    When you feel like you need an acoustic archtop even though you don't play jazz (but might be interested in Gypsy Jazz) and want something vintage. For your viewing pleasure a 1962 Silvertone 612 (made in Chicago by Harmony). Silvertone 612.jpg

    Nice!!! Enjoy! I've always had a soft spot for archtops even though I don't play a lick of jazz.

    Good for some swampy blues. Makes me want to play at a certain crossroads.

    Bought a Harmony just like it at a flea market in Harrison, Arkansas. Left it hanging on the living room wall of my ranch when I sold the ranch. It was a nice wall hanger.

    Vintage archtops are beautiful guitars.
