Silvertone

I have a Strat inspired Silvertone with the Silvertone name on the headstock along with a Big S behind the name and a made in Japan label on the back of it. I tried to find some info on line but I can only come up with Harmony Silvertone, and I can't find a guitar picture that looks like it. Has anyone ever heard of it or point me in the right direction for some info. It has three single pickups, and a sunburst finish. It looks like a cool vintage guitar Something nice to play.

Thanks for any info.

You have a new 70's guitar made by the New Japan Harmony company which is in trouble now. They made copies of all the good guitars and did a pretty good job. They have no website and their phone is answered by an answering machine.....

Re: Silvertone

Have you looked at Samick? didnt they take on the silvertone series of jap copies? do a google search on it.

Can you use a distortion pedal to switch channels,from clean to dirty, the pedal I have sux, but the amps dirty is pretty good

Re: curious

no you cant, go to the your local guitar/amp shop and ask for the channel swich pedal that should have come with the amp, they dont cost much.

Les Paul Copy

I have obtained a LP copy that has the word "STEVEN" on the headstock. It is a very good playing axe. It has binding all around and a great flame top. It was purchased by my son when he was living in china and was playing there. It is almost an exact copy of a standard except has a little different body configuration on the backside. Plays and feels like a real quality piece. I can't find any info on this guitar on the web. Can anyone help me?

ES-335 w/block inlays

Anyone know of a reissue ES-335 (Cherry Red) with block inlays not dot neck markers?? The Vintage Guitar Price Guide & Blue Book both mention them but I can't find one. The Gibson Custom Shop wants your first born to make a block neck 335. Any help appreciated.

Re: ES-335 w/block inlays

did you realy want the re-issue? what about the original '66 model? what an investment, $3000? i know what you mean about the blocks though, i have a re-issuse with dot markers and always prefered the look of the block markers, also mine has the grover heads, and those klusons look the biz.

Re: ES-335 w/block inlays

I have a 1999 model ES 335 with the block inlays. The model is funnily enough titled ES 335 Block (limited edition) Im actually about to sell it. Contact me if your interested.

MN1-036708(sn) Early Fender mexican strat. Black/White pickguard/rosewood fretboard (need info on it

I think this early model Mexican Strat is made with all American Parts and Hardware because i've never seen,or heard,any other mexican Strat that sounds like this one.I would not even take an American model over this guitar. I need more info on this guitar. I think it has all American parts, but was essembelled in Mexico.I think I have an excellent guitar, and I would love to find out more about it. Such as:Where it was made,What kind of parts and hardware it has on it, and how much it might be worth.It's in excellent condition.(beautiful guitar)ALL ORIGINAL!

help

What is a guitar strap and a pitch pipe?
Thank you.

Re: help

The strap is the "belt" that you put in your neck to hold the guitar.
The pitch pipe is a device that functions as a tuner and it works by blowing through it to hear the tunes.

New cool guitars and gear.

A friend of mine makes some really nice guitars and sells the coolest gear. His gear is similar to Orange county Choppers stuff. brtguitars.com

Stolen Telecaster

Someone broke a back window of a car sitting outside a bar on Greenville Ave. in Dallas Tx in 1973, and stole my Fender Telecaster, and Tiesco Amp from the back seat. I realize that a lot of water has passed under the old bridge, but I loved that guitar. (The internet gives me a chance to PUT THE WORD OUT) I bought it in Sasebo Japan thru the Navy Exchange while on R&R in around 1970/71 (can't remember for sure.) I don't remember the serial # and am not positive, but I think it's a 1968/69. I'm sure of the color: off white with a rosewood neck. I do remember I scribed my name CHUCK CUSIMANO,into the wood, under the pick guard. At the time it was stolen, it had a custom LEATHER (black) pick guard with CHUCK in white letters, and red roses.The white plastic original one was also in the original case. Also it had a custom padded leather guitar strap, with my name CHUCK, comming down the front. It was black with white letters, and red roses, along with white "buckstitching" I used to do a lot of leather work, and I made them at the same time (1972)I made a leather guitar strap for Merle Haggard.(His was brown letters on natural leather, with brown "buckstitching". I am not rich, and I probably don't stand one chance in hell of ever recovering the guitar, but I would sure try to pay a decent reward to get it back. That guitar was a friend to me during the Vietnam war even if for a little while. If you even know anything about it please E-MAIL me at:
cusimusico@hotmail.com Thank you!

I have a Squire is it any good

I bought a squire strat made by fender and it sounds good but is it cheaply made and will it break . I bought it for two hundred dollars . I am wondering if I got a good deal

Re: I have a Squire is it any good

where was it made? if its jap they tend to be very good, china and india are not so good. 200 is OTT for the latter

76 Ibanez Les Paul Custom

Bought this guitar for 325 on ebay June 02.
Guitar has an annoying squeal when cranked.
I thought about changing pickups but after reading some reviews on another site this might not cure the squeal.
Has anyone out there ran into this on other Jap Pauls?
Also I see a lot of talk here about ebay.
While you can get some deals,beware people.
My friend in DFW thought he was getting an Orville
and turned out to be a Burny LP Standard with Gibson decals. Paid 535.
Back to Ibanez,is the squeal Im getting common on all Ibanez Les Pauls?
Thanx
Rico in Tejas

Re: 76 Ibanez Les Paul Custom

SQEAL SQEAL. RESOLDER THE WHOLE GUITAR INCLUDING THE GROUND. USING THE BEST SOLDER YOU CAN FIND.
PS: DONT CHANGE THE PICKUPS FROM WHAT I WAS ALWAYS TOLD THE IBANEZ LP COPY OF THE LATE 70'S IS WORTH A LOT OF MONEY AND IBANEZ WAS SUED BY GIBSON FOR THOSE MODELS SO HANG ONTO THAT RIG ........
