    I had to stop by the Pawn shop on the way home and so this Harmony Strat copy and it looked complete and all original. This thing still has the original Flat wound strings. Plugged into the Mark V amp and had some nice tones coming out. It has a date stamp on neck and body 1974. The year I graduated High School.:)

    Nice! Sears catalog type stuff there (I’m not saying that’s bad) the musical instrument section was always the first thing I looked at when we got a new catalog. I’ve seen those marked as “Kay”, Memphis, Lotus, etc. The million layer laminate necks are usually pretty stable. What’s the bridge look like under the ashtray?

    What! a 74 strat that didnt copy a fender headstock?..
    What were they thinking?.. :D
    Looks like a piece of bent metal for the block.. how does this thing sound compared to a solid block?..
    I think your right though,, a perfect candidate for slide..

    Yeah, wickedtools, very cool and nostalgic .....I used to sneer at these, back in the day,because you could actually get a Fender for a couple hundred bucks...even with inflation, it was do-able.......

    Now is that neck multi-lam, or just a primitive imitation of a Kiwi job????...Har, Har...that's a joke, son......I remember, the one or two piece maple necks were pretty good, kinda thick, I think..(fretboard to skunk stripe, thick, I mean)...Very Cool score................willhowl;)

    My first electric guitar was one of these. Probably around the same year model. I bought it from a friend my senior year in highschool. Sold me the guitar and a Peavy amp. Pawned both for $50 about 3 years later to feed my family. The pawn broker said he'd buy them both for $80 but I was determined to come back for them. Never could. I was putting myself through college with a wife and a kid and never came up with the money.

    I couldn't play that guitar at all. Didn't know a chord, but I'd pick at it make up my own music. I knew I'd learn how some day. Almost 20 years later, I learned how to play and now I own "too many" guitars. Lol

    Thanks for the memory buddy. Enjoy it!

    Hey! We graduated in different schools together! Class of 74 baby!

    Nice guitar too. I think the Harmony's were cool a pretty decent quality.
