A: All the information I have is listed on this site. There's links on the gallery page to sites with more information. Please look at those. We also recommend doing a Google search for your guitar.

Q: I'm looking for part(s) for my Silvertone. Do you sell Silvertone parts?

Q: I have a Silvertone guitar that I want to sell. How much will you give me for it?
A: The price we pay for a guitar varies according to it's condition. We will only purchase guitars that are, in general, completely original. If parts have been replaced or it's been repainted we are not interested in purchasing it. It also has to be fully functional (all the electronics must work properly) and the neck has to be straight. If you are interested in selling a Vintage Silvertone guitar please contact me with a fairly detailed description of the condition including photos. Important parts to show in photos are a close ups of the body and neck.
Now that we've expanded our guitar lines, we are also interested in purchasing other brands of guitars besides Silvertones. If you have a unique guitar that's from 1980 or earlier please contact us about it. Generally, we're looking for "different" guitars. Fenders, Gibsons, and Gretches are not really of interest right now unless they're truly unique.
