Sears offered a range of guitars in every catalog, and the 615 held the 'middle' position in the line. When it was retired in 1967, there were two flat tops on the down side price and feature wise, and two above it.

The 615 was built by Harmony, and introduced in late 1963. It remained a popular mid-range guitar throughout its five-year lifespan; by the time it was retired it was advertised as "our most popular full size birch Flat Top."
Budget features like painted fret markers were coupled with the fancier look and durability of a floating bridge and tailpiece for a versatile, good looking guitar.
Still widely available on the auction and secondhand market, this strummer remains popular.
Introduced: Fall/Winter 1963
