"I estamate that Harptone produced about 2500 guitars between 1967 and 1975. I can't back this for there are no surving records from Harptone or any of the companies that contrated with them. All of them are gone and most of the people involved…"

"Thanks for starting the group Kim. The 300 number is the apx numbers of acoustic guitars and basses, simi hollowbodiy guitars and basses, and archtops that Harptone produced for the Standel Amp Co. in 1967/8. Dating is easy. If the label says…"

Yeah. The market has been really slow for the last 4 years. One major problem is there are so few of them that there is no real collectors market for them. I've seen a lot sit forever on Gbase.com at $1000+. The current market price for the acoustics are around $300 to $800 depending on condiction.

Hi Kim;

 

Glad it's sounding good, I bet it does. I like the headstock on it, it's really looking good with the strings and work you've put in to it.

 

I have a 40 year Grammer my self that I really like, I bought it in 1978, it was made in 1970.

Hey there Kim;

 

Wanted to welcome you the Small Body Guitar group.

 

I love the pictures of the Standel, just curious, are you going to restore it?

 

Thanks;

Gary
