The Harmony H54 Rocket is a hollow body electric guitar from the 1960's and spilling over into the early 70's. These guitars were made in the USA, and although there are some slight differences in models throughout the years, more or less they are pretty consistent. I don't know the exact year of the model that I've used, as a band member on a recent session brought the guitar in. The guitar has two single coil pick up each with their own independent tone and volume knobs. It also has a standard three way pick up selector for choosing between or blending the different pick ups. I don't know what kinds of materials this guitar is made from, but overall it definitely seems well built considering it's age.

UTILIZATION

The feel of the Harmony H54 Rocket is definitely pretty unique. It's got a wide sized neck with a good amount of space on it, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your personal preference. I personally found it a pretty easy guitar to play, but I didn't get to mess with it for too long since I wasn't playing on the session and was the assistant engineer. However, the player on the session didn't seem to have much trouble at all getting a killer sound from it!

SOUNDS

The sound of the Harmony H54 Rocket is definitely impressive, as this is a great guitar for getting that classic hollow body sound, which is a sound that I adore. It's a bit more versatile however, as you can also get some more raunchy sort of sounds from it that aren't really possible with too many of the other hollow bodies that I've used before. It's not the thickest sounding guitar on account that it has single coils, but that's the kind of sound most people are going to be looking for anyway with a hollow body.

OVERALL OPINION

I'm not sure how easy or hard it would be to get your hands on a used Harmony H54 Rocket, but I would think that if you were determined you could get one without too much trouble. I'm a big fan of Harmony hollow body guitars, as I think they made some of the best from this time period, and the H54 Rocket is a great example of this. If you can scoop one of these up for a reasonable price it's definitely worth it as this is a great hollow body guitar.
