I have an old Barclay guitar that I got for my birthday as a child and have been lucky enough to keep it through the years, and have recently took interest in learning to play guitar from a friend. I have discovered that 1 of the pegs on the neck that adjust the strings is missing and was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to get used parts for this model guitar. Thanks for the info.

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

more than likely many were imported from japan and distributed by harmony just like they distributed other american guitars made such as danelectro under their own name. barclay is still a prevelent name in Japan infact they still sell new ones at a store called deodeo. I have a barclay JV strat that is real wood (not ply) and plays well. the electronics are very cheap as it is a budget brand.

Stella/Harmony/Kay/Silvertone : they all exited different doors of the same factory in Chicago. Barclays were sold at W T Grant department stores. Good American stuff.

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

Check the Harmony Database site: http://harmony.demont.net/modele.php?id=. The "59" is the year 1959 manufactured. "S" I've been told may be the month of September. Should be another serial number 4 digits, letter then 2-3 more digits. Example: My Barclay is S-68 1616H53 meaning made in Sept 1968, and copied the Harmony H53 Rocket- looks identical. Lots of great pics there. Maybe one will resemble yours! Good luck.

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

Barclay guitars are simply re badged Harmony guitars, they made a model which was identical to yhe harmony meteor. Dont know much about the acoustics, but they seem to be quite cool old 60s aprox guitars. Hope this helps.

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

What I have found it was sold new at Grant Dept. store, and is a vintage collectors item today. I will gladly email some pictures if anyone is interested. thanks

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

i have one too!! can't find a damn thing on it it just says Barclay USA, no #...anyone kno anything about it??!

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

i had always been told the barclays were made and sold by someone like montgomery wards or sears...but i've found info recently saying that they were actually made by harmony. sounds reasonable too, and maybe they were just sold at montgomery wards or sears or where ever.

sincerely,
age

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

I also have a barclay guitar from the 60's, i really need to know how much it is worth?

Re: Old Barclay USA Guitar

my first guitar was an old barclay acoustic. it had "f-holes" instead of the usual center hole, and a lovely sunburst finish. i sold it when i was young and dumb (and broke). i'm trying to find another one...any help or leads would be HIGHLY appreciated! or would anyone like to sell theirs (if it's similar)?

please get ahold of me with any info... sonsofhypnos@hotmail.com

THANK YOU!

sincerely,
