How unbelievably cool! A real-deal, 1950s, American-made smaller electric guitar that turns out to be just perfect for slide. All-original and nice and clean too, plug it in and it takes off. Original way-cool De Armond pickup, smooth concentric volume and tone controls, and a tone bypass switch that actually works. This thing jumps! And when you see those great mid-century graphics on the peghead saying Harmony Stratotone NEWPORT you’ll know for a fact that you’re the coolest guy on the block. And it’s still got its original decal on the back of the peghead from the store that sold it new, says "Metro Sound Music Co. Richmond, VA”. How cool is that???  Nice fat neck, straight saddle compensation so essential for slide, and an action that's right up there to give you all the room you’ll ever need to slide all over the place to your heart's content. Never messed with, never beat on, in beautiful condition from stem to stern. Lovingly kept for years and given to me by a world-famous jazz musician who’s not a guitar player but loves guitars nonetheless, and will remain anonymous. Comes with its original very hip tan chipboard case too, the perfect outfit. Offered here for way less than a whole buncha them out there that have had the hell beat out of 'em. Only $1195 w/ossc
