I have owned a number of these since 1978, and still have two of them. Most of these 3/4-size H162's appear to have the dyed-Maple fingerboard, but I have one which has a Brazilian rosewood board as its larger counterpart, the "000" H162, always had. I have removed the backs and X-braced these guitars, and they make excellent travel guitars. Recently, I found one which had an airbrushed portrait of Keith Richards, completely covering the back. In rebuilding the guitar, I removed this portrait, and found the original, clear lacquer finish still fully intact. Another great Harmony... Pine

Nice little travel guitar. I bought mine off craigslist from an amateur luthier(like myself) who made a very nice patch on the lower bass bout. Good woody sound from such a small box, rings like a bell though the intonation is a razor's edge. More guitar than ukele-like, but definitely a compact sound. The fretboard is narrow, so if your fingers are on the big side I'd grab a Stella instead.
I very much prefer this little axe to the backpacker and modern compact guitars, it has lots of personality, and my travel buddies really like it too. Definitely not a Sovereign, but you can't take those everywhere! jeff

I bought this little guitar in a second hand music store as something to sling on my back and travel with. It's great, solidly made and not so precious you have to worry about it taking the odd knock. I don't bother with a case as its tiny and easy to carry. I love the treble clef headstock and its vintage looks. A great busker!
