Hey All

I found this today at a thrift store. It needs a ton of work but it's kinda neat. Not much info online but it looks like it's a 50s Harmony. Anyone know more?

Thanks

Yes, a Harmony. Here's what it would have looked like new. Pretty sweet.

Which is very similar to my '64 Harmony Monterey, which has the same strange but appealing burst and a truss rod.

It does look like a Monterey H-1325. There should be a date stamp starting with an "F" or "S" inside the guitar. The Steel Reinforced Neck/Made in the USA on the headstock though indicates the guitar is no earlier than around 1959/60.
