  • Barclay Acoustic Guitar (made in USA)?

    So I came across a Barclay Acoustic Guitar on a website. Is this some sort of a vintage guitar. For $100, is it something really worth? No clue about these guitars. I would like to purchase if it has great tone.

    Any idea on the model? Perhaps made by Harmony:

    Could have pretty good tone, but probably ladder braced, so it may not have the tone you're used to.

      Yes, Barclays were a dept. store/mail order brand built (primarily) by Harmony, although a few were Kays.

        A Barclay acoustic was the first guitar I ever owned (1973?). It might have been an 1143. Awful guitar.
