Greetings folks, this is my very first Youtube video. I picked up this old Silvertone a few months back and just get it back from the shop. Had my buddy Nathan Noel do a neck reset and fret job. This thing is starting to grow on me!

What do you think- should I keep it? :)

Oh, and pay no attention to that confused looking old man in the video.

Hi Dave,

Nice playing! I say keep the guitar. The ladder braced guitar really works well on both of those tunes. Good string to string separation... I have an all hog 50s era Harmony H165 that I'd like to get worked on. I have just over $100 in it "as is."

Would you mind PMing me with the cost the neck reset and installation of the pinned bridge?

BTW, does that Silverstone have the no trussrod neck that feels like a baseball bat. That's what mine has...

Excellent find and playing!

Just proves you don't need a multi K$ instrument to move the masses.

Thanks for the nice comments, guys!  :)

This Silvertone has a steel-reinforced neck, but it's not adjustable. It's 1 3/4 nut and pretty beefy. I love it!

As for pricing, I sent you a PM. This guy is a hobbyist luthier and isn't really looking for lots of work.  I can check to see if he'd be interested, though.

I first had lights on it (.012's) but it sounded kind of thin and over driven (is that a word?). I put mediums on the two treble strings it just came alive. That's what you hear on the video. Wish the audio was better...

I'ts back at Nathan's now to have him look at a loose brace, and I think the side is pulling away a bit at the lower bout. It's a keeper though.  Can't wait to try it out live on some blues tunes.
