From Three- to Four-Part Harmony

As readers know, I recently condensed all of my old Harmony harp guitar blogs into one long PDF article. Soon afterward (January, 2020), a fellow alerted us to another via Facebook. He inherited it from a great-grandfather, though sadly, there is no other known provenance.

Unlike the other two fancy, near-identical specimens, this one’s a plain herringbone trim model. The tailpiece for the neck strings is of course a later addition.

And while I think this is the fourth one (of the eight) that has come to light, it’s actually only the third we have an image of (and know where it is).

My updated article now includes this specimen (was hoping for better photos, but this will have to do for now).

    I am considering building a tenor uke version on this. Thanks for the added pics of these.
