The Harmony Silhouette series made its debut in 1963 with a distinctive body shape and configuration. These guitars were designed to enter the competitive arena against Fender's newer Jazzmaster and Jaguar. St. Vincent is one of the more notable guitarists to have played an H15V, but this model would appeal to all those Jack White and Black Keys fans. This is mainly thanks to the DeArmond-designed gold-foil pickups, which are often worth as much as the guitar itself!

As for its condition, there's no question that this guitar has had its fair share of bumps and bruises, all of which can be clearly seen in our photographs. Despite the cosmetic issues, this is a really fun guitar to play. The large U-shaped neck feels very comfortable, the 24.5" scale makes it enjoyable to move around the neck, the action sits at a nice 0.08" on both sides, the vibrato with the roller bridge has a satisfying tension and sounds great, the tuning stability is a solid 7.5 out of 10, and the pickups deliver a robust output.
