Silvertone 1423 Series Electric Guitar BGF/RSFB

Regular price $549.00

Originally offered in 1959 through 1962, the Silvertone 1423 was manufactured by the Harmony factory in Chicago .Ā This version was known as the Jupiter H49. Pretty space age, eh?Ā While Silvertone didnā€™t use this name, collectors often refer to the 1423 as a ā€œJupiter.ā€Ā The highlight of this Reissue is the unique ā€œblender controlā€ control setup.Ā In addition to separate volume and tone controls for each pickup, the guitar features aĀ ā€œblendā€ knob that alters the balance between the two pickups when the selector is in the middle positionĀ creating an almost 'Wah pedal' tone when dialed back and forth.
