SOLD

Up for consideration is a 1938 Harmony / Royal Crest archtop guitar, a high-end, 1930s Golden-Era model, featuring a hand-carved Spruce top and a hand-carved Mahogany back. This is a fantastic hand-made archtop guitar with beautiful full-range tone, excellent volume and projectipon, along with nice, low action. 1930s Gibsons, even the low-end models like the L50 currently sell for $1,500. Here is a great opportunity to get a arguably better guitar with hand-carved top and back, and still save $750!!!
