1969 Harmony Sovereign H1260 X-braced Conversion (#220) SOLD
Factory fresh hard shell case is optional - add $100 (our cost)
Back was removed, braces removed, new braces installed.
Neck is excellent. Action is 4/64 at the 12th fret.
Structurally speaking, this is in excellent condition.
Neck was reset.
This is yet another in a series of great sounding large bodied brace conversions. Exceptional sound. Considering age,
this guitar is in great shape.
We pay attention to fine details. The inside back and sides are cleaned up and sanded smooth.
We chip out all of the glue globs. Braces are tapered and sanded smooth. Serial numbers (if any) are preserved.
Back braces are rounded and sanded smooth. We use a drill press with reamer and press guide to install new
solid metal bushings and modern tuners. We do what Harmony should have done 50 years ago.
