$ 1499.00

Vintage 1960s Silvertone 1446 “Chris Isaak” Model with case, made in the mid-60s by Harmony in USA. This iconic Chris Isaak guitar features the incredible sounding Gibson mini-humbuckers with staggered polepieces, exclusive to this model. Black lacquer finish with tuxedo trim, unique pentagonial pickup bezels and diamond selector switch cover, original Bigsby Tailpiece, original adjustable bridge and large block inlays. Heavy 5-ply binding on top and neck, original cupcake knobs, nut and endpin. Tuners were upgraded to Grovers before coming into my possession in the mid-80s, nearly 40 years ago. Dings, scratches and signs of use early in life, with finish checking and imperfections and fingerboard wear in open position. Original frets in good shape and neck nice and straight with fantastic action and playability. Original Centralab pots still working fine, plays and sounds absolutely phenomenal. Pickguard missing and looks much cooler without in my opinion. No cracks, breaks or repairs. Comes with what I believe is original upgraded case, plush orange velvet interior with a lot of damage on exterior, missing handle, hinge, latch and edge torn around bottom. Packed securely and shipped quickly with experience you can trust, thanks for looking!
