Silvertone / Model 1457 2-Pickup Electric Guitar W. Tube Amp In Case - Sparkly Redburst / 1963 / Sparkly Redburst / Guitar For Sale


Offered here is one of the famous "amp in case" sets sold by the catalogue store SEARS back in the early Sixties from 1963-66 under the Silvertone label, a model 1457.

It consists of a 2 pickup guitar built by Danelectro (labeled SILVERTONE) manufactured for Sears and it comes in unique hardshell case that accommodates a remarkable small tube amp with speaker for a complete musician's package.

The specimen offered in this listing is in very good condition for its age as can be seen in the numerous pictures posted. It is in remarkable condition for being an over 55 year old instrument.

The body of the 1457, and most Danelectro guitars from this time period, is constructed with a solid Pine center plank and rim with Masonite top and back. It's a really unique design that was easy to manufacture, affordable, light weight, and has a distinctive feel and tone. The edge of the body is wrapped in a textured material that provides a little friction to keep the edge of the guitar in place when played sitting down. It's finished in a very cool red burst lacquer with metal flake sparkles throughout.
The neck construction is one of a kind with its Poplar neck,  Rosewood fretboard, Aluminum nut, and two metal stabilizing rods inlayed between the Rosewood fretboard and Poplar neck which is a remarkably stable design.
