This is a decent acoustic, and so far a very good price.

Wow, did you do that yourself? If so, did you use heat or steam, or just pressure? Keen to know more as I have an old acoustic that also needs its neck straightening...

I used a heat gun very carefully so as not to get any one spot too hot & then clamped it overnight. I left a very small relief curve in it to avoid fret buzz.

I have a Harmony H167 I may sell, neck was reset about 10 years ago by Mr Glyn for $350, spruce over birch but the most highly figured birch back I have ever seen, the chatoyance is almost quilted maple like. Around 1969 vintage. Really mellow tone, just a great picker and strummer.

It is the one on the right, I'll get some better pics tomorrow if interested. Would be looking for around $500.

Ooooooooo....... nice! Get that one!
When they're playable, I can't recommend these old Harmonys enough.
