1960's Harmony Sovereign H1203 Project Acoustic Guitar. This guitar just needs it's neck reset and bridge re-glue finished. I let my friend Kerry Char (professional luthier and instrument repair man - Char Lutheries) use this as a demonstration instrument in a guitar repair class, and I am just ready to move on from the project. Work was done very well, no blushing, minimal tear out of any wood. Original tuners, 95% fret life. Aside from a couple dings and scratches it's in pretty nice shape. These are great little guitars that have a bright punchy tone and attack. Great for blues picking or gypsy jazz in my opinion. American Made in mid to late 60s. Comes with original case.
