Originally offered in 1959 through 1962, the Silvertone 1423 was made by the Harmony Company. It was known as the Jupiter H49 model in Harmony’s Stratotone Series . Pretty space age, eh? While Silvertone didn’t use this name, collectors often refer to the 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.
