Silvertone 955 Classic Acoustic Guitar

Before the birth of Silvertone electrics, the original Silvertone acoustic guitars graced the American landscape from the '40s through the '70s. The unplugged beauty and raw acoustic sound of Silvertone acoustics was heard around campfires, inside living rooms, and around college campuses nationwide. Less known to many, Silvertone acoustic guitars can be heard on some of the most historically significant recordings in Rock 'n' Roll history. Like the Silvertone Classic electric series, the reissue Silvertone acoustics feature the same look and vibe of the originals, with 21st Century build quality. Silvertone kept the old 'mojo' while making the guitars appealing to modern players. From higher quality tonewoods, to replacing steel rods with truss rods, they've respectfully revamped these guitars from the ground-up.

On the beach or on the stage, Silvertone acoustics are back for a new generation!

Originally manufactured for the Canadian market under the model 26955, this rare gem was resurrected from the Silvertone archives to balance out the acoustic family by including a more traditional Dreadnought body style. The 955 features a solid Engelmann Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides. Silvertone refined the herringbone binding and sound hole rosette, and opted to keep the original block inlay.

Features:

- Dreadnought body
- Solid Engelmann Spruce top
- X-style bracing
- Rosewood back and sides
- C-shape Nato Mahogany neck
- Rosewood fingerboard (12" radius)
- Nut width 1 11/16"
- 20 fret, 25 1/2"scale
- Block inlay
- Herringbone binding
- Tortoise pick guard
- Chrome sealed tuners
- Rosewood bridge

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great for the money."
Overall: I ended up in the unfortunate situation last week of needing money, the only thing I could do was to sell my beloved Martin HD-28, I thought I would never find anything else to be happy with but surprisingly and thankfully I was wrong. I spent a good deal of time browsing zZounds and looking at all the acoustic guitars on the site. I was just about to purchase an Ibanez but I came across the Silvertone and I immediately noticed that it looked a lot like my HD-28. It seemed to have the same body shape, color and wood combo, etc. I found some reviews which were good and I found that it was made by Sammick which has the ability to make great guitars, so I decided to take a chance on it and I'm glad I did.First I would like to say that zZounds is great, as always. 2 day shipping for free! Plus insanely affordable payments. Now, the guitar, unboxing was a pleasant surprise, the fit and finish is very very good, the guitar has a beautiful gloss finish and the neck carve is excellent. The top is spruce and it's got a nice dark color like a well aged Martin. The guitar is absolutely gorgeous. It's extremely difficult to believe that it only cost $279!As far as playing goes, well the action was absolutely perfect right out of the box, zero adjustment needed. A quick tune and I was off to the races. As I mentioned before, the neck carve is just great, it's somewhere around a Gibson 60's neck but slightly different. The frets are finished well but do have slight edges to them but it's nothing to complain about. The binding on the neck does not go over the fret edges but it's very well done anyway. The guitar plays effortlessly and is a real joy. The sound from this guitar is satisfying, it has a nice bass response and is very articulate. Each note is clear and defined to the point that mistakes just jump out of it, so it may even help you to play better! The tone does have a good round sound with balance across the spectrum but it is what I would call bright. In comparison to the Martin this guitar has tons and tons of top end. The Martin is very bottom heavy and the high notes are smooth, on the Silvertone the bottom and middle are smooth but the top end really jumps out. It's not a bad thing as I can see it sitting very well in a mix or a jam, but playing alone it is quite toppy. Overall I am glad and impressed. For the price it is more than worth it, this doesn't replace the Martin completely but it does fill the void of having to sell that guitar. It doesn't compare to the Martin in terms of tone BUT for the price it's amazingly close, the workmanship is right there with Martin (in my opinion) and the feel is also just as good, the looks are close as well. The only thing it's missing is the huge bottom end of the Martin but that's about all it's missing. Buy it an enjoy!
