    Aha! The H6510! AKA the HG510! Seventies version of the H1310!
  • griole - 2009-08-11
    I have a pristine H6510, and I love playing it. It's as light as a feather, and sounds rich and balanced. I have owned several Harmony guitars over the years, but this model stands out from all the rest as far as quality is concerned. If you get a chance to buy one, DO IT!

    I have this guitar and it is my favorite when it is time to sit back, smoke a cigar and play a little Leon Redbone.

    I bought a 6510 that needed work (neck reset, bridge, nut, minor refinishing,and a pickguard)but it was well worth the investment. It's a great guitar, especially for jazz. Plays like butter.Not sure how it compares to the earlier 1310/11s. Thinking about adding a floating (moneky on the stick) pickup if I can find one. Agree with all the other comments. This one is a keeper.

    I have one of these with TWO ENGLARGED mustache pickups, both of which do NOT have adjustable pole pieces. It is is NOS condition, from an old music store that closed this year. I found it from the guy who bought out the inventory, and paid only five hundred dollars for it! WOW-- It is stamped F-70, and also has a large "P" stamped inside it. I believe this "P" may stand for Prototype. I believe I have something ultra rare and very cool here.

    mrlutton, your guitar is not so rare I'm afraid. From what you describe it's an H68, a late electrified version built by adding pickups on acoustic bodies (acoustic archtops were not selling so well in the seventies). Some H68 are stamped H1310, some are stamped H6510 (H6510 is the new number of H1310 in the seventies).

    Just received my "73". Maybe among one of the last ones built. It sounds and feels great.
    Chicago/USA vintage is better than most anything in
    the guitar stores today!

    I have one with the tortoise-shell headstock covering. Using a penlight, I can clearly see the model stamp on the inside of the body. It reads 8118H6510. The "6" is a fully closed and is definitely not a "G" as I was expecting. There is another faint green manufacturing code with the words Made in USA beside it.
