cremona

15 Harmony models

H1262 - Cremona arched (1931) - Sunburst
First Cremona model ? Presented as built like a violin. Grand Concert size. Arched top without braces, different from later archtop models. Spruce top, mahogany body. 12 frets neck. "Fishtails" bridge.
H1263 - Cremona arched (1935) - Sunburst
Grand Concert size. Arched top with f-holes (different construction than the common "archtop" models, no braces under the top). Closer to "arched top" with roundholes models. 14 frets neck, perloid engraved headstock.H1264 is the larger Auditorium size version.
H1264 - Cremona arched (1935) - Sunburst
Auditorium size. Arched top with f-holes (different construction than the common "archtop" models ?). Compare to "arched top" with roundholes models. 14 frets neck, perloid engraved headstock.H1263 is the smaller "grand concert" size version.
H1300 - Cremona VN (1940-1951) - Acoustic archtop - Natural
Engraved tortoise celluloid headpiece. "Nu-Tone" natural finish, carved spruce top, maple back and sides. Original pickguard is black with a "C" motif until 1950.
H1301 - Cremona cutaway (1954) - Acoustic archtop - Sunburst
Later Cremona model with cutaway - carved spruce top, maple back and sides - neck with genuine mother-of-pearl large inlays
H1302 - Cremona II (1938-1944) - Acoustic archtop - Brown sunburst
Spruce top, mahogany back and sides - Same model number H1302 later used on a all blonde spruce/maple Cremona (1954)
H1302 - Cremona cutaway (1954) - Acoustic archtop - Blonde natural
Later Cremona cutaway model, blonde companion of the H1301 - carved spruce top, maple back and sides - neck with genuine mother-of-pearl large inlays - Not to be confused with non-cutaway 40's sunburst H1302 "Cremona II".
H1304 - Cremona IV (1935-1940) - Acoustic archtop - Brown sunburst
Carved spruce top, maple back and sides. 16"1/2 wide but it looks like prewar model were narrower, 15"1/2.
H1305 - Cremona V (1935-1939) - Acoustic archtop - Sunburst
Early Cremona, spruce carved top, maple body, perloid fretboard with alternate contrasting engraved frets
H1306 - Cremona VI (1935-1951) - Acoustic archtop - Brown sunburst
Engraved tortoise celluloid headpiece. Carved spruce top, maple back and sides. It looks like older models had abalone bindings on body, narrower headstock, split block fretmarkers. Some (1935) were produced with gray perloid fretboard and headstock (as was the H1305). During wartime they had wooden pickguard and tailpiece, and downgraded tuners, because of the lack of metal at the time.
H1307 - Cremona VII (1935-1951) - Acoustic archtop - Wine red shaded
Top of the Cremona line, carved spruce top, flamed maple back and sides. Wooden tailpiece and pickguard, downgraded tuners during wartime, because of the lack of metal at the time. One is seen with different shaped "straight" f-holes. Early models (thirties) have a narrower, tortoise engraved headstock, and "stars" fret markers.
H1308 - Cremona (1940) - Acoustic archtop - Blonde
Blonde version of the H1307 Cremona - Top of the Cremona line, carved spruce top, maple back and sides
H1315 - Cremona - Acoustic archtop - Sunburst
I did not found this model in the catalogs yet, but it looks like a model produced during wartime, because of its wooden tailpiece. It has a pressed, not carved top.
H1463 - Cremona - Acoustic archtop - Sunburst
Carved spruce top, maple back and sides. "Straight" f-holes. The one pictured (thanks to JP) originally had a wooden tailpiece (indicates a wartime model).
H1663 - Cremona tenor (1935) - Sunburst
Tenor guitar, 23 inch scale. Arched top. White celluloid bindings, black pickguard. H1263 Cremona is the 6 string version.
