Greg, I remember getting my first guitar and it was also a electric Silvertone. It came with a case with the amp built right in the case. Do you remember those? I still wish I had it today. My next guitar was an acustic Harmony model with the F holes. Brings back memories.

Yes, I remember those Silvertones. I think they might have been sold before this one, maybe around 1960. Does that make sense?

Greg, that was fun to see! I traded in my first electric guitar, which was a black hollow body model purchased through either Sears or Montgomery Wards, for a Fender Mustang when I was about a sophomore in high school. I regret selling the Mustang but because I sold it to buy the ring I gave my wife when I proposed to her, I believe I got the better deal in her. :) In return that move has paid dividends as I rarely get the look when I've purchased another guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, or other instrument. :) My first acoustic guitar was a Silvertone model I got in 6th grade, and after I bought a better acoustic I gave the Silvertone to a cousin who wanted to learn to play. It was a tough one on the fingers due to the high action and probably killed her interest in learning to play. Anyway, it is neat that you still have your first guitar!

We also use to play GLORIA. I think every young
band did that song in those days.
