Harmony Guitars Silhouette, Rebel and Jupiter  ·  Source: Harmony Guitars

The Harmony Guitars company was founded in 1892 and they built guitars and amplifiers. In 1975 the company was sold and closed. It has come back in various guises throughout the years but is now back from the land of the dead with three new models for 2019.

Harmony Guitars

The Harmony Guitars brand name now belongs to BandLab Technologies (as well as Cakewalk and Teisco) from Singapore. And there are three new electric guitar models inspired by three old models from the company’s back catalogue. Each model is built in Kalamazoo Michigan USA.

Harmony Silhouette

This offset is definitely an eye-catcher and comes with a body finished in nitro lacquer, a maple C-profile neck with an ebony fingerboard that has a 12 “radius and 25” scale. The Harmony Silhouette comes loaded with a pair of Gold Foil Mini humbuckers with orange drop capacitors.

It has a basic vintage style bridge with three barrels, simple but effective. If you are looking for a Fender Jazzmaster alternative without the tremolo, you might find it here with the new Silhouette.

RRP – USD 1299 including MONO Vertical case.

Harmony Rebel

The Harmony Rebel is almost entirely made of mahogany and with a 12 “radius ebony fretboard.  It has a 25 “scale C-neck neck loaded with 22 frets and again a set of the Gold Foil Humbuckers. It also has the same vintage style bridge with three barrels, similar to a cut-down Telecaster style bridge plate.

RRP – USD 1299 includingMONO Vertical case.

Last up is the new Jupiter which is slightly narrower than a Les Paul and has a single cut design. Again, you get a mahogany body with a  C-Profile mahogany neck that has a  12 ” radius Ebony fretboard loaded with 22 Medium Jumbo frets.

It has exactly the same Gold Foil Pickups and bridge as the previous two models,

RRP – USD 1299 including MONO Vertical  case.

Retro Styles

All the guitars are pretty retro in style and have a similar ethos to the newly re-launched Supro guitars from recent years. I’m surprised that they took so long to get the Harmony brand back into production, as the old vintage guitars have a loyal fanbase.

You can check out the official demo video below of the newly revitalised Harmony Guitars models. I don’t think the price is particularly cheap on any of these new models, but they do include a case, so at least you don’t have to search out an oddly shaped case for your new vintage-inspired guitar!
