Palm Beach

Just had mine brought back to life. My Dad bought it new by mail order in the mid 1940's and it was always around the house while I grew up. I think the model is Supertone, and they were built by Harmony/Stella for Sears. Best guess about the materials are birch back and sides with a maple top. What the luthier found amazing is that it hadn't disintegrated over the years. The neck could still stand a reset but it sounds and plays great, just nice to have an old familiar sound around the house again. Do a search for Supertone palm beach guitar and you might still find one that Elderly Music had for sale a while back.

Cheers,
-Eli.

Palm Beach Guitar

Im a little late for this i see, but i also have a palm beach guitar. I got it when my grandfather passed away. Its an old black wooden guitar and has palm beach written on it with a picture of a hawaiian beach/trees/hula girl

I cant find any picture of any guitar like it online.

Being in canada, the sears comment makes some sense though i guess

Re: Palm Beach Guitar

Hi thar!
I have a Palm Beach Model Guitar, and I understand that it dates back to the mid 40's.
My Serial Number is 4591H928, so I'm thinking that these were made for mass distribution in Canada by Sears, Eatons, or the Bay.
If you find anything more about these, I'd love to know.
Regards!
Bert.
