What are the various woods?
Thanks for your help.

As I understand it, the model is the 177.
F70 references the date it was made- February of 1970.
The back and sides are mahogany and the top is spruce. The 177 had a wooden rosette as opposed to a sticker so it was a better model.
I have no actual experience with a 177 but have read about them.
Hope thatís helpful.

Default H177,F70

Thank you for the info on the H177. Still seeking specs on it. Does anyone know the type of spruce or the mahogany used at that time?

Sorry, the F actually stands for Fall. That guitar was made in the fall of 1970.
There was once a functional data base for old Harmony guitars (harmony.demont.net) but just recently it has become non-functioning.
It had lots of useful information- like the 177 was made from solid woods- but nothing so specific as to the source of the woods or their actual species.
Someone on the forum may know. I suspect what was used varied significantly as to what was readily available.
