Here is a very nice example of an early 30's Harmony arch top guitar.  This one has been kept in the case for most of it's life and is in playable and well maintained condition.  I have included a snapshot of the markings inside the body on the bass side f-hole.  Based on my search to identify this guitar has led me to believe it is a 1934 Harmony archtop made in the USA for Montgomery Wards catalog.  There are no markings on the slotted headstock.  If you find this to be incorrect you can research the markings inside the body and decide for yourself the identity of this vintage archtop.  I have done some cleaning and restrung the guitar and it stays in tune and plays nicely.  It appears to be have the original tuners and buttons they are marked as "Guitar Prod. Inc, Cleveland, Ohio Pat.Pending".  This comes with a era chipboard case with leather handle but not sure if was original to guitar and is in good shape for it's age.  I have tried to give photos that show it's very nice condition.  The front and back have no separation from the sides and the neck joint has no cracks or separation from the body.  There is a hairline crack about 3" long on the lower bout on the treble side of the tailpiece and does not show well in the pictures.  That is the only notable crack and does not appear to separate at the edge of the body.  The head stock has some finish missing along the edges from normal wear.  The neck and fingerboard are in good condition and the fret wires show little wear, there is some wear on the back of the neck especially behind the first couple of frets (see pic).  The painted binding is in fair shape and shows the wear you would expect from a 75+ year old guitar.  The pick guard appears to be original from pictures I have seen of this model.   It is unusual to find most of these entry level archtops in this condition and I will offer returns if you don't agree with my assessment.  If you are intersted in vintage Harmony guitars and want one that most collectors won't have this one is for you!!   I am going to start bidding at $99.00 and let bidders decide on what it sells for.   Shipping will be $25.00.   Thanks for bidding.
