Based on a fairly simple construction design & marketed as an affordable catalog guitar, these old Harmony Rockets have always been fun to play, and over the years have managed to find their way back into the hands of a variety of players. This H53 model features one single coil pickup in a fully hollow body with a chunky maple neck - pretty straight forward & to the point. It resonates well & offers a cool, vintage tone.
