After some digging, I’ve been able to identify my Dad’s old guitar. It turns out that it is a 1961 Harmony Archtone Mod. H1213, Acoustic arch top – Brown sunburst.
What you see to the left isn’t the actual guitar, but the exact same model.
I remember him practicing / attempting Segovia and Romero licks in the family room, with his head surrounded by Sir Walter Raleigh pipe smoke. What a memory.
My next step will be to get it to a local luthier for a complete restoration. No reason it shouldn’t live on another 40 years. Heh, then I’ll have time to learn how to play it.
Plus a bunch of others.
