I just got a 1935 G-700 Grand Concert Cremona, the version with the high-placed f holes. Mine has a beautiful polished brown sunburst spruce top, looks like French polish rather than a regular guitar finish...looks like a cello. The back is striped mahogany, slightly arched, binding on the top and back as well as along the rosewood fingerboard. The inlays look hand cut and are slightly off center...the neck had a v and is very comfortable.
My guitar came from Tennessee, and I was told it was owned by a man who played it in local bands in the 1940's. It has cracks in the sides, probably from being dry, but it was very well cared for-no belt buckle wear or scratches from playing, minor wear on the frets. I plan on slowly getting it back in playing shape an using it. It is a beautiful mostly hand made instrument, the best Harmony guitar I have ever seen...very high quality for any maker, IMO.
