Silvertone 1420L in Albuquerque NM for $499

Here is a seller offering a very nice looking all original Silvertone 1420L at a decent price.  This version is one of the most desirable models of the Harmony "Stratotone" line since it has the original "Hershey Bar" pickups that sound great.   This particular example looks very clean and well preserved.  Nice guitar.

This is an early 1960s Silvertone model 1420L Stratotone dual-pickup electric guitar, made in USA by

Harmony of Chicago, Illinois. The lightweight hollow body is a single-cutaway style

similar to a Les Paul model, and is completely bound with ivory-white binding. Neck is straight with 20 clean,

undamaged frets, and has dot inlays in the fretboard. Headstock has all original

fully functioning open-gear tuners, and the white Silvertone script is still very clear. Playing

action is low and easy with an adjustable bridge in place. The two pickups are single-coil type,

providing authentic 1950s sound, each with its own set of tone and volume controls. A

sliding three-position selector switch offers the player the options of using the more

treble-sounding neck pickup, the deeper-sounding bridge pickup, or both together for the

loudest, and most twangy sounds. Pickup plates, string pegs on tuners, and tailpiece are

chrome. This particular model instrument was featured in the 1961 Sears catalog.

The guitar's tuxedo style shows in the white pickguard surrounded by, and in contrast with, the

larger area of black body finish, and also contrasting with the black control knobs and

switch tip, making it visually similar to a man's formal black-tie tuxedo suit.

This guitar is in excellent original condition which is exceptional, considering it is now more

than 50 years old. There are very few nicks and only superficial scratches or edge wear from

having been played. Everything on this instrument is very clean and in fully working condition,

and is priced at just a fraction of what is comparable elsewhere. Original hard case included.

Now only $499 cash or best reasonable offer, serious offers only.

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.
