Pending completing full description details and photos on this guitar, the photos of the similar 1956 H950 Monterey I recently restored are included for illustration of the guitar model....these were taken before that guitar was restored.

NOTE: Temporary website problems at the moment are preventing uploading of the main photo image on Page 1, which will be added as soon as this issue is resolved.
Description
Stock Number: VTG1551.

The Harmony Guitars Database entry for this H950T tenor version of the iconic Monterey archtop is pretty sparse, but the 6-string version had one of the longest production runs in the history of USA guitar-making, for 34 years from 1938 to 1972, and I previously believed that the tenor version was made from around 1950 onwards, but have now found reference to a 1948 example. The H950 inside ink stamp model identification is clearly visible, but the usual similar, but smaller date stamp is not. However, the low height of the fingerboard above the body confirms this as an earlier date model....certainly earlier than the last one I of the same I recently restored, which had a raised fingerboard extension & the usual Harmony date stamp, reading S-56, clearly visible in that one, indicating that the guitar was made in one of the 1956 production runs.

For further details on the model, please see the sold listings on page 8, and the Harmony Guitars Database on the link below.
