Guitar makers have advertised in music magazines such as Down Beat, Guitar Player and very many more. Some manufacturers advertised widely (Guild, Gibson, Fender) but many more didn't and adverts are few and far between. Here are some of my favourite ads out of the ones i've seen. You can browse through all the images from the category links above, or by manufacturer from the links below.

Harmony H-804 w / Upgraded Parts

HIGHLAND, NEW YORK, 12528, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$130

Sad to let this one go, it's a really fun little guitar Harmony H804s were cheap student guitars, I believe this one was made in Japan some time in the 1970s. On this one I've had the tuners upgraded to Grover locking tuners and the bridge replaced with a tune-o-matic style bridge, so it can actually be set up (the stock bridge did not have adjustable saddles). I still have the old parts and can include them if you'd like While this doesn't have the craftsmanship of a higher-priced American ... more

Lisa Davis Comment left 5th December 2014 07:07:05 reply
I have come across a guitar amp made by Sears and Roebuck & co. It is solid state, 2 channel, third channel has reverb, strength, and speed. It says 500 watt max on the max on the back.Patent # 40-14232. It has 10 or 12 inch speakers in the cabinet. It is a matching set, head and speaker cabinet. I am wondering how old it is and if it is of any value? Please respond as early as you possibly can. Thank you so much! It is also all in working order.
