Silvertone Thin Twin - Jimmy Reed 1382L - Mid 1950's

Product Description

OMG I've wanted one of these forever and here one is in the shop... but on the racks it goes.

The 1382 was manufactured by Kay in Chicago but rebranded for distribution through the Sears catalog in 1953. The Thin Twin name came from the look of the two thin blade single coil pickups which have a unique twang but can also be EQd to sound fat and warm and anywhere in between. These were endorsed by the great Jimmy Reed in the mid 50s. There are even photos of Bob Dylan using one among others. 

This one is a beauty. The neck is perfect and it plays smooth and fast. The early models didn't have steel reinforced necks, so the necks were huge. I've heard them being described as double bass necks. This one is the steel reinforced slim neck, still chunky but much more comfortable.

There is the odd bit of wear that you would expect from an instrument of this vintage but frankly, it's in damn fine shape and has had a loved life to this day. These are getting pretty rare and collectable.

Comes with a really great case.
