Just pulled the trigger on this... 25" scale with DeArmond Pickups.

That's grand. And 25" scale is my favourite.

Nice. I'm always thrown off by how heavy they are considering how close they look to the originals. I think Doog has a black one. It looks cool in red.

Sweet! I used to a black Silvertone like that. Check out the Margaret Glaspy's Harmony Jupiter in the thread about her I posted below.

Nice, I really like mine, although it's had some upgrades (Mojo Goldfoil pups, B3, white button tuners, new 4-way pot thats supposed to be serial/parallel but I fucked it).



Nice that you got the D'Armond goldfoils rather than the stock fake TV Joneses; I emailed them a while back about getting a pair for mine but they totally blanked me, total asswholes

The scale's 24 3/4, mind- don't you be boasting to all the gals about that extra quarter inch, Cowbell...

Weird, it's about as light as the Jazzmaster I had, not heavy at all.

I defo prefer the solid body of this reissue, even if it's not vintage-correct. Did love that mid-60s Silvertone 1448 I tried out last year though.. lovely, but not for me.

Sweet!

I'm glad to know you actively own/play one because I aspire to be you... Wink

Seriously though, I do feel better knowing you own one because you play A LOT and aren't one to B.S. about guitars.

I feel like these are hidden gems, and I would love to own teh vintage one but if I spent the $$ to get teh vintage I know it would probably cost me $$ to get it to play worth a damn.

Thanks. That's exactly what drew me to it. I had seen them in black, but when I saw red + D'armond pups, I was SOLD.

My buddy has a vintage Silvertone that looks like that, shit is so fun to play. Never have got to try any of the reissues.

Silvertone is my shit. Love my 1448 and 1449.

Totally, these things play like budder; love the radius and the neck profile; it feels like the perfect fit for me and my weird alienhands.
