Product Description

Originally offered in 1959 through 1962, the Silvertone Classic 1423 was made by the Harmony Company. It was known as the Jupiter H49 model in Harmony's Stratotone Series. Pretty space age, eh? While Silvertone didn't use this name, collectors often refer to the 1423 as a "Jupiter." The highlight of this Reissue is the unique "blender control" control setup. In addition to separate volume and tone controls for each pickup, the guitar features a "blend" knob that alters the balance between the two pickups when the selector is in the middle position.

An updated reissue of the original with improved playability and sound. Featuring custom Duncan Designed humbucking pickups, a tune-o-matic bridge, comfortable 12 1/2" radius 'C' shaped mahogany neck and a light resonant 7lb. solid mahogany body.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Silvertone products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Nostalgia plus"
Overall: My first guitar was a Silvertone that my parents got me in 1962 to fulfill my Christmas wish for a guitar. It was what I first learned on and played until I traded it for my first fiddle. When I saw this re-issue, read the description of up-graded construction and components, and watched video demonstrations, well, I couldn't resist. It came in short time, beautiful and playable out of the box. I adjusted the action a bit at the nut and shimmed a couple of vibrating saddles at the bridge, and changed strings, but all-in-all there was nothing "wrong" with the instrument. The neck is a joy, and the sound, which I run through a Marshall amp, has a wide spectrum of colors. It has a distinctive voice, especially warm clean from the bridge pup. And it is really cool looking. It is more than just a return to the good ol' days.
Style of Music: Folk music, in the sense that all music is made by folks. We jam everything from Scottish fiddle tunes to Beatle hits and curren

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Absolutley love this guitar!"
Overall: I received this guitar yesterday and it looks amazing and appearance is pretty close to the original 1962 Silvertone. I plugged it in to my amp last night and started playing and that's where I was really impressed. The tones I was getting out of this guitar made my American made, 50th anniversary Strat suddenly become the second best sounding guitar that I own. It's not a real close race either. I could have bought three of these for the price I paid for the Strat. I haven't had this out on a Gig yet but that's coming up very soon. Zzounds made this so easy to buy on their installment plan - that I am seriously thinking that once I get done with my last payment on this, I may buy a second Jupiter. This guitar is everything I hoped it was and much more! If you don't believe me - buy it and see for yourself!
