Silvertone 1969 1460L "Double Pickup' Hollow Body

Product Description

Here we have a rare Japanese made Sears catalogue Silvertone from 1969. This model was simply called the 'Double Pickup' model and according to research was only made for one year due to a fledging guitar market. A lot of the Japanese guitar factories were starting to close down around this time. 

This guitar was an interesting model as it has the 'Gretsch' style narrow neck pocket where the top of the neck 'floats' over the guitar. These neck pockets were really snug and shows how good the Japanese craftsmanship of the time was. It also has a raised metal Silvertone badge instead of the decal or the more typical small solid badge, again showing a bit more attention to detail. 

Anyway, as for this particular guitar... when it arrived the electronics were shot and the frets were almost non-existent. So its had a re-fret, a new switchcraft 3-way switch,  and CTS pots fitted with vintage USSR made oil K40Y9 capacitors which sound amazing. The neck pickup is warm and punchy and the bridge pickup has a real twang to it. This guitar plays really nicely now and would be a nice addition to any collection.
