Harmony Guitars

Harmony was founded in 1895 in Chicago and are mostly remembered for their entry level guitars of the 1950s and 1960s.

Their early instruments can be easily confused with instruments by Regal and Lyon & Healy By the late 1930s their archtop acoustic guitars had many features that they would retain through the 1960s. harmony was purchased by the Sears and Roebuck Co. in 1916, and Harmony was the manufacturer of the Sears and Silvertone brand instruments.

They also sold instruments to a huge number of outside brands as well. A feature of Harmony guitars and lap steels in the 50s and 60s featured Gibson-designed P13 pickups, although the instruments were not manufactured by Gibson. In 1975 Harmony ceased production. Heads up to the fact that recent Harmony brand imports have no relation to the original Harmony company.
