models H912 - Stella 12 string
Acoustic flatop 12 string - Sunburst
Production year(s) : 1964-1968 (other years possible, not verified)

12 string "moderately priced" - 12 frets neck - Auditorium size. The 1965 catalog says : "CAUTION : A 12 string guitar should never be tuned up to regular 6-string guitar pitch, to avoid pulling up the top or bowing the neck. Experienced players recommend tuning three, or four half-tones lower." Was later replaced by very similar H913.

    i have a h912 with date stamp F70. Fall of 1970
  • Dennis - 2008-07-22
    I have a Harmony Stella 12 String The serial # is 2309H912
    Not syre as to what the first four numbers indicate. Can anyone help. Thanks.
    This is a great sounding instrument.
  • Taylor I. - 2009-03-26
    I have the Stella H912 with a maroon sunburst finish and a white pick-guard. It was in okay condition when I bought it for twenty bucks. It needed to be cleaned bad, it needed the main back brace right beneath the sound hole, it needed a new bridge and a neck reset. I did all myself and it is playing like never before!!!! The neck reset wasn't too hard and its great to play now. The only thing left to do is to get my baby re-fretted! Anyone know the specific woods used?

    ihave a harmony stalla star with issues it motivated me to go 12 string and istil play it hard to play but what sound
  • Chris Young - 2010-11-26
    Harmony is the modern promogenitor of the pre-1940 Oscar Schmidt Stella guitars,probably the greatest American guitars ever produced,without the second skin and x-braceing that demand high tuning and its need for frequent string change/replacement.The best Harmony manufactured models I believe are the Barclay and the silvertone series,I am a Blind Willie McTell 'scholar'and have owned and played all including the Stella-Harmony 12 string models,but I recently bought(and had to sell)a totally unique model with a sealed MAHOGANY sided body,a solid headstock with a star,and 4 stars on the inside label stating only"Stella"What was this myseriously high end model to any other harmony produced instrument!

    I bought one of these guitars for 30 bucks. It sounds great. The neck needs reset but is playable. Biggest neck I have seen on a guitar! No serial no. or model number. Has the star, slot headstk.
    What year?
  • Freakfase - 2013-01-05
    I own one of these. I have to say that the neck is plenty strong to handle a regular tuning . Note that strings sold in 1968 (& prior) weren't as technologically sound and since then a good nickle wound or phos. string isnt quite as tense as manufacturers suggested. Although it is totally great to downtune and use a capo on the 2nd or third fret. I love mine. Bless Bill for selling it to me !!!
  • Thomas - 2014-08-21
    I paid 100 dollars for this 12 string. Mine was made fall of 1967.
