I recently got this guitar for Christmas and I am just starting to learn how to play. I love it! It is awesome! It has been dinged and dented quite a bit but it still plays well. Maybe a little buzzing when i play low notes but, still, its great! It doesnt have a tag on the inside specifying what type it was so i went on the search and found this is it! Love it!

I received one of these guitars from my neighbor who had been carrying the guitar around with her, virtually unplayed, since it was new. Fortunately, the strings were slack, so no pull on the neck. This guitar is in like new condition, though the bridge warped a bit, leaving it concave. Just have to carve a new bridge for it out of Ebony, and it will be good to go. Even with the bad bridge on it, you can hear how nice it sounds. The ladder construction is as nice on this guitar as it is on all other Harmony guitars. No doubt this guitar will outlast me.

I picked up one of these. Put electric strings on it and found an adjustable bridge to put on her. It has the coolist, blusey sound of any guitar. It is a blast to play.

I bought one of these to use for bottleneck slide blues playing. Its superb!
Beats every other acoustic hands down for sound and ease of play. Since I got it I also use it regularly for finger playing as well as slide. The action is so low and playable. These guitars are probably one of the most underrated guitars in the world. I wish I'd had one when I first started learning to play, life would have been a whole lot easier!

I just picked up one of these off Craigslist for $20. Clean! Seller had owned it for a few decades without playing... a gift from his parents. The third string tuning machine doesn't work under pressure... makes it as far as F, but F# and G are not possible.
Good guitar for the money, and for my boys to learn on.

I learned to play on mine bought in 1973 new.Gonna put some new strings on her and maybe a pickup she has a great sound really unique. She's worth a million to me.

I have this H928 model, the size makes it perfect for traveling and practice but if getting one it is very important to check on the neck due to its very easy to find them with a super high attack and sometimes to fix the neck bending could be expensive and not worth it, also the tail piece can be a bit loose because the wood is not very resistant to hold the screws in an old one and its hard to keep it in tune, check it very well before buying one, for the rest of it is a great guitar, lots of fun!
