1963 SILVERTONE 1446L Gibson Pickups ThinLine semi-hollowbody Chris Isaac Model not a reissue this is a beautiful Vintage Guitar.... SOLD OUT!|
SOLD OUT SORRY: Here we have a real vintage Classic a real fine example of the classic 1963 Silvertone 1446L
Electric hollowbody - in Black finish- This guitar has undeniable STAGE PRESENTS. Distributed by Sears & Roebuck back in the day
Production year(s) : 1961-1967
This is THE model to own its the one that used the mini Paf Gibson mini Humbucking pickups and they never used these pickups on any other Harmony Silvertone or Airline guitar, so there is no Harmony equivalent of this very cool model if you haven't heard one like this live your going to be pleasently supprised to say the least. This is the one to own with some really great tone ... this example has that classic bell ring crisp tone these models are know for it also came with the classic Bigsby vibrato which is again VERY COOL. This model Silvertone was used by so many greats for recording & live performances back in the day Used by the likes of Hubert Sumlin (with Howlin Wolf) and more recently by the soulful Chris Isaac (his first album was named "Silvertone". Early 60's Sears catalogs from (61-62) show the guitar with different pickups (P13) and pickup's rings, but no samples are seen with others. Some samples are reported with different knobs and also a double cutaway verssion said to exist. About our example is a 1963 and it sounds absolutely incredible beautiful sounding strong toneful old school Gibson tone to my ears. It is pretty light weight so it will not wear you out playing this Black beauty for hours and you will want to play this one for hours because it plays effortless and is sounding so great ... I love it for vintage tone it can't be beat at this price range for a great USA Vintage guitar its over 50 year old with classic semi-hollowbody tone really come on its a no brainer this classic needs to be part of a guitarslingers arsonal.. This one is extra nice condition its old and it shows some light play wear not too much though it had been in its original case for many years in the closet of the elderly original owner...the neck is very slick & has a fast feel and is so EZ to play. This is a really good one....in top condition and ready to RECORD or TOUR tonight..
