  • Vintage Silvertone?????????

    Hi Everyone, I'm trying to date my old Silvertone I found in the back of my closet. From what I read,I think it's a coral between 67/69 "amp in case" model. The serial number is a 4 digit number and based on that it looks to be 1966 but I don't think they started making these till later, but I could be wrong. Either way this guitar plays and sounds awesome. I put a shim in the neck and set it up and it plays way better than I thought it would and it Sounds even better. Anyone have any idea's on date please let me know! Thanks

    Man that thing is just classic. It looks to be one of the ones made by Harmony but they usually have Dearmonds not lipsticks. I have a 60's Harmony H-19 that has been severely modded with a bigsby, toaster pickups, gotoh tuners and a schaller roller bridge that sounds like no other electric you ever heard. I also used to have a bobcat or silhouette that looked a little like that one (body shape) that I regret selling. Never had the slightest clue how you would date one however.

    Take off the pickguard; there is probably a date stampted on the back of it:
