    1967 HARMONY H22 BASS GUITAR
    • All original including OHSC!
    • Bass is in excellent condition for its age and sounds even better (I tried to capture any minor blemishes)
      • The bass does have a little wear on the back of the neck, back of body, and one ding by the knobs)
    • The bass was set up a in April 2021 by the master, Phil Jacoby.
      • New strings - Fender NOS 45-95 round wounds
      • Low action with no buzzing frets
      • Truss adjustment - Phil drilled out a little of the cavity to access the nut better
      • Pots - no issues
      • Jack - no issues.
    All in all, just a great example of 60's craftsmanship.
    A really slick bass for any collection.

    Please ask any/all questions here or call/text 4438032318.

    Asking $2,000 or best offer.

    Thanks!
    Justin

    I had a 1963 H-22 that I sold during financially hard times. Never should have gotten rid of it! Yours is in great shape! These basses sound huge!

    Oh man. I've wanted one of these SO BADLY every since I heard John Stirratt using one on the NPR TinyDesk with Wilco. It's like an UBER-P Flatwound sound.

    DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO if you don't want to fall in love with the tone!

    I watched - it reignited my love for Jon Stirratt and Wilco.
    He's a killer play with such great feel, tone, and taste in licks.
    I'm tempted to keep it, but I'm itching for an old J (similar to his 65), so this has to go.

    My first bass back in the late 60’s. Those gold foil pickups sound huge!:thumbsup:

    That’s the H22 reissue, not the original like this beauty. Tuners and the glossy finish are giveaways. :rolleyes:

    I saw he recently sold the reissue on Reverb when Wilco let a bunch of gear go.

    Harmony through a Noble DI.
    Nothing too exciting here, but a quick demo.
    Would love to redo this with better fills and timing, but you'll get the point.

    I started life as a drummer, but I got better
    Mine is in the back closet, bought used in the fall of 1966-- not near that pretty though, I was a fifteen-year-old dumbass-- that's gorgeous

    Really getting my Stirratt on now with the 66 Hofner Club.
    "Handshake Drugs" style.
    Just need an old Jazz now... anyone want to trade one?
    Also, open to blackline SVT's and 60's B15's.
