Dating harmony sovereign guitar hinduism dating beliefs
Are there any other markings on the guitar that may identify a model number? In your case "9457H7047", the model number should be "H 7047", of which I do not have a listing for.
All Harmony models that I have listings for begin with the letter "H" and are followed by 2, 3, or 4 additional numbers.
Regards, kcbuck Frank: Based upon the pictures this Tenor guitar may be the "Harmony HTG 1201 Tenor Guitar". Cond: 0.00 to 0.00 USDThe list listed MSRP for this model back in the day is .50 USD.
Maybe the glue ( hide glue) came loose while the guitarwas stored in too hot temperature conditions. Using light gauge and tuning in DADGAD ( lower tension) combined withhumifier in the soundhole, the belly at the bride started to sink. I think that you should DEFINITELY get the bridge reglued, and considera new bridge patch as well.
Would I risk to take the bolts off ( after removing the strings), andrestringing carefully after checking the bridge fixation? Cripes, it might be worth it to do what Mike Dotson on MIMForum did a while ago - he took an old Harmony 1203,took the top off, thicknessed it, and rebuilt it with X-bracing. I've done that to a 1260 and it was verygood afterwards...I have seen many Harmony guitars with bolts (as well as glue) holdingthe bridge down, and am certain that the factory did this on someexamples.
