1958 Silvertone-Kay 620 Jumbo acoustic in Austin TX for $300

This seller is offering a Silvertone 620 which is indeed a rare jumbo sized acoustic with all solid woods from the late 1950's. The big block inlays on the rosewood fretboard put this guitar well above the average vintage Silvertone acoustic out there.  It even includes the original Kay-Silvertone chipboard case.


SILVERTONE 620 JUMBO ACOUSTIC 1958-59 - $300 (Georgetown-Austin)

For sale is a nice original Silvertone 620 Jumbo acoustic guitar. These are extremely rare as they were only available for one year between 1958 and 1959. This is the upgraded 618, with big block fret markers.

Made in America by Kay with a steel reinforced, slim, hard maple neck, hand polished spruce and mahogany, distinctive celluloid binding on the sound hole and top and bottom edges, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Also has the original Kluson Deluxe tuners in good condition, like the ones Gibson used in the 50's. Has the engraved "Silvertone" logo on the headstock.

Includes the original case.

Guitar has some light finish cracks but the wood is still solid. All original except for a new bone saddle.
Action is a bit high on the upper frets but fine for slide.

Richard Gere's 618 sold at auction last year for $875.

Asking $300.

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.
