Harmony Patrician Model Arch Top Acoustic Guitar (1961), made in Chicago, natural finish, mahogany back, sides and neck; spruce top, rosewood fingerboard, black chipboard case.
Overall length is 40 1/2 in. (102.9 cm.), 15 7/8 in. (40.3 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 3 7/16 in. (8.7 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 25 in. (635 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/4 in. (44 mm.).

This is a very nice example of this mid-line Harmony Patrician archtop, one of the all-time great "Campfire guitars". The neck has been neatly reset and the frets crowned so this one plays better than it ever did when new. There are a couple of repaired grain cracks to the solid spruce top and some dings and dents to the finish, but overall this is a pretty clean, all original guitar. It actually sounds quite good too -- it won't replace anyone's L-5, but it is a very nice "knockaround" acoustic archtop, and would amplify well with a floating pickup if desired. Excellent - Condition.
