1940s Harmony Patrician

Background: A very nice sounding example in good condition. No body cracks or internal separation. Came with a tall and heavy archtop bridge. Needed a neck reset and general conditioning.

Repairs: Extensive cleaning and finish refurbishing, while maintaining its original patina. New adjustable archtop bridge from Katalox avoided a neck reset, and restored a more vibrant sound. Mild top restoration – pickwear and nicks repaired with Caramel shellac and transtints where deeper damage was evident. Tuners disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, with shafts now supported by hard fiber shims in the headstock. Complete setup. Great sounding archtop from the 40s!
