    Any time I need to remember a long number etc, say a serial number of my favorite guitar or a special hardly used password, I write it on the side of a desk drawer.

    Paper and notebooks can be misplaced and discarded, not so easy to lose a desk.

    (So if anyone breaks into my house they now know where to look!)

    Going to tell my Son that one. No one is allowed to touch his Telecaster. I think it is a 1978. He is restoring his older brothers Silvertone. I had no idea that was a collectors item until a workman flipped out over it.

    Reminds me of the Gooch cartoon I have pasted on my desk. Started with, I think,therefore I am. By the time Gooch heard it became. "He thinks he am!"

    I once bought a Sears Silvertone solid body electric at a yard sale for $4.



    They really weren't worth anything at the time, I took it home and tore that poor guitar apart to see how cheesily it was made. (about as cheesy as it gets, lol, they had what looked like shelf paper ("No Bugs M'Lady"?) on the "sides" of the guitar, the body was made of marine-grade plywood...)

    Today, they are worth $1,500 on up, and the price on items like that can go up in quantum leaps as time goes by!

    What happened was, they do have a certain distinctive sound, kind of a cheap "garage" sound... but when you actually DO need that particular sound, there is no real substitute...

    Thx

    This is why I was surprised. It is a hollow body,with what I always called a wah wah bar,and a huge amplifier. That amplifier has a paddle. Apparently that is in demand. Probably 68.

    That sounds like a rare one.

    There are different grades of Silvertones, some much higher quality than others, those are made to compete more directly with legitimate manufacturers, Fender and Gibson.

    That model I bought was the lowest grade, other models have two pickups, they are made of better wood, they made a lot of changes year by year.

    Here is a reasonably nice 1969 semi-hollow.



    They had different manufacturers make their guitars for them.

    Thx
