Right. Silvertone was the musical-instrument and electronics brand of Sears, and they used the brand on everything from guitars to TV sets. They actually didn't make the stuff themselves--there was no Silvertone factory--they farmed the work out to various companies. Their guitars were made mostly by Harmony (who Sears actually bought), Kay, and Danelectro, and I've heard that they made Semie Moseley an offer (which he turned down) to buy Mosrite. The guitar in the pic is a Danelectro-made Silvertone that came as a set with an amp built into the guitar case. That's a double-pickup model with a full-scale neck, but they also had a single-pickup short-scale version--my cousin got one of those when he and I got our first electrics in '64. Not a bad guitar--it played better than my St. George-branded Teisco did!

I think that's the same guitar Lenny plays for the first half of the movie That Thing You Do until later when the band starts making some money and he upgrades to a Fender Jaguar. Except Lenny's didn't have the sparkly finish like the one in the pic above.
