Silvertone 1448 amp-in-case
Starting in the mid-'50s, many guitars bearing the Silvertone brand name were produced by Danelectro. Silvertone was the in-house brand of Sears and were marketed as starter instruments. The 1448 included a single pickup guitar with an amplifier built right into the case. Having the amp case intact with the guitar is very important for collectors.
The 1448 had a 4 year run it was introduced in the fall of 62' and was discontinued in the fall of 65'. Ours is in impeccable condition, not much wear , frets have plenty of life left and the tubes in the case are original Silvertone tubes.
