In this episode of The Local Pickup, we’re looking at a 1959 Silvertone Stratotone. This slick-looking guitar plays great for its age, and eagle-eyed viewers might immediately notice a resemblance to Harmony models of the ’50s. In the early days of the mass-produced electric guitar, Harmony was pumping out guitars for stores like Sears, making the same guitars under tons of different brand names. Learn more of this 1959 Silvertone Stratotone’s history and hear it sing in episode 42 of The Local Pickup.
