Here’s one of the coolest guitars of the 60s in a hip finish! The Silvertone S1446 was made by Harmony and sold in Sears catalogs back in the day. Chris Isaak famously used one in his early days and even named his 1st record “Silvertone”. Hubert Sumlin also used one when playing with Howling Wolf. A really cool guitar in terms of looks but it also has some sweet tone. Hollow body with F holes for warm sounds. The bound rosewood fingerboard features pearloid block inlays. The real party is the pickups. These guitars came with Gibson built mini humbuckers. These pickups are basically the same as what you would find on an Epiphone of the period. Good sounding with nice highs and mids. The Bigsby is newer and the tuners have been upgraded with a set of Kluson copies (no new holes). This one sports a cool amateur white refinish. It’s very, very hip looking. Not a perfect refin but still good looking. A really cool guitar for the bucks! The parts alone are worth a good bit!

Unlike many examples, this Silvertone actually plays well. The neck is comfortable, the frets still have some life in them and the pickups sound good. Everything works as it should. Condition wise, this one has seen some use. It shows signs of the refin as well as average scratches, dents and dings. There’s a few paint chips at the headstock around the tuners and a few on the body. No big deal for the player and definitely a cool vibe. Comes in an Ibanez hardshell case.

There’s a lot of cool guitars out there but it’s sometimes hard to find one that’s truly unique. This Silvertone has personality in spades and is just begging to be taken on stage. Cool looks and cool tones, how could you ask for more?
