Was looking for a smaller electric that would be easier on my back (have a full-size you could anchor a boat with) and easier to travel with. This guitar is no toy, unlike many other mini electrics you see for sale. Easy to play once you adjust to the shorter scale, sounds nice. The single cutaway Silvertone SSL3 is a great guitar to play and own. It delivers a raw, bluesy power that you expect from the classic design of dual humbuckers, making it great for lead or rhythm guitar players.

Feature:
Circa 2003-2004, Tobacco Sunburst version made in Indonesia, this is one of the most complete Les Paul designs on the market. 22 Fret cream-bound rosewood fretboard, Maple Bent Top, 2 Volume, 2 Tone, 2 Chrome Humbucking Pickups, Tobacco Sunburst finish, Mahogany body, Mahogany neck, Flame Maple top, Les Paul body style, Tune-O-Matic Bridge with stop tailpiece, generic Grover-style smooth tuners.

Quality:
The guitar is beautiful. Minor defects. (chipped fret markers) but hardly noticeable. And it doesn’t scratch easy. This particular guitar seems to have been through very stringent quality control. It take some big drops and not even get a scratch
Especially for the money! Great workmanship, love the frets-polished/very smooth-no jagged, sharp frets makes moving about-especially those power chords very easy!! Great finish too!

Sound :
It’s everything you need in a Les Paul clone. It sounds clean with a 100w head, well behaved. The sound is full and with digital FX it will weep and scream with the best. it’s fed into a practice amp, Roland Crate 15 – what a combo!  the pickups were great, plugged it in a marshall mg100 and it can get really. Switched for Metallica or Rock. Only one have weakness is volume controls don’t seem to work very good but is still OK !!

Value:
The guitar is easily worth hundreds more. It is easily as good as a Gibson, the best sounding for the look is beautiful but it’s a silvertone with a good price. Check Latest Price.

Ease of Use:
It is very easy to play this guitar indeed, like others have said its just pick it up plug in and shred. You might need to adjust the action. Mine was a little too low. It was fine for the beginning. I will adjust it a little when I would need to put new strings on.

Desirability:
It’s shaped like a Gibson Les Paul. A very desirable guitar that not everyone can afford. The SSL3 is the next best thing. The cherry burst finish is beautiful. The shape, visual appeal, quality, and price, are this guitars features that you want. Looks great, plays great, slides easy, and very sexy.

Overall:
This guitar is very well made. It is durable, it is playable, it sounds good, and it is VERY affordable. You expect this to cover my Paul needs for some time. The only reason may get a different manufactures version is to have a different color

  1. I was blown away by this guitar, so much that I purchased 2 of them. A really beefy guitar that I feel the quality is equal that of gibson. Even the at the guitar shop the Guitar Nazi’s and the guitar snob’s gave this guitar its dues in looks and feel.
    I have a Greg Bennett guitar and I know the background that Silvertone is now owned by Samick.
    That speaks for itself.
