1967 Silvertone 1453 (Harmony H82 Rebel) in Memphis TN or $400

The Silvertone 1453 is less common than the Harmony Rebel model it is based on and it is a better find because it has regular Vol and Tone knobs vs the quaint (but annoying) sliders on the Rebel. It also has much better pickups - these "X-faced" DeArmonds are strong and bright and punchy - about 10K output vs the 7K of a DeArmond Mustache pup which gives them a more vicious biting howl like the Valco made Airlines of the same period. These poorly designed top-mount Trem bridges totally suck so forget about using the vibrato arm on these but they still hold a tuning.
