Harmony Silhouette

What's Hot

Just watched a video on these bad boys as it came up on my YouTube feed, loving the look and the idea of mini humbuckers, could be a decent alternative to a Novo

    I wanna try these, badly - apparently Coda has had them on order for forever but allegedly Harmony can't keep up/isn't fully ramped up yet at all (and I'm sure Covid didn't help!)

    If you like the look/feel of Novo but not the price then check out our own Fidelity guitars here in the UK too. With the exception of their entry level Lite models, their regular stuff is priced about midway between Novo and where I expect the Harmony stuff will end up, but they are excellent retro-futuristic guitars...https://www.fidelity-guitars.co.uk

    They're not available in the UK. I contacted them last year and they said "soon".

    I've been sold on a Jupiter for a while but getting your hands on one is a different matter, the tones on the demo are mesmerising.

    That gets a wis from me, I played a couple of Fidelitys at the last Newmarket show and was really, really, really impressed - the “Lite” series are tempting me a lot even in the absence of the bespoke metalwork...


    Don't ask me, I just play the damned thing...

    I have one of their earlier production guitars (double standard), and it is great.

    Ive got one of these, really want some gold foils to replace the mini humbuckers, but they are a weird size so don't know what to do, Gets you pretty close on a budget though.

    Tried one of these the other day. They are seriously great guitars. Feel, tone, style, for me they have it all...

    Had a go on a mate's Silhouette and Jupiter- bought from Andertons, I guess the first lot they got in. Both fantastic guitars , the Silhouette had a great attack to it, kind of Tele- like with a bit more body to it. Very nice necks on them too, I want to try a Comet!

    Love the look and sound of the silhouette. Isn’t there a cheap Silvertone with the same body and Bigsby style trem?
    I have one of the fidelity lites and it’s a beauty.
    I think this is mine before it was sent out to me.

    Similar!

    https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Silvertone-1478-Electric-Guitar-Red-Sunburst/1BHN (with kudos for using an actual licensed Bigsby and not some clone)

    Kauer used to make one too, the Arcturus, for obviously loads more than both of those, but he’s discontinued it now for whatever reasons.

    That sounds fabulous! They’re in stock at Andertons and reasonably priced considering the quality. Must resist…
