    I was lucky enough to find one of these babys in Santa Barbara back in '96. Looks like Gibson used the body shape/size as a model for its J-185, except Harmony used curly mahogany for b/s instead of maple. Even has cross inlays on the feet of the bridge. (Is it coincidental that the J-185 has Maltese crosses here?) This is such a cool guitar. Very lively, very sexy looking. The envy of my collector/player buddies. Love it.

    I have one of these that was purchased from a convent that was relocating to another location.

    Just had the neck reset on mine, a very playable guitar and probably the coolest looking one I have.

    Just found a beautiful original from an estate for a song and a dance. The guitar is untouched and in excellent original condition like opening up a time capsule when i opened the case. A high quality guitar, forced to sell it will be on ebay tomarrow.

    My sister found an H1251 Harmony Roy Smeck professional under her house- it had been there probably for 50yrs. Anyway- it's restored now and plays beautifully. A real treasure.
