1959 Silvertone "Suburbanite"\

The first time I saw this set I wasn't very impressed, it's Grey and rather plain looking, but after a time I came to appreciate it for it's rather unique style.
The case is constructed of Fiberglass, which probably seemed really high-tech at the time.

This "Suburbanite logo is classic 1950's "Jetsons" styling, I might have passed the set up if not for this.

Look at those great 1950's colors!! I would love to have one of each!
