Description

If you love Silvertones this is for you. Here is the top of the line model 1367. This guitar features solid maple top, sides, and back. The guitar is fairly clean, but needs a little work.
Here is the lowdown. I got this beauty from the original owner. He played it around the house, and it sat in its case most of the time. The good is that it's clean and beautiful.
The guitar does need a good going over. The road bump pickups have very low outputs, and measure open. They need rewind or replace. Luckily these are cheap and available.
A pair is around 150 to 175 used. The guitar has a small section on the cutaway where the binding and side are unglued. It's an easy fix( and not needed but for purist fix it)
Lastly the frets and action are good as is the neck, but it has a high fret around the 14 th fret that makes it fret out when playing around the 12th-13th fret.
I believe the pickguard is not original, and it's funky.
This guitar with working pups and as it sits would easily be 1000 on the bay.
I've seen them for as much as 2400. It's a killer and pretty as the pics show.
Steal this one for$750.00 shipped.
A little love and you have a very collectible and rare guitar.
It's that nice!!!
Will ship in an old hard shipboard case.
