30’s and 40’s Harmony’s represent some of the best values in the vintage archtop world. This beautiful example was sold through the Sears Roebuck company under the moniker Royal Crest; one of the top-tier Harmony archtops available at that time. The tortoiseshell style pickguard and headstock overlay alongside the pearl block inlays make this a more ornate archtop than many Catalog brands were offering, and with a great playing neck and 15″ body, this guitar delivers the dry, loud projection associated with much more expensive archtops. If you’re looking for a great playing archtop with tons of mojo, this 30’s Royal Crest is the perfect choice. EXC w/HSC $1,000.
