Perhaps in defiance of the Fender/Gibson traditionalism that has permeated rock for so long, many artists today have instead turned to the forgotten budget guitars of the ‘60s. From Beck’s Silvertone 1448 to Dan Auerbach’s Harmony H78, vintage department store guitars are becoming a mark of hipness these days. We particularly like the Harmony Bobkat, which is also a favorite of St. Vincent’s Annie Clark. Also known as the Silvertone Bobkat (sold through Sears back in the day), this model came with one or two DeArmond gold foil pickups and a Jazzmaster-esque offset body. Simple, rad, and cheap (for a 50-year-old guitar).
