One of the most clever and well-known concepts in the early '60s guitar boom was the Silvertone Amp-in-case line. For a modest price you could get a guitar that came in a case featuring a tube amp built right in. The original model 1448 guitar in the 1962 kit was a single pickup, short-neck model. A year later, the 2-pickup 1449 was introduced and the Amp-in-case really took off! Sought after by players and collectors alike the 1449 is the most rare of its breed. Now you can own one with modern upgrades that every player will appreciate.
The Silvertone 1449 Reissue has lipstick single-coil pickups that really scream! Wound to the same specs as the originals, the lipstick case provides unmattched shielding for low noise and high output.
The original 1449 had mid-centiry hardware that just doesn't meet modern standards. The Silvertone 1449 Reissue is upgraded with a fully adjustable bridge that loads the strings through the body for great response and a thick resonant tone.
While the original 1449 had a comfortable neck it had a relatively flat fingerboard. The Silvertone 1449 Reissue features a comfortable 'C' shaped neck with a modern 12" fingerboard radius that you'll really enjoy playing. The neck also features a two-way truss rod for accurate and dependable adjustment.
