1964 Silvertone 1454 in Waco TX for $300 (needs work)

This seller is offering a fairly well worn Silvertone 1454 for a great deal if you want to bring it back to full functionality.  These usually gof for about $1K + in decent shape these days (Though I sold mine about 10 years ago for half that, darn) and this one has the very desirable original BIgsby B6 vibrato tailpiece.   Looks like one of the DeArmond "Diamond" pickups has been replaced at some point by a DeArmond "toaster" pickup (which also sound great) and one of the knobs and a switch tip are missing.  The main issue he says is that the neck is bowed - however, if you know these guitars you know you can swap a neck out pretty easily.   Most of the Kay and Harmony and Silvertones screw necks from this period are very similar - you just might have to do without the nice block inlays of this one.  Or you might get lucky and locate an identical neck. Ready to get your Black Keys groove on??  Good Luck!!

1964 vintage silvertone electric guitar, model 1454. The guitar needs a new neck, or some work done on the existing neck. It has a serious back bow, that truss rod loosening does not correct. Electronics work, good Bigsby, DeArmond pickups, old tuners, etc. I am in Waco, Texas. 300.00

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.
