Silvertone Classic 1449 Electric Guitar | Daphne Blue

Brand New Silvertone Classic 1449 Electric Guitar | Daphne Blue
One of the most clever and well known concepts in the early '60s guitar boom was the Silvertone Amp-In-Case guitar. Just open the case halfway, stand it up, switch it on and wail! The original guitar in the 1962 kit was a single pickup, short neck model. A year later the two pickup 1449 was introduced and the "Amp-In-Case really took off. The 1449 is the most-rare of the breed, being replaced by the almost identical red burst 1457 in 1964. This guitar screams.

The reissue features a comfortable C shaped neck with a comfortable 12" radius and two way truss rod for accurate adjustment.

The single coil lipstick pickups are wound to the same specs as the original and the lipstick case provides excellent shielding for low noise and high signal.

The upgraded fully adjustable bridge loads the strings through the body for great response and thick resonant tone.
