Harmony guitars

Tym guitars is now stocking Harmony guitars.
Harmony was at one time the production king of American instruments, and during it’s heyday it accounted for over half the guitars built in this country each year. In 1892 Wilhelm J. F. Schultz purchased a two-room loft on the top floor of the Edison Building at Washington and Market Streets, later the site of Chicago’s Civic Opera House. He and four employees began production on a modest scale; the first Transaction was the sale of two guitars in 1892 to the Chicago Music Company. Schultz’s business grew fast and boasted 40 employees by 1894. In 1904 Schultz and crew settled into their own three-story, 30,000 square foot plant at 1738-1754 North Lawndale Avenue. A new wing was added in 1906 and by 1915 Harmony had a quarter of a million dollars in annual sales and 125 employees.

Today, Harmony Guitars is owned by President Charlie Subecz. In 2008, Charlie decided the time was right to bring back the old Harmonys by re-launching a series of Vintage Re-issues. Fourteen meticulas recreations from the 1950's and 60's, including the Rocket, Bobkat, Meteor and more along with a signature Ritchie Valens classic.
Since 1892, The Harmony Guitar Company continues to keep a tradition of fine quality guitars.
We have these and others in stock now at Tym guitars. Contact us for more info and prices.
