December 4, 2014

GALLATIN, TN – The Silvertone 1423, one of the most popular Silvertone guitars from the 1960s and reissued earlier this year, features all the style and tone of the original with improvements in playability, hardware and construction. The model now has an all-new finish, debuting at NAMM Show ’15.

“After last year’s release of the 1423 model, we’re thrilled to now offer it in a groovy looking red finish,” stated Tony De La Rosa, Product Manager for Samick Music Corporation. “The release of this new finish is just the start of new Silvertone products debuting it 2015, including an all-new line of vintage reissue Silvertone acoustic guitars.”

Originally offered from 1959 through 1962, the Silvertone 1423 “Jupiter” is a collector’s favorite. The highlight of this reissue is the unique “blender control” – in addition to the separate volume and tone controls for each pickup, the “blend” knob alters the balance between the two pickups when the selector switch is in the middle position. Twisting this knob creates a sound similar to a “wah pedal.”

Some of the other features on the Silvertone 1423 guitar are height adjustable Duncan Design pickups, an intonatable bridge, and a modern profile mahogany neck with dual expanding truss rod. Designed in the USA and manufactured in Samick’s factory, this guitar produces unique sound that inspires creative playing.
