The 714 was a beautiful guitar, with a famously unexpected pedigree. It was built by Gretsch!
That's right, one of the greatest guitar makers ever actually built a Silvertone model for Sears! Based on the 1940s Synchromatic 100 model, the Silvertone 714 was identical to its famous-name counterpart except for the legend on the headstock, and even that shared the inlaid fancy script of the 'Synchromatic' model.
Only confirmed listing:
