Harmony H76

Semi-acoustic electric guitar

The Harmony H76 was one of the very best semi-acoustic guitars built by the Chicago manufacturer, and production continued right into the 1970s. For this reason it appeared in a lot of vintage Harmony adverts, see below. The H76 was a three pickup guitar, with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece and block neck inlays and sunburst finish; the same model with redburst finish is the Harmony H78. Without the Bigsby vibrato, the model designations are Harmony H75 (sunburst) and, Harmony H77 (redburst).
