar! it plays amazing, super low action for fast finger picking. the neck is wide and fat, light weight and just an all around great piece of history..its not just for blues like blues Hammer guy who left a comment about "real Blues" If you're white and make good money and your wife/girlfriend has not left you yet..your not playing real blues
    dont be fooled this guitar is just as good if not better in some cases than a gibson or gretsch hollowbody

    My father purchased this model in 1960. I inherited when he passed away 1993. the guitar is mint with the original case. It plays & sounds as the day it was bought. I own several guitars, but this guitar is my favorite. Sorry, this baby is not for sale.
  • Carl Croce - 2008-03-04
    In 1957, when I was 4, as a birthday present for my father, my mother ordered a non-cutaway acoustic archtop from Montgomery Ward and paid for it up front. About a month later, accompanied by a letter of apology that the model she ordered was out of stock, and hoping she would accept an upgrade instead, the Harmony H62 arrived. I couldn't quite reach around the body 3 years later when I started guitar lessons, but I could and did play it - carefully - by the time I turned 9. I have been playing it ever since. The H62 can ring Wes Montgomery octaves, growl Brian Setzer leads and purr Joe Pass chord melodies. I will always play this guitar.
  • Charlton - 2008-03-21
    I absolutly love my H62 (1959 model). I bought my blonde beauty at a pawn shop. This model is so great the neck is just the right size, the action is just about perfect. I own other guitars but I guess you already know this my go to axe.
  • anonymous - 2008-04-09
    Had the opportunity to restore an H62 with the intention of selling it for a sweet profit. But once I had her set up and playing, there was no way I'd sell this guitar. You'll have to pry her from my cold dead hands.
  • nuttysadguy - 2008-05-16
    I've been playing one of these for the last 15 years. I've recorded several CDs with it. One of the most versatile guitars ever. Awesome clean sound through a twin reverb. The neck is chunky - good for big hands. The pickups are my favorite ever. I think they are the same as Gibson was using at the time (1954?). If you can find one buy! You won't be sorry.
  • Mrkenny - 2008-09-29
    I've had more fun playing my H62 than any other guitar I've owned. These guitars are very unique in there ability to cover a lot of tonal territory, mellow Jazz, Blues, to in-your-face Rockabilly. For playing West Coast style Blues and Swing there is nothing better except maybe an Gibson ES5. The P13 pickups are a bit more HI-FI than P90's, very focused. When you wind an H62 up, look out!
  • mercurymike - 2008-10-21
    I just picked up an H62 from a pawn shop. The date stamp inside looks like it says F 53. Could this be the first of the 54 model? It is missing the nut and bridge assembly. Anyone have one or know where to find? No luck so far.
  • The Suitcase - 2009-07-06
    My 1960 Christmas present, the sunburst purchased at Montgomery Ward. Wish I had never sold it. It was a beauty.
  • thedre - 2009-09-24
    These H62's also came with the quarter inch jack in the lower front below, and between the bottom knobs. I believe that's the 1955 model. That's what I just received today...Sept. 24, 2009. I am very impressed with it's big, Gibson L5 tone and feel. headstock has a fine gloss on it that takes it above the typical harmony and kay flat paint jobs from the 50's. THe tortoiseshell binding is what really sets this guitar off, and ties in with the pickguard and switchplate. RIght now it seems to get a noise free sound, the strings sit fine over the neck pickup, but rise too far for the lower pickup.Perhaps a higher nut....but mine's original...and I like the neck pickup...(I'm terrible I put round wounds on everything) but even with roundwounds, this guitar has a big signature sound....the other guy here who says its sounds better than gibson is on to something. A thrill to own.
  • thedre - 2009-10-23
    In my previous comment, I lamely said roundwounds when I meant flatwounds. I suppose that dyslexic, which is a nice way to say that I fell on my head too many times as a kid...
