To say that Fender is the best known and most successful of all the guitar companies would probably be correct.
From its beginnings in Leo's radio and record store in Fullerton, California, to the Fender Musical Instrument Corporation of the 1990's, Fender instruments seem to be rated in terms of their historical value or relationship to the past as seen in their reissue models.
Wider headstock generally appears from December 1965. In addition to these, a medium size headstock was used on special models (The Strat, Walnut Strat and Gold Stratocaster) in early 80's.

In the Harmony world, the interested buyer is often rarer than the guitar itself.The first part of the serial number has no precise meaning relative to the date of production.It seems Harmony reset these numbers in every batch of the model, so a "6690H22" can be older than a "123H22" for example.They were made on the same assembly line at the factory, and of course the body was the same before routing the holes.Misprints are especially common for popular models, as the Rocket electrics (H53/H54/H56/H59), or the Archtone acouctic archtops (H1213/H1214/H1215).
It looks like Harmony serial and date stamps were meant to manage the different parts and instruments on the production line, not to be used as reference by collectors 50 years later... - My brother has a Harmony Meteor in great shape but the the serial number is 84H8448. Do you think someone added the Meteor Label on the Headstock? - These stamped numbers inside Harmony made guitars were not intended as real serial numbers.
