    I bought an archtop Harmony 8 years ago from eBay US for 200 shipped. I even managed to escape the usual import duty - the only time I ever have. Wish I had kept it now that I see how prices have increased.

    I would be tempted if it didn't have a big lump of filler in just about the most noticeable place!

    I have seen this one before, seems like a lot of money when you read about the condition? ($2800)

    Man, tenor guitars with banjo tuners make me weak in the knees.

    IMHO, the bridge looks to me like a replacement - it's a lot of bridge for that guitar, and I think it would have been a floating bridge originally. Doesn't matter, because I am not bidding on it, I am NOT bidding on it ...
