    I have had this guitar since 1976 when it was purchased new from a dealer.How long she had it before I received it I don't know.Although I am not a professional musician,it is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever heard (and I have heard many).I have never done anything to this guitar except play it.It is the easiest playing guitar I have ever played.I have read many reviews about the Harmonys and everyone seems to like their sound but complain of the necks being big...mine isn't.Compaired to a Gibson or a Washburn acoustic, mine's neck is noticably smaller.It was purchased for me by my parents when I was 14 yrs. old and I am now 44.Mary's Music Store in Dickson TN. is where it was purchased and it is still open.

    I too have owned one of these since the mid-seventies. My father purchased it for me in a salvage store--with a damaged headstock and slight crack in the back of the body. The woods on mine are spruce top and mahogany back--so it may have been a specialty instrument. It has a much narrower neck than any twelve string I have ever seen--possible for me (a woman) to play easily. Also, it remains the most beautiful sounding acoustic I have ever heard--and I have two Gibsons in my collection. This is the first time I have been able to locate the model number or any information about it. I believe that we paid about $50 for it.

    My Uncle Was A professional guitar player. He abondoned this guitar in the basement of his house because it was damaged. It was in the basement for over 15 years. I found it, and repaired it. This guitar is awesum... Period! Deep bass. Truly professional sound. A Cold Blodded Sound. Truly Rocks. What An Unexpected Gift Iv'e Been lucky To Find.

    I recently bought a 1973 "gold label" H-1269. It is in unplayable condition, due to a split neck block. I removed the binding and took the back off to repair the block, and found that both back and sides are plywood, the sides having a maple inner core and the back having a Philippine mahogany inner core between outer layers of real mahogany. I will make a solid back as the top is solid. There is the stock spruce bridge-plate, which I will either replace, or glue a maple overlay across it; many bridges have split across the string-holes due to these bridge-plates... The top has the somewhat "heavy" X-bracing of the era, which I will scallop to deepen the bass response. The spruce top has the exact same rosette as a Sovereign jumbo, and there is the standard double dot at the twelfth fret in the bound fretboard. The body is of that lovely "long-waisted" design unique to Harmony "true dreadnoughts" of the era. With a solid back like my H-6600, I expect that this guitar will be a real "winner"!! Pine

    I have this exact 12-string. I bought it in 1972 from a music store. It has served me well and it has better tone quality that much more expensive guitars.

    I had a Regal 12 string acoustics early as 1968, and it was used then. It was a jumbo with plain black binding. It had horrible action but a big voice.

    I bought (actually my folks bought me...) a Regal 12 string, 12 fret neck, jumbo, probably in 1966. It vanished in the seventies! I'd love to see a picture of that model. Took me forever to remember the name. One of your photos shows a black plastic cover with logo on the headstock. I remember mine had that. Great memoeries. Thanks!
