Guy brings in an old case. Guy: Hey, bet you don't know what this is! [opens moldy case] Vid: Moldy, Harmony.....H22? [it's missing the pickguard, threw me for a second] G: Yes! Pretty rare huh? This is the 13th one ever made! V: You don't see too many, but guys worship them because they sound like an upright bass. They re-issued them last year. G: Really???? V: Yeah. Not a perfect replica, but it kinda, sorta is a H22..... at least from the upper balcony, 15th row. G: Well, I need a fret level. V: Buddy, this thing does not have any frets at all. I've got to level down to the deepest valley here, and that does not even leave tinfoil behind. G: I think you are wrong there, the guy who sold it told me his luthier said it has "plenty of meat for another leveling". V: Better send it to his luthier, because in my 40 years, it can't be done. [15 uncomfortable seconds of silence passes] G: I just want to keep it all original. Even these strings are the original strings. V: I hear ya. I'm the first one to stop someone from ruining a classic guitar by doing unnecessary repairs. See these divots on the back of the strings? Those are wearing the frets out faster too, cuz they are sharp. G: Yeah, I noticed that. But still: original strings! V: I might gently suggest you put the original strings in a heat sealed bag, and play with a new set, on some new frets. G: Do people do that? V: All the time. We've got a heat sealer machine just for people like you. G: [nodding] OK, OK, I can maybe see that.
