Introduced in 1954 initially as a Harmony brand model, the Jupiter model was sold under the Silvertone brand in the 1950's and '60s throughout department stores and catalogs in the US. The Stratotone Jupiter for a top of the line model for Harmony, and these Silvertone Jupiter 1423 models share many of these high end characteristics. This 1962 Silvertone Jupiter 1423 is a beautiful example of a Harmony made Silvertone guitar, in exceptionally clean condition.
The Sivlertone Jupiter features a hollow body design that adds a real acoustic warmth and resonance to the tone, which also adds to the roundness and woody nature. Constructed from a Spruce top with Maple back and sides, the body is fitted with a set of DeArmond Gold Foil pickups, rightly considered some of the best, most unique sounding vintage pickups around, with a clarity and bite that sets them apart from single coils and humbucker of the time. The neck features a comfortable 'D' shaped profile, with multi ply neck binding and pearl block inlay. This guitar is finished in a cool '60s style metallic sparkle black.
This guitar is in very good, all original condition, with only minor signs of play wear, and has been given a full service & appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop. This guitar also includes a 3 year warranty.
