1964 Silvertone 1457
This product is currently sold out.
1964 Sears Silvertone Model 1457 "Amp-in-Case" student model electric guitar and original tube amplifier built into the case. Manufactured in the USA by Danelectro for the Sears exclusive "Silvertone" line of instruments, this guitar sports the classic hollow Masonite and poplar body with a pair of "lipstick" single coil pickups. Available only from late 1964-1966, the 1457 is a fairly uncommon model in tone and feel, this instrument is arguably a substantial upgrade over the 1448 model. The most notable improvements are a longer, more traditional 24.75" scale length, and an additional pickup for significantly more tonal breadth!
This set is complete, right down to the original 1/4" cable and its original Silvertone tube set. Skate Key tuning machines turn smoothly and hold pitch well,
The amplifier case is in very nice overall shape, with original wicker grill cloth, stock Jensen speaker and clean faceplate. The dark gray sparkle case retains the original hinges and handle, and is structurally sound! The tremolo on the amp has a very strong and variable pulse to it, and the speaker is the original ceramic Jensen, which sounds particularly good and has a its '64 date code! -
Exactly like Mick Jagger's. Cleaned, polished, fingerboard oiled/cleaned and ready to go. -
