Vintage 1960 Harmony Roy Smeck Grand Concert model made for Montgomery Ward in wonderful condition.
Unlike many Harmonys,all the details are there and very clear : Serial No.4627 Model No. H 7030 and F-60 made in the USA,denoting Fall 1960.

Neck heel to body joint absolutely solid,neck dead straight (more later on this),fret block markers clear and bright.

Dimensions: nut width 1 7/8'', fretboard length 17'',upper bout 11 1/2'',lower bout 15'',body depth just under 4'',action (low E) at the 12th fret 10/64'',scale length 25 3/8''.

This guitar was a mirror of the famous Harmony H 162,which ha
