The 1960s meant many things to many people; it was a time of newfound freedom; it was a time of the fear and reality of war. It was a time of exploration, both of inner and outer space. It was a time of experimentation, musical and otherwise. The Beatles; the Rolling Stones, Woodstock; Altamont, Kennedy; Nixon, groovy; heavy... on all fronts, it was a time of change, contrast, challenges.
Silvertone took up the challenge of providing amps and guitars to a music playing public hungry to test the musical waters. Challenge the status quo, try something new... for a while it seemed anything was possible.
