This is an extremely rare 1964 Silvertone 1417L. This model was only made for two years, 1964 and 1965. I believe these were made for Sears by Kay guitars, but I could not swear to that. The V-profile neck is nice and straight and it stays in tune all the way up. This guitar really must be played to be appreciated.
The pots are in great shape and move noiselessly through their full range. All the electronics are original and everything works as it should. The tuners are all original and work fine. You could gig this guitar all night and never feel weighed down.This guitar is well-traveled and road worn. Most of the paint is worn off the neck, and there are several small dings along the edges (pictured). The original, rosewood bridge is long gone. It has been replaced with another vintage, rosewood bridge that had to be modified slightly (holes re-drilled, string guides cut in), bit no modifications had to be made to the guitar to accomplish this, so if you find an original bridge itll set right on the posts like new! There is a small piece of plastic missing from just next to the low-E string hole on the nut (pictured). There are some marks on the back of the guitar. Id live to tell you what made them, but it happened long before I bought it. The tremolo arm is missing, but I believe a standard, Mexican strat trem will fit.
Generally speaking, while it may not be the prettiest thing in the world, this is a great, vintage guitar and youll definitely be the only one on your block who has one!
