What makes this guitar special:  Ultra cool vintage vibe with a gorgeous flame maple body.  The H-78 has gained a tremendous amount of popularity lately due to it being one of Dan Auerbach's main go-to guitars.  If you like the sound of the Black Keys this may very well be the guitar for you.  DeArmond has been making legendary pickups since the 1930's & this trio of gold foil single coils delivers unbelievably dynamic tones - a sure fire hit for any guitar aficionado.  Professionally set up by us with fresh strings & low action, this beauty plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition:  Great shape overall - various minor nicks & dings; surface scratches & mild finish checking.  The high E tuner is unoriginal; the D & G tuners are slightly bent, but function perfectly.

Neck:  Chunky maple neck with ivoroid binding & black side-dots.  Beautiful dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlays.  Original frets show some wear, but have plenty of play in them.  4-ply tortoise headstock overlay with Harmony By Heath logo.  Open-back tuners are in good working condition.  1 3/4" nut width; 24 1/4" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body:  Hollow, flame maple body with dual F-holes.  Original Bigsby tremolo tailpiece with floating rosewood bridge.  4-ply tortoise pickguard is in great shape with no cracks or breaks.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 6 oz.

Pickups:  Original DeArmond gold foil single coils.  Bridge - 10.20K ohms; Middle - 9.52K ohms; Neck - 9.63K ohms.  Each pickup has its own 2-way on/off switch along with individual volume & tone controls.  All electronics are in perfect working condition.
