This is the Silvertone Model 1457, commonly referred to as the "Amp in a case." The Model 1457 was manufactured from roughly 1964-1967 in Neptune, NJ. The guitar is constructed from a Masonite body, poplar neck, rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, and aluminum nut. The electronics are two lipstick-style single-coil pickups with a three-way pickup selector and volume and tone knobs.
In order to setup the guitar for a smooth playing experience, our guitar techs crafted a neck pocket shim and leveled, crowned, and polished uneven frets. The guitar is fully functional, feels great, and plays effortlessly.
The case to the Model 1457 features a built-in amplifier. The amplifier features two inputs, tube driven tremolo, and an 8" Jensen Special Design speaker. Tones ranging from sparkly cleans to compressed overdrive are obtainable from this amplifier.
This Silvertone Model 1457 comes to us from a vintage collector who took good care of preserving it. This model is believed to be from the mid '60s and shows wear from its age, mostly on the case itself. Both the guitar and amplifier are fully functional.
