Harmony sovereign h1260 dating site eset nod32 problems updating
A bit less sustain than your average Martin dreadnought, but a great power, punch and clarity. Overall, a great vintage sound that is quite unique.
String spacing is a generous 57 mm from E to E, wide enough to easily fingerpick.
The pickguard is a super pretty tortoise celluloid material, nicely beveled. The rosette is a simple one, much like Martin style 18 of the era. They say the neck is “Slim Line” but it’s actually a pretty fat neck, very reminiscent of the typical 1950′ Gibson rounded profile, only wider at the nut (44mm). The pickguard material leads me to think it was made in the early to mid 1960′, as by 1968 or 1969 they switched to black pickguards.
The binding is more elaborate, like Martin style 28 of the era. The sound of this ladder braced jumbo might be the best thing about it.
Even a new-old stock guitar feels like playing a rubber band. Therefore, all vintage Harmony guitars will have undesirable high action. So why not buy a Harmony that is now built correctly?
THE WARRANTY SECTION No warranty is expressed or implied concerning the guitar finish and/or appearance. It is pretty much impossible to re-apply back binding so as to look completely perfect.
