Thread Name: Harmony Guitar
Subject: RE: Harmony Guitar
Just before I got out of the Air Force in '73 the base exchange got a load of Harmony guitars in, classical style with nylon strings. They had a row of about 50 set up for display. "Yeah, I'll bet" I thought. I walked down the row plucking every other one's strings. Dull thuds mostly some had a little tone but then I hit one that just rang! What?!! I tuned it up and thought "Wow somebody made a mistake! A real guitar!" I bought it for $70. no tax and I've been playing it ever since. The tone has just improved over the years. My son grew up with it but plays nothing but electric these days. I hope he appreciates it by the time he inherits it.
