Assuming that the staff aren’t trading punches over this vintage Harmony Rocket 1P H53, you too can go to the shop and try it out. Built between 1959 and 1967, the H53 is the kind of guitar that the Wunjos team get a bit feisty about, and there are many reasons for this. Aside from being some of the ice-coldest guitars ever made, Hamony’s always have a certain something that you can’t find in other instruments, and even though there’s a lot of these in the world - Harmony made a lot of guitars - those who have them tend to keep them. Luckily for you, Brian is really into these, so we tend to see quite a few. This one has seen some action, with a number of scrapes being visible all over the body, but it’s worth remembering that this guitar, even if it was from the last year of production, would still be 52 years old, and if you look at people who are 52 years old, they’ll likely also possess a few scrapes. Built around a hollow laminated Maple body, the H53 has a Maple neck topped with a Rosewood fingerboard, and as this one is all original, the headstock is furnished with a full compliment of closed-gear 3-in-a-line tuners to keep you right. At the body end, there’s a wooden bridge and trapeze tailpiece very much redolent of the time, but the bit everyone’s really interested in is that single DeArmond Gold-Foil pickup, wired through the fabulously ‘50s-looking radio knobs for the master Volume and Tone. These pickups can be pushed incredibly hard, yielding a living, breathing tone that sparkles with character, and taking to dirt like an extra-keen duck to water. A really keen duck. Protected by a three-year warranty with our quacking techs, this vintage Harmony Rocket 1P H53 is available at Wunjos with a hard case as standard.
