bought an old Silvertone acoustic guitar from the 60's in a yard sale. Neck was all messed up. Well since I know nothing about neck resets I drilled it put a rod in and glued the crap outta it. ya know it sound pretty good and is holding up for over a month now so maybe its ok. It will make some kid a good guitar as I tend to give these away when I know some kid wants to learn. Heck I think I even got the math right as no buzzing all the way down ... The wood looks cedar to me but not quite, did they make a blond Mahogany?

Who made these guitars anyway .. I know sears sold them but anyone know who the real maker was?

I have an old Silvertone from the late sixties. It was my first guitar. I need to use pliers to tune the D string.

Has a Stella like that, Don. Painted it white using enamel paint. Didn't change the tone one iota.
