This patriotic-themed flat top is one of THE classic pieces of fretted Americana, and a surprisingly good-sounding instrument to boot! When Buck Owens appeared on TV's HEE HAW in 1969 with a red, white, and blue flat top guitar built for him by Semie Moseley, it seemed like an obvious idea to sell them. Buck was never one to miss a marketing opportunity, after all. A licensing deal was struck between Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Buck, and the actual guitars were built by Harmony in Chicago for sale in the retailer's catalog.
