This is a (Harmony) Stella H928 Acoustic Guitar from the mid-late 50's. It's a small bodied guitar, with all solid birch construction. This was my dad's guitar that was given to me as boy, but I never learned to play until I was about 18. I hauled this thing around with me for many years in non-playable condition. The back panel had pulled away from the sides and was quite warped (fairly common with these guitars I hear), three of the braces had fallen off (one of which was lost), and the neck was warped and in need of a reset. I had a friend of mine here in Maryland fix her up for me. He reset the neck, reattached the back and braces (& added a new brace) and scalloped the top braces, dressed the frets, and painted a matching black faux binding onto the back. This thing sounds better than I ever would've imagined.... a truly vintage, bluesy sound. I even still have the original brown cloth case.
