This Silvertone 653 Kentucky Blue Archtop was made in the USA in the mid 1950's. This example shows normal wear. There are small dings and scratches but overall it is in nice shape. The guitar is in playable condition and the neck is straight. The guitar doesn't play like a brand new Taylor guitar but is a playable instrument and has a good tone. The pickguard is not original. It comes with a non original chipboard case.
