I have one that I am going to try and get restored. It is in pretty bad shape. Paint is cracked and peeling. The top is split below the right F hole. This was my dad's guitar that he gave to me when I started playing back in 1971. If anyone has a suggestion toward getting it fixed, please tell.

My son found a guitar exactly like this in a Salvation Army without a bridge. We had one made by Guitars plus in Victoria BC. It was made out of Brazilian Rosewood and we gave it to my older son on his 23rd birthday. No paint peeling. Original pick guard and no snapped neck historically. It actually sounds great.

I have my Dads guitar, it need to be restored, the normal stuff, cracked paint, and just been played to death. I think my whole family learned to play on this one... Any reputiable restoration folks, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org

I have one of these! It had been modified with a 60's Gibson humbucker and vol and tone knobs. Was a lefty when I bought it in a pawnshop in Calgary in '96! Had it urned around. It sounds awesome!!

A buddy of mine recently brought me one to restore. Cracks at f holes. Someone had started stripping the paint. Neck looks straight but tuner buttons are gone. Looks a pretty tough project, but I'll get it done. I'll try and post some pics of progress on Harmony Guitars Facebook page.
