Silvertone 1446 "Chris Isaak" in San Pedro CA for $850

This seller is offering a Silvertone1446 for the relatively sane price of $850.  I've seen these go for a good bit more so it should be a nice deal.  These have fairly thin necks for Harmony made guitars so if that is what you like - and you want some of the sexy cache that this guitar embodies - you might want to take a look.

Doesn't include a case but that is not too big of a deal - these fit in most ES-335 type cases, only be careful about that neck and headstock angle - make sure there is enough room for it to lay flat without any pressure.

Commonly known as the Chris Isaak model because it was his first guitar (he also named his third album "Silvertone") these are very sought after among players and collectors. The pickups were made by Gibson and are PAF Mini Humbuckers. They came stock with this model which was the only time Gibson ever interacted with Harmony/Silvertone. Guitar has a great weight and feel. Neck is straight and action is fast. I did a gig with this axe last week and it killed. Hate to part with it but just have too many.
Only modifications are: An ivory colored plate on the input jack and strap locks. I do not have the original pickgaurd either. Will send more photos upon request. Sorry, no case.

  1. I blogged about the 1446 www.truevintageguitar.blogspot.com Wish I had been in CA at that time!


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.
