This H44 is part of a limited edition in Margarita Green and is only one of twenty-four made!
The 1950s Stratotone H44 was one of the coolest blues/slide guitars ever made that featured a short body with a FAT neck. The originals are becoming very hard to find and hard to play! Eastwood has improved the pickups and the stability of the neck but kept all the vintage appeal of the original. Better than the real thing!
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.
