Check out this latest consignment we accepted. A vintage 1960s Harmony Sovereign Deluxe Jumbo H-1265 Acoustic Guitar. This guitar is in good condition. Neck angle and frets are fine. Cosmetically the guitar is used but not abused. There is normal playing wear with nicks and marks about the body. One noticeable tiny gouge in the wood on the lower bout. Typical spider checking and crazing on the finish. Minor pick guard lifting beneath the strings. Neck is straight. Never had a neck reset and plays great with no string buzzing or dead spots. Actually sounds amazing! Take it for a test strum at my office in Danbury, CT. Includes the original case. Opinions, specs and history about this rare model in the following paragraphs:

The Sovereign Deluxe Jumbo H-1265 was Harmony's flagship model, made only in 1967 and 1968 in Chicago. It is the most ornate of the Sovereigns. But more importantly it is the best Harmoney flat top we’ve ever heard.

Features include a beautiful solid Sitka spruce top and a solid, one-piece Honduran mahogany back and mahogany sides, with a bound Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. A large eagle shaped Brazilian Rosewood bridge, large pearl block position markers, 25" scale length with a 16-1/4" body, bindings on top and back, rosette at sound hole, mahogany neck, Waverly Deluxe single tuning machines and adjustable truss rod. It has the original large offset tortoiseshell pickguards with metal Harmony logo, tortoiseshell headstock overlay and truss rod cover.

The iconic Harmony Sovereign Jumbo has been a favorite of song writers and recording artists for almost 60 years, used by many greats from Jimmy Page to Ryan Adams for its huge sound and incredible note definition.

From an article quoting Jimmy Page regarding his Harmony H1260:

“I’ve lent my Harmony six-string acoustic, that guitar I had way back in the early Sixties and it was with me all the way through to the point that I used it as a writing tool,” Page says, “And that particular guitar is the vehicle whereby the first album, Led Zeppelin, is written, the second album is written, the third album is written and the fourth album is written. And it’s the guitar that actually culminates in playing ‘Stairway to Heaven.’
