1959 Silvertone Stratotone
THE GUITARCHIVE – This 1959 Silvertone Stratotone is in excellent condition. It has your normal wear of an old guitar (see pics), but no cracks or breaks or repairs. It plays great. All switches, controls, and pickups are in great condition (surprisingly great!) and work as intended with no noise. The pots date 1959. Neck is straight and feels awesome. It’s a chunky C shape. Frets are good with plenty of life left, no buzzing or dead spots.
Bridge is not original (considered an upgrade). Overall great shape. Could be for a collector or an every day player and primary gigging guitar. Hard to find them in this great of condition. Especially the electronics. Some people will tear these apart and sell those electronics for a pretty penny. We can’t bring ourselves to do that 🙂
You can demo instruments like this at The Local Pickup guitar showroom in Rock Hill, SC (Charlotte, NC).
