Product Description
Harmony Vintage Meteor H 71Specifications:
From the first year of production, this 1958 Blonde beauty is an under rated guitar.
It sound great, plays beautifully and is in stunning condition.
These guitars have a character of their own.
A resonant acoustic quality when amplified, due to the two great-sounding DeArmond "Golden Indox" pickups (introduced with this model). This Meteor is a very good sounding instrument. The laminated maple body is 15 3/4" wide and 2" deep at the rim with a single rounded cutaway and a laminated spruce top trimmed with subtly fancy 5-ply binding. The Meteor is wired to the scheme Gibson developed in the early 1950's: tone and volume knobs for each pickup and a single toggle for selection.

The Meteor has a very cool Rock'n'Roll history.  Keith Richards' first "serious" guitar was a sunburst H70, which saw extensive use on all the Stones' early records (including their landmark first album), first tours and TV appearances. Lead guitarist Dave Davies cut The Kinks' "You Really Got Me" in July 1964 with his natural-finish Meteor-the scraping, drivingly distorted tone he achieved remains uniquely arresting even today. Davies bought the Meteor-his first "real" guitar- reportedly before the Kinks even had a permanent name. The guitar was popular with many bands both in the UK and US in the 1960's and is still a solid performer today, one Harmony's all-time best designs.
Excellent + condition.
