Body: Composite top on a plywood body

Neck: Maple neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 1 5/8” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Open-back tuners, two lipstick pickups (rated at 3.6 kOhms in the neck and 4.5 k in the bridge), three-way pickup selector switch, stacked volume and tone controls

Cosmetic Condition: The body of this copper beauty is well worn, with loads of edge wear, dings and scratches to be found. The binding nicely yellowed, with some flaying along the treble side of the neck pocket. The pickguard is missing, which has left a nice halo behind. The copper paint has all but worn off of the neck, leaving the nicely tinted maple exposed beneath, with a few small dings to be felt. The headstock has plenty of character, with lots of finish inconsistencies and edge wear visible. This Silvertone is ready to rock!

Playability: The strings are set up nicely with medium/low action, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: None
