Chad Allan, the front man and a founding member of The Guess Who, named the band's previous incarnation Allan and The Silvertones after his favorite guitar. Now that is definitely a tribute to the iconic Silvertone guitar. These affordable and well-constructed guitars were often the instruments of choice for budding musicians like Jerry Garcia, Bob Dylan, and Chet Atkins. Silvertone acoustic guitars feature body styles that include full-size dreadnought, jumbo, folk, and parlor sizes. Silvertone also produced electric guitars, and both electric and acoustic models are available on eBay from the site's reliable sellers. The constantly changing inventory includes the coveted Danelectro Silvertone 1448. Introduced in 1962, the double cutaway resembled the iconic Fender Stratocaster. The original versions have one or two lipstick pickups, and the reissued versions have a pair of pickups. Notable musicians who favor the maple-neck 1448 include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Beck. More than one manufacturer put its name on the Silvertone guitar over the years, but the guitars from the 1960s remain the most coveted models.
