Hey guys, I came across this beautiful Harmony Rocket-plays beautifully, straight neck, DeArmonds sound amazing. I'd love to find a pickguard for it as the pup wires are exposed-any ideas on where to find one?
Also any way to put a date on this one..it says FL-59JW
thanks for your help:smilie_flagge17:

cool gtr Chris ! I have a stratatone with those exact pu's, those d'earmond pu' are loud and proud, nothing quite sounds like those d'earmond pu's ! , good luck in finding an old pickguard, probably cheaper than having one made .

Thanks laristotle! Yep it's definitely an H-54
I like the cherry finish on yours!:smile:
Thanks mon. Like I said, it's not mine but looks identical.
Like ssdeluxe mentions, I've been thinking of making
my own PG. I cut down a cherry tree 2 yrs back and I think
it may be dry enough to cut a slice out of it. The only thing
I don't like about the guitar is the narrow neck. But yeah,
the sound is definitely unique compared to the rest of
my collection.

Harmony Rocket pickguard

Hi

sorry to come in so late. I bought my Rocket in 1967. The screws on the pickguard kept coming loose with the vibration of playing. In the end, I ran out of replacement screws and patience and just left off the pickguard. I think it looks better with the 2 f holes showing, even with the wiring, than with the white pickguard (which scratched with playing marks like black pencil), so I left it off. I kept it safe with the bracket, but wasn't thinking of resale to collectors in those days, I just never got rid of stuff.
