Rare Canadian Made Slivatone Resonator Guitar from 1935

guitarz.blogspot.com:








When I first saw the ad for this 1925 Silvatone Resonator, I just assumed that it was a misspelling of Silvertone. But wait, was Silvertone around in 1935? Did they make resonators?

As it turns out, Silvatone is the name of guitars built by Charles Edward Brasher in Toronto in the time before WWII. It sounds like there wasn't many made and even fewer that still exist.

If it's as rare as that, it'll likely not last long at $1500.
