Late 1960’s Harmony H64 Meteor
Summary: The Harmony Meteor was an attempt to capture
some of the Gibson ES model success in the 1960’s. This instrument has wonderful binding & a
beautiful vintage sunburst finish.
Body: Double cutaway semi-hollow with really
beautiful segmented fully bound f-holes and a fully bound top & back.
Neck: Bolt on maple neck with a bound
rosewood fingerboard, original tuning keys, pearloid dot inlays and original
truss rod cover. Scale length- 24 ¼ Nut
Width- 1 ¾”
Pickups/Hardware: 2 "enlarged mustache" pickups,
Bigsby vibrato unit, pearloid dot inlays, 20 frets, original tuning keys with
white buttons, floating bridge with adjustable saddles, 3 way toggle switch, 2
volumes and 2 tones.
Cosmetics: There are some small cracks in the binding on
the neck around the fret ends as well as a crack in the side of the treble side
that seems stable (see pics). The back also
has a few dings. There is a fair amount
of nicks and scratches around the body, consistent with a well-played but well-kept
instrument. It looks really nice
considering its age.
Playability: We put a new set of 10’s on this vintage guitar & it plays really
well – the action is low & the bridge can be adjusted to fit the player
Weight: 6 lbs, 6 oz.
Case: This vintage Harmony will ship in an
aftermarket Epiphone hard shell case.
