Vintage Silvertone Model 1448 Guitar And Guitar Amp In Case Combo
You need to hit the road. You need to stay home. What could be better to have with you then an affordable vintage Silvertone guitar that plugs into a matching amp built into the guitar case. Is that not the coolest things ever conceived? Ok, that's taking it a bit far but it's right up there in the quirky guitar world of the 60's!
This is a Silvertone Model 1448 Guitar and Amp Combo. One of the most clever and well-known concepts in the early ’60s guitar boom was the Silvertone Amp-in-case line. For well under $100, you could get a guitar that came in a case featuring a 5-watt tube amp built right in. Just open the case halfway, stand it up, switch it on, and wail.
This Silvertone guitar from the '60s has a great offset body, stylish headstock, and of course a classic Silvertone lipstick pickup, which gives you a brighter articulation than regular single-coil pickups. This decades old classic is in rock solid condition and ready to rock. The guitar has been fully set up, and plays beautifully, giving you a classic sound and tone.
The amp works fine (a rare find for these). Does it give you the power of a full Marshall stack? No, but that's not why you're lookingat this! The amp actually sounds surprisingly good and provides the opportunity to have an all-encompassing package!
