There were more models not imported into the US than were imported. Some of them made it here from people travelling, others through eBay or other online selling serviceS. They’re rare and sometimes more interesting than the imported models.

No New Posts Harmony

My new obsession are the lowly Harmony acoustic guitars. Millions where made, most have fallen apart and where discarded years ago. But I recently found people are converting them from Ladder bracing to X bracing, many of them rivaling vintage Martin's.
