I have a confession....I'm a nut for the old budget brands of the 60's. Lately I've been wondering about the new production Dano's, as well as the new reissue Silvertones from Samick. A few models have really piqued my interest. The Dano's have pretty good reviews on MF, but since I don't have a Silvertone dealer nearby, I was wondering if anyone with experience could comment on the new models....

Silvertone 1478 rocks. I want one. They sound wonderful. But get this year's model. It has pickups designed buy the family that made the old ones. They look and sound wonderful. The guitar is well built. And plays like a dream. I have seen videos on them. I love it. Wow.

But I have never held one in my hands. Can only buy online. I love to play one. :cool::huh

I had one of the 90s era U2 reissues. I liked the tone, but the bridge was worthless as far as tuning and intonation. I sold it years ago after much frustration.
That new bridge with saddles looks much more useful.

Might have to check those out for round two.
