Harmony gave different model designations for different components, and even different finish options. For example, the Harmony three-pickup semi acoustic range comprised numerous models: the Harmony H75, Harmony H76, Harmony H77, and Harmony H78 were all effectively the same guitar; three DeArmond pickups, block neck inlays, and identical controls. The H75 and H76 were sunburst, the H77 and H78 redburst. The H75 and H77 came with a harp tailpiece, whilst the H76 and H78 were equipped with a Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece.
