1940's-50's RARE BILTMORE HERALD HARMONY GUITAR!

For auction please find this Vintage Guitar from Harmony called BILTMORE HERALD..I took this 40" long guitar to Jerry's Music in Bethesda Maryland for some information on it, and they were most helpful, though t isn't much on the net about this most likely RARE instrument. What we found is that says the value for this guitar could be as high as $375! And we found it is a Harmony, made by Sears & Roebuck...However, while the Biltmore Herald is very clearly written, I couldn't find the Harmony name on this guitar. Looks as if the pick guard is faux tortoise shell which does definitely give it some age.........probably the 40's. In decent condition, with some scratches and a small hole on the side. Jerry's Music told me it looked in decent shape Musically...(not sure what that means) But I strummed a bit and it sounded pretty darn good to me. But then I know NOTHING about Musical Instruments. Please email with questions and I'll try to answer them. I FOUND 3530 STAMPED IN BLACK INSIDE THE GUITAR! BEST OF LUCK! PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NEARLY 4 LBS AND WILL BE SHIPPED IN AN OVERSIZED BOX. THE SHIPPING FEE LISTED MAY WELL CHANGE DEPENDING UPON GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION OF WINNING BIDDER. I'm out of town 7-15/7-26 with limited computer access. If you ... read more
