Vintage Harmony 0-size 12-fret in X- braced spruce/birch, 1 3/4" nut, 2 3/8" string spacing, nice sustain for fingerstyle

062920A

Mid-century Harmonys don’t disappoint and this example is no exception. Some favor flat picking, some favor strumming but this one favors bare fingerstyle play with its nice sustain and low action. Completely rebuilt for modern play, I’ve left plenty of saddle showing for adjustment in the future.

60s Harmony 0-size 12-fret in ladder braced spruce/birch, 1 3/4" nut, 2 3/8" string spacing, great parlor for fingerstyle blues

062920B

The 0-size 12-fret are the workhorse standard in the working man’s vintage parlor collection. This workhorse enjoys fingerstyle blues, with or without a pick. The ladder braced spruce top adds some depth to an otherwise plain tonal spectrum.
It’s also a good value for an American made acoustic from this period.

Mid-century Harmony 0-size 12-fret in ladder braced spruce/birch, 1 13/16" nut, 2 3/8" string spacing, generous string spacing top and bottom for the fingerstyle blues player

062920C

It’s unusual to find a wide nut and string spacing at the saddle on an affordable rebuilt parlor guitar but times are crazy, so there you are. This guitar came out of the box nice and tight, which means it can handle some heavier handed play. Flatpick tone is very vibrant.

1940s “RANGER” Harmony 000-size, 14-fret in ladder braced solid birch all around, 1 3/4" nut, 2 3/8" string spacing, Grandaddy of old cowboy guitars!

051120B

Peel away the cowboy stencil and these old catalog guitars sold through Sears, Monty Wards and Eaton Department Stores in Canada were well made instruments that have stood the test of time. This example was made for the Canadian market and was extremely well kept for a 70+ year old acoustic. It’s been completely updated on the inside while preserving the vintage vibe on the outside. This particular model is illustrated on page 165 of Evans and Middlebrook’s book, “COWBOY GUITARS”.

Bed-pandemic Style A Shitar, Shop-built 13-fret in white enamel over metal, 1 3/4" nut, 2 1/4" string spacing, Fishman pickup and pre-amp included

051120C

This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands. I had the neck. I had the bedpan. I had the Fishman pickup. I had the vision. It has absolutely no acoustic voice at all(think silent guitar) but plays and sounds like any other guitar plugged in. The passive under saddle comes with a Fishman pre-amp so you’ll only need to supply the amplifier. If you playing sitting down, I’ll also include a vintage strap to help keep the darn thing on your lap. If you’ve been looking for something to remind you of 2020 global pandemic, this might be just the thing.

Shop built deep body 0-size, 12-fret in X-braced spruce/rosewood, 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing, easy on the eyes, ears and fingers

092519E

It’s been awhile since offering up fresh shop built 0-size, 12-fret. I took this opportunity to compose a deep body version and added some Ablam accents to the mix. This guitar is a full 1" fatter at the lower bout than its conventional 0-size cousins. Other than the “C” shaped neck profile, there’s nothing much conventional about this parlor guitar. Guitars twice its size will have a hard time keeping up with its voice despite having a lower bout that only measures 13 1/8".
