Product Description

Originally offered in 1959 through 1962, the Silvertone 1423 was manufactured by the Harmony factory in Chicago. This version was known as the Jupiter H49. Pretty space age, eh?

While Silvertone didn’t use this name, collectors often refer to 1423 as a “Jupiter.” The highlight of this Reissue is the unique “blender control” control setup. In addition to separate volume and tone controls for each pickup, the guitar features a “blend” knob that alters the balance between the two pickups when the selector is in the middle position creating an almost 'Wah pedal' tone when dialed back and forth.

Upgraded pickups, hardware, and improved playability. The 1423 features Duncan -Design upgraded pickups that capture the tone of the originals. The original 1423 also had less-than-modern hardware... This Reissue has a fully adjustable bridge for accurate intonation and a die-cast tailpiece. Neck shapes and fret jobs were somewhat inconsistent on the original 1303. This one features a comfortable (and consistent) C-shaped neck with a precise and well-finished fret job. The neck also features a two-way truss rod for accurate and dependable adjustment.

Fun To Play!!

I had one of these back in the late 1960's when I first began to play. What a difference in playability. This modern reissue sounds great and looks even better. I got some great slide tones out of it using a Fender Blues Jr IV and a brass slide. I need to raise the action a bit for use as a slide guitar. Out of the box the set up was pretty good for standard play. Capital shipped quickly and I look forward to doing more business with them. Highly recommended!!

A beautiful guitar

This looks like a very well made guitar and the finish is beautiful.  The nut width is very close to my acoustic guitar which helps an old dog like me to go from playing one to the other.  For those of you who want to pick out a case, the body width is 13.25 inches.  I could not find this information anywhere on line and I purchased a soft case that is about a half inch too narrow.
After a few weeks of playing and contantly retuning my Silvertone 1423, I swapped in a set of Kluson locking tuners and added a String Butler.  I also rubbed a bit of graphite in the nut grooves.  Now it stays in tune, even when played hard.
