KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN; July 29, 2021 – Harmony (harmony.co), the world’s most cherished maker of musical instruments, today announced the launch of the Harmony Silhouette with Bigsby, shipping globally in August. Proudly made in the USA, the guitar is loaded with all of the features that define the Silhouette, now with an added Bigsby B5 Vibrato for endless tonal possibilities.

Building on the success of the Silhouette, Harmony listened to their community who called for even more versatility. Enter the Harmony Silhouette with Bigsby, the perfect addition to the guitar’s sought-after style and sound. Featuring the same unique body shape, premium tonewoods, proprietary gold foil mini-humbuckers and custom hardware, the added Bigsby B5 Vibrato melds distinctive tones from the Silhouette with expressive vibrato from the Bigsby. The model is available in Burgundy, Slate and Space Black color options.

“The Silhouette has seen incredible reception and demand from around the world and we’ve received so many requests to add a vibrato option to the model,” Gerald Hooper, AVP Global Channel Sales shares. “The Bigsby B5 is the perfect choice, a vibrato system iconic for its smooth action and tasteful pitch-bending capabilities, it complements the Silhouette perfectly and brings the playing experience to a whole new level.”

Harmony invited Patrick Breen (video here) and Horace Bray (video here), both artists who have played and admire the classic Silhouette, to experience the magic of the added Bigsby Vibrato to the guitar ahead of its launch.

The Harmony Silhouette with Bigsby is shipping in August, available at $1,549 (US MAP) via select dealers. For more information, head to harmony.co or follow us on IG/FB at @harmonyguitars.
