Cosmetic Condition: There is a finish chip by the bridge and some light dings and scratches but the top on this Silvertone is looking great for the age! The sides have some light edge wear and the back has some buckle rash and light scratching. The neck is mostly smooth with a ding or to and there are some dings around the edges of the headstock. This Silvertone is a rad vintage piece that won’t break the bank!

Cosmetic Condition:This Harmony H47 Stratatone Mercury is pretty unique. The body is in good shape with very little wear on the top. The back and sides have some small scratches. The neck has many nicks and dents and the headstock shows some checking lines and edgewear. This Harmony has good vibes.
Playability: This guitar plays with medium/high action due to neck warp. The truss rod is minimally adjustable.
