Maybe it is just me but I find something magical about these pre-1957 hourglass shaped Harmony guitars. This one is a 1942 H165. For whatever reason Harmony chose to market the first H-165s as Stellas even using the old Oscar Schmidt style underlined logo. As far as is known, this is the earliest surviving example of one of these. A 1 3/4" nut and, 2 5/16" string spacing at the bridge make it one heck of a fingerpicker. Topping it off is a big fat V neck and Kluson bent tab peened tuners (Harmony entered in a deal with Kluson in 1941). Like all H165s that would follow it has the pinless bridge and rounded top and back edges. In pretty nice shape with about the only real problem being it has is a bit too much of a belly which will be dealt with in due course. I will then take it from there. What I appreciate about these guitars is that there is an immediateness to them. If you want a guitar that is rich with overtones/harmonics and will ring out till Kingdom Come these are not going to be your cup of tea. But if you want a guitar that gives you one big note and then gets out of its own way these are just what the doctor ordered.
