Just found this forum. My one and only electric guitar is an old 1968 Sears Silvertone (made in japan). It's an oldie but a goody. It has slider controls and have not seen many like this. I'm still learning how to play it after all these years. Go at it for a few months then leave it for several months and have to learn all over, vicious cycle! I really can't play but it is fun to play around with (sounds good to me). Now that I'm retired think I will get back into it again.
