The pre-war guitars, through the 40's, had clubbier necks. Some of the Archtops had a bigger paddle like headstock similar to the evolution of Gretsch Guitars.
Along with manufactures like Kay and Regal, Harmony supplied a lot of instruments over the years.
I have had many other type of instruments made by Harmony.
At this time they were America's only large-scale violin manufacture.
After giving up violin making for 19 years they began again in 1938 to fill the need of the student violinists.
The guitars in my store at that time were mostly Harmony made, and I would spend hours looking through Jobber catalogues at these guitars. This most expensive guitar Grandpa Dave stocked, a whole $ 80, always caught my eye.
At one point, before WWII, there were 57 assorted names on the same Harmony instrument.
Wholesalers and private labels would use these guitars as a part of their line.
