Mine looks like Willie Nelson's guitar with a big section out of the back, kids color crayon marks all over, a crack in the soundboard and dents everywhere alse but nevertheless the neck, frets and playability is as good as the day it was bought. I prefer its playability to many new mid-level student guitars marketed today.
Does anyone know where, by whom, of what matarial these were made? Mine appears to have a spruce soundboard, solid wood back and sides of what wood I don't know.
I have an old SIlvertone Classic Guitar. I would guess it's from the mid '60's, it was made in the USA and as I understand it it's made from solid woods. I'm pretty sure these were made by Harmony. Here's a link I found -
I got my Silvertone about 6 months on e - b a y for $75 after playing someone else's. I needed a 2nd classical guitar to keep at the office and this is perfect. Anyone who's played it is amazed at how good it feels and plays.
