Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..

A really cool 1960’s Silvertone 1415 Guitar. These guitars were only made a couple of years in the early 1960’s….They were discontinued in 1962…It comes completely original including the incredible original Hardshell Case…Its crazy clean..check those pics!

The guitar plays great with an awesome Pro Setup with low easy to play action. The Danelectro Lipstick Pickup sounds large and in charge. They are very strong. The guitar has very little wear on it except on the back of the neck…this guitar was played.. a lot…but probably just at home..no gigging with this guitar. Way too clean..the frets needed some attention so Jeff the Tech did a complete leveling and dressing to them. They look and play great now..see pics. The Silvertone logo is just as bright on the Headstock as the day it was on the Sears Sales Floor…only one small corner of the S is missing..see pics..

The action is great on this guitar. It plays effortlessly with low action. A very fun guitar to play with no sore fingers!

Here is some info on these cool guitar outfits from a respected Website…

The 'Dolphin Nose' 14XX series was the end of the 6-string 'U' series of guitars offered by Sears. They carried on the standard of the 'lipstick' pickup, the classic cutaway look of the body, and features you couldn't see like the dual neck truss rods, internal shielding for the electronics, and (as the catalog put it) 'core of hardwood balanced by hollow wing sections,' all topped off by the famous 'modern headpiece.' These guitars finished what the 1375/77 started in 1954 and disappeared with the advent of the 1448/49/57 line in late 1962.

Fall/Winter 1959

Spring/Summer 1962

This one with the top loaded Input jack makes it a later model 1415…

This Silvertone Guitar will give you years of playing pleasure. All original and setup to play right out of the box. You will love this cool 1960’s Silvertone Guitar!

I can't say enough about the original Hardshell Case. It looks like it was stored under the bed its entire life. Hardly any wear anywear on it. Original Handle, hinges and latches all present and operating properly. This would be at least a $200 case if it was listed by itself. You don't see these cases being offered any more. They are all snatched up...Grab this one!

Sold as-is as it is both vintage and used but…I have been hand picking vintage guitars for my customers for over 17 years now. They have all loved their instruments I find. This cool guitar and amp will not be an exception. The lucky buyer is to pay fixed shipping of $58 for the lower 48. All others please ask.

Thanks for checking out my cool instruments and gear here on Reverb.com
