This is a true original Silvertone 1423 Jupiter guitar made by Harmony in the U.S.A. Includes original chipboard case with cool 2-tone exterior and Red interior. Considering their age, the case and guitar are in exceptional condition. This guitar was bought from Champlin Guitars around a year ago and is fully functional, sounds and plays like a dream. The 1423 Jupiter is virtually identical to the Harmony H49 Stratotone. It was offered from 1959 to 1963 and was one of Silvertone's more expensive guitars.

All electronics work properly. Hardware includes the original Brazilian rosewood floating bridge and nickel trapeze tailpiece. There are Volume and Tone knobs for each pickup and a 3-way pickup selector, including "Blender". This knob allows you to mix the amount of Bridge and Neck pickups for a variety of tones. The pickups have a strong, clear output.

This guitar has a Black Sparkle finish that was exclusive to Sears. There are minor marks here and there as expected, the top, back, binding and headstock are cleaner than you see on most of these available. Up close in certain lighting, you can see some faint finish checking on the top and back. The instrument jack was repaired by Champlin Guitars and is fully functional. The Like the case, the guitar is probably cleaner than many out there. It plays great, has tones ranging from deep to sparkly, has low action and stays in tune for days.
