    No one wants them. Silvertone by Samick made 3 No one wants them. Harmony tried 3 times to make a come back no one wants them. Jay Turser remakes 2 of them. Not popular. Eastwoods are not great either.:(

    A guitar player at a cork sniffing page said everyone loved them and the orginials. Really? I do but sadly most do not. And did not want or like the gold foils. I think the orginals with a proper set up are great and as good as any expensice. Sadly most do not. And never knew what a set up was in the 1960's? :confused:

    SwampYankee in post 16 was correct - there was a (another) recent attempt to resurrect the Harmony brand... they did try to get a 'Vibe' feel to them, although I did notice that their 'Jupiter' was not a short scale like the original - like this one, in fact - which is mine. A 1960 Stratotone Jupiter H49 hollowbody.

    My first guitar was a Harmony model H80 or something like that. If I come across one just like it for under a hundred bucks I'm interested, for nostalgia. Buying new just doesn't have any interest for me.
