Silvertones have been played by nearly every artist that has ever picked up a guitar. Elvis, Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Don Helms, Brad Paisley... the list goes on and on... and they all cut their musical teeth for at least part of their learning process on a Silvertone instrument.
They were inexpensive (Don't say cheap!), they were electric and acoustic and bass and steel and mandolins and fiddles and harmonicas, and they were from Sears! Easy payments! Wish Book!
Nowadays, artists are turning to Silvertone more and more in their search for the sound. Look for a Silvertone amp or instrument on a stage near you, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
