Ok So I got a new guitar. A Samick made Silvertone reissue. Some people brought back the name Silvertone. Got Samick to make them. They made semi hollow 335 style guitars, LP styles, bass guitars etc.. They reissued the Jupitor, the offset and 3 Danelectro style all made of Mahogany. 3 mahogany Danelectro styles they are so cool. But sadly they were not wanted or popular. Why? Because Harmony made Siilvertone. And Sears once owned them. And the Sears connection with the guitars. One guy said on the Stratocaster Silvertone copy it was junk. Why? Because he thought it was. One of my dream guitars is a orginal Jupitor. And the offset and a few others. But I'm not paying a 1000 dollars. The Orginal was a cheap semi hollow with a wooden bridge. And Silverfoil DArmond pickups. The other stores besides Sears them with amber controle knobs and gold foils. But not woth the price they sell for used. But really cool and the blender switch is like the old Rickenbackers that had the blender option it is worth the look by all guitar players. So I went to my local guitar shop. I saw the Samick reissue. Clearly not wanted. Not made in a few years. The designers behind the original twin-pickup 1423 likely used Gibson’s Les Paul Jr. as a point of departure. And at a glance, the new 1423 looks like a straightforward reissue. It’s got the same single-cutaway body as the original with a sharp-looking black sparkle finish and white binding with a fine black pinstripe. A white, foxtail-shaped pickguard is home to five black knobs and a chicken-head selector switch. The rosewood fretboard is dressed with classy block inlays and the classic, slight, and snaky Silvertone script logo adorns the headstock. It has a mahogany body. Thin body. Might be thinner than the orginial? Darmond pickups recreated by the family. Not the normal Semore Duncan pickups. Mine was the limited edition. Plastic still on the pickups. Must have not been played but very few times. Sparkle body flashy. A chicken head knob. And the blender switch optionin the midle postion. Being semi-hollow, examples of the original 1423 fall in the vicinity of five pounds, but my reissue is more substantial at seven pounds, 14 ounces. It’s still very comfortable to hold and feels compact and well balanced. The neck has a very comfortable C shape.Gibson players in particular will feel very much at home with it, particularly given the 1 11/16" wide nut and 24.75" scale length.The controls on the 1423 include volume and tone for each pickup, a 3-way selector switch, and, for the middle position only, an almost Rickenbacker-like blend knob that rolls off the highs and boosts the mids. The knobs fall in a straight line—blend, volume, tone, volume, tone. The guitar shop worker really liked it. One worker gigs around and he ownes a orginial Harmony. He loved it. It came with a nice padded gig bag that said Silvrtone. And my guitar rocks. A payment was put on the guitar. 1 more payment and she is mine. It will be paid off this month. Here is so example pictures I found online.
