Silvertone 1457 at Swap Meet in Peoria IL for $180

This is a pretty decent looking Silvertone 1457 for the price.  Hopefully the pickups both work - that switch is definitely shot - that's how they break, the throw arm seperates from the switch - I had the same problem on mine and found a cheap Chinese Replacement at Radio Shack that works just fine.  Note that those are ON-OFF-ON SPDT swtiches - so the standard Gibson type pickup switches do not work.

1960's Silvertone 2 "Lipstick" pickup electric guitar. Has metallic finish, double cutaway. Guitar is in fair condition and will need some repairs. Very collectible!!!

Located at A-Z Swap Inc. 414 SW Adams St. Peoria, Illinois 61602 ( 309-637-4531 ) Please mention you're calling about an item on Craigslist. Thanks


  1. Hope it needs only minor repairs, Interesting Metallic finish, which i liked the most.

  2. That metal specked finish is the standard finish on these old Silvertones - it is made u0p of real metal flakes mixed with the finish - and in the more heavily used models the metal flakes will be worn away in the heavily played areas.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
