The Harptone Manufacturing Corporation was founded in 1893 in the USA, as a maker of musical instrument cases and accessories. In 1924, Harptone began the production and distribution of guitars, banjos, mandolins and tiples and continued until 1942. During the war years though, all musical instrument making was discontinued and production diverted to the war effort.
In 1966 after exstensive market research Harptone decided to resume guitar manufacturing. They aimed to produce professional grade American made guitars at attractive prices. They produced Acoustic and semi hollow bodied guitars and bases until 1975 under Luthier Sam Koontz.
