    Like most Harmonys', this was my first instrument. Great looks, easy to play, great sound, especially when plugged into the Fender Bassman. Our garage band of the late 60's was my start, holding the ole Harmony with a prideful grin. Looking at the photos of the H-25 Harmony bass brings back a flood fond memories.
    I remember meeting countless obligations and performing odd jobs in order to save the cash to purchase one. I got mine at cost from an instrument dealer happy to get me started in music (my dad).
    Unfortunately, the bass was sold years ago and I haven't seen one since. Thanks for the memory.

    I still have my H25 and love it...bought new in the 60s, my first and only Fender-style bass.

    I just finished the restoration of this great bass guitar. It sounds and feels better than the 76 p-bass I had. Rich tone and everybody digs this oversized headstock. Brazilian rosewood fretboards like this one are my favorite.

    I just got one of these, and got a really good deal on it too. It's a great player, with an unusual neck for a bass, but if you know how Harmony guitar necks are, you'll love it.
    The sound...as a former player of an upright bass, I'm surprised at how close this guitar can get to that sound. There's a reason why these are known as great recording basses!

    Have a 1971 H25, heavily modified. I bought it for the unconventional neck and string spacing mostly, but also for the looks and pickup. I took off the pickup screws because the way I play, the strings would hit them and that would be the most annoying thing to hear. Surpise! I got much more output volume that way, who would've known? Then I changed the bridge for a fully adjustable Schaller bridge, and that brought more sustain and much more punch. I also re-wired it with industrial grade wiring and parts, so now it's PUP --> on / off toggle switch --> tone knob --> 1/4" plug. I have no use for volume or those rocker switches that change position by merely vibrating as I played. Now it's definitely a keeper, I used it live as well as for recording, it's the only bass I play, and since I bought it last november my Fender has been collecting dust. Nothing beats it on distortion, it was designed like a guitar and it shows, awesome pickup, awesome neck, I love my bass.

    My first bass. Got it in late 1969 or early 1970, can't remember. I eventually stripped the paint and clear coated it for some reason - I was 15.

    I have had one of these for a long time and havn't been able to find an original photo. My uncle donated it to my highschool and some jerk beat the crap out of it, so I took it. Had to strip all the pain from it it was so banged up, then resanded and stained. Figure I would never get rid of it, so it couldn't hurt. The bridge with the damper has broken though. Does anyone know where I can get this bridge!?!?!

    My first Bass, Ok for a beginner

    I just pick one of these up at one of my thrift stores with the original case. Everything is there. She's a beauty. I'm in the process of cleaning her up and cleaning the electronics. What a find!

    ...Now have the matching pair. H19 and H25. They look good together!
  • Gary Beck - 2014-06-11
    I have one I got in 1966 when I was in sixth grade(Oct 3 1966 stamped under faceplate). Had to clean the pots etc., internals looked brand new. Should as I only played it about 8 weeks. Picked it up again in high school & played it a few months. Been sitting 42yrs. Has original flat wound strings that still sound good today. I just got done re-setting it up & it plays & sounds nice. A bit rough compared to todays stuff as technology has made cheap guitars unbelievable. I guess I'll have it buried with me.
