1956 SILVERTONE H61 ELECTRIC ARCHTOP GUITAR

Here is the single pickup version of the H62 we featured earlier. Topped off with the stylish 50’s Silvertone logo, this Harmony made for Sears- Roebuck H61 features the hot P-13 single coil pickup mounted in fake tortoise in the neck position. Built in Chicago in the fall of 1956, this seasoned instrument is equally ready to scat jazz or sing the blues and with a recent neck reset maintaining the original fretwire, the action and playability are excellent.Check out the three part f-holes! I have replaced the speed knob upgrade shown in the photo with the correct brown bakelite tone and volume controls. This guitar is ready to play!

Stop in and check it out. Call us at 415.255.0618 or email Kevin with any questions.

Welcome

While Fender and Gibson are the most iconic American guitars today, the real dream guitars carry more humble names like Kay, Harmony, Silvertone and Old Kraftsman. These catalog guitars of the '50s an '60s are the guitars of our dreams, and our store is the place where those dreams come true!
