I didn't know who Roy Smeck was until I bought a bunch of parts from 2 Harmony Roy Smeck lapsteels a while back. Born in 1900, Smeck, who was known as the Wizard of Strings died in 1994. He was known for his skills on guitar, lapsteel, banjo, and ukulele. He was even inducted into the Ukulele Hall of Fame.
It seems he had a long affiliation with Harmony and was even somewhat of an inventor. Many Harmony products bear his name.
This H73 is one of those products. I like the profile of this hollow, 2 pickup electric. It has an ample cutaway and an upper bout that is slightly reminiscent of a telecaster's curves.
It looks to be in great shape and comes with the original case.
The seller is looking for trades, something interesting or unusual.
