I love the old Silvertones and Airlines. The last guitar I gigged with before I left Vermont (on the last wagon train headed west) was a Silvertone Jupiter. I left it behind and my younger brother decided to trade it for something. I'd love to get another one but they sell for $1000 or so these days. Maybe when I win the lottery. I also had the single pickup version of the amp-in-the-case Silvertone. That was my first electric guitar. I don't know what ever happened to that one. And my very first guitar was a $16 acoustic from Sears that I still have! Ah, the good ol' days! :lol:
