This is a vintage 100% all original 1967 Harmony No. H72 semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 4010, happens to be in excellent cosmetic condition! Considered one of the cooler and more advanced late-60’s Harmony models, the H72 would make a great addition to any collection.
Serial Number: 4010
Body Date Stamp: F-67 (Fall 1967)
Pickup Date Stamp: SEP 5 1967
Weight: 6 lbs 2 oz
This ’67 Harmony H72 features: a bound laminated maple top, the original rich burgundy nitrocellulose finish, bound laminated maple back and sides, maple neck with a bound rosewood fingerboard and block inlays, (2) Golden Tone “Mustache” DeArmond pickups, rosewood adjustable bridge, deluxe German-made nickel tailpiece, open back straight-line Kluson tuning machines, and the original soft case.
As mentioned, this guitar is in excellent all original condition with no issues (NO cracks, NO breaks, NO repairs) whatsoever. However, there is evidence of an inevitable seam separation on the back of the headstock, although the guitar remains in perfect structural shape. This is a common issue for similar models, and merely presents a cosmetic distraction more so than a physical defect. This non-Vibrato (without the Bigsby) model, actually stays in tune much better than the “upgraded” version with a Bigsby.
The pickups present classic DeArmond tone, and the build quality overall is very substantial and more refined than your average Rocket or similar model. Definitely amongst the last of the great U.S.A.-made Harmony guitars, the H72 is a hidden treasure an an imminent classic.
Whether you’re looking for a cool and tasty studio treat, a super unique live sound, or a conversation piece to show off in your music room, the H72 will certainly deliver.
