We are OFFERING a Harmony Vintage Sovereign H1203 Western Special Acoustic Flattop Guitar

This is a Harmony Sovereign Western Special guitar.  It is the model H1203.  Spruce sound board with mahogany neck back and sides. This was one of Harmony's high end acoustic guitars. It is also one of the earlier models probably early 1950 due to it having no pick guard.  The high end Harmonys had a two part truss rod in it as this one does.    

The guitar will probably need some setups although it comes to you in good condition.  It has players wear on the body and some scratches but they are not from abuse.    This guitar is history and it is a senior citizen since it is about 65 years old.  It comes with the original chipboard case from what we can determine.

We said earlier that this was the Grand Concert model but it is actually the Western Special model.  this is a guitar that was coveted by many of the Early Blues greats.

"Western special". Pinless style bridge. Older models (pre 1956 ?) had a different, rounded "figure eight" body - No pickguard on early years - Barclay branded version wears H1203-3 model number. Not to be confused with the lower end H162 (check this model number). The H162 has a simple ply binding around body, H1203 has multi-plies binding around body, better woods on the top and a double rosette around soundhole.
