    At last I've found out what this is... I bought mine in a little shop in San Francisco.. couldn't put it down. But they had it marked as a 1939 regal style guitar. Nice to know what it is finally as it has no marking or anything. Sounds great, really distinctive sound, I never heard a guitar sound like this before hard to explain it. No much low, the mids are killing and the highs sparkle. The necks coming away from the body a bit on mine, so I use guage 12's and tune down half a step (did have 11's but I can't stand flimsy strings.)

    Throaty! That's the word... Throaty! That's how this sounds... it's got that old throaty blues sound, forgot to mention the lovely V prfile neck and how well this thing plays and intonates. If you find one in good condition, buy it, they are great!

    Great little guitar with a very cool, bluesy tone...almost like a resonator but woodier! Mine has a faint gold painted stencil of wheatsheafs around the bottom outer edge of the body...very tastefully done art deco stencil pattern. Worth every penny of the $20 I paid for it a few years ago. Purchased it from an old furniture refinishing store of all places.

    I got one of these off my grandmother about 1990. She didn't know much about it and she mostly played ukelele. Like it says above great in the middle and top end. Great for acoustic jams playing melodies and lead breaks over ragtime and old school blues. Very difficult to play slide on because of the flat fretboard but you could get it set up so the strings are rolled. ;)

    I'm pretty sure this model is what I've got, but I am confused by the term "arched top". I'm wondering if it means something different from "archtop" as the guitar pictured is clearly a flat top.
    I love my little old-timey Harmony anyway, but I would like to know exactly how old it is.

    As stated in the description, this guitar has an "arched top", and yes it means the same as "archtop". "Arched top" were the exact words used by Harmony in catalogs. It's not a flat top, as evidenced by the bracket used to hold the pickguard. Flat top models don't need a bracket. But many of these models today have a sagged, almost flat top. This is due to ageing, but they had a real arch when new.
