H1248 - Spanish Electric|
Production year(s) : 1939 (other years possible, not verified)
This appears to be the very first Harmony electric model, in the '39 or '40 catalog. It was named "spanish electric" to distinguish it from the "hawaiian" electric lap steels. Similar models were proposed as Supertone models 293 and 294 in Sears catlogs 1936 and 1937, with acompanying amplifier.

Some of these were sold by Sears in the 30s labled as SUPERTONE. Same p-up as the cast metal Hawaiian Electric Steel Guitars!
