    Got this for my birthday at Sam Ash, Hempstead NY in Nov 1969 or 1970. I fell for the sunburst finish and Fender style headpiece.
    The neck separated from the body early on. Playing F Barre chords were real hard.
    Still have it now, use it for slide guitar. High action works for that.
    Used it play slide on Linda Draper's studio version of Rick Nelson's "How Long"

    I just reconciled the dovetail to correct the geometry of an H167. The neck iteself is of poplar while the bridge and fretboard (25.125 scale) are Brazilian rosewood. Back and side are of birch and the soundboard is a low grade of Sitka spruce. After neck reinstallation the bridge was reslotted to allow a taller saddle and correct intonation. Truss rod was never adjusted so it took several turns before it loaded up and straightened the neck. In normally do not repair a guitar of this quality but since it is mine I felt the sound might be interesting. What a surprise. Plays beautifully with remarkable tone and projection. I have restored and made guitars fulltime for almost 40 years and this illustrates that you can't judge a book by its cover. I love "sleeper" guitars like the H167.

    F.Y.I. I have a H167 labeled S69. So they were made in atleast 1969 and 1970.

    My H167 is from ’69 and pretty much immaculate. No fret or finger board wear, no dings or cracks. I reset the neck (didn’t need to touch the frets) and the action is now smooth and low and it’s the most comfortable of all my Harmonys to play but with Martin 11s fitted, the sound lacks brightness. The neck has nicer feel but it can’t touch the sound of my Sovereigns.

    Aquired this guitar to match up with my Rocket.It does, same chubby neck. I strung it with electric guitar string since it seems this model has a weak neck. and I like bending strings. Plays nice, sounds nice, looks nice.

    This was first guitar in my house, growing up. I believe it's a '68.
    I had always thought the side and backs were maple based on the great looking "curling" on the back-- maybe birch can be similar ?
    Anyway, I've played this guitar out live a handful of times (miked),
    and recorded with it on more than one occasion-- including duet with Stacey Earle. I love this guitar. Needs a neck job, and it will get it. Very unique tone!

    This is really the same guitar as the Black Sovereign 1204, which I own also. They are actually my favorite Harmonies. I also have an H166. the only difference is the shape of the head stock. Mine all have awesome Adirondack spruce tops. I count around 45 growth ring per inch on one of them. There are just the guitar for my style of playing which I admit is pretty raw and bluesy.
