70's HARMONY STELLA H6128 Made in USA Rare Model Parlor Guitar AC114
HARMONY STELLA H6128 Made in USA
Acoustic Parlor Guitar Nice sound, blues like. A really clean and
extremely well playing Harmony Stella Model H6128.These are very well made and
strong. Laminated woods so they are indestructible.
(1972-1975) - Acoustic flatop - Natural
Seventies version of the H927 - Two different versions : late models use laminated woods, have a faux spruce grained top, an all plastic adjustable bridge, and dots instead of "H" painted markers on the fretboard. The logo name on the head changed from "Stella" to "Harmony" on later versions. Late models wears the Stella name only on the label inside. H6130 is the same model in sunburst finish. Given that this one has the Harmony on the Headstock and the faux spruce top, we are calling it a 1975 or one of the last years. The plastic bridge and pickguard are still with it. Even the original nut and tuners are still present. I don’t think this guitar had very much play in its life. Check those frets. Almost new!!
The guitar sounds really nice. Nice punchy tone with plenty of volume. Not muddy sounding at all. A good chording guitar for singing along with it. However, if you want to play some hot licks on it, you will be shocked at the great action on this guitar.
