Product Description

The Model 1449 reissue from Silvertone features a comfortable C shaped neck with a comfortable 12 inch radius and two way truss rod for accurate adjustment. The single coil lipstick pickups are wound to the same specs as the original and the lipstick case provides excellent shielding for low noise and high signal. The upgraded fully adjustable bridge loads the strings through the body for great response and thick resonant tone.

One of the most clever and well known concepts in the early ‘60s guitar boom was the Silvertone Amp-In-Case guitar. Just open the case half way, stand it up, switch it on and wail! The original guitar in the 1962 kit was a single pickup, short neck model. A year later the two pickup 1449 was introduced and the Amp-In-Case really took off. The 1449 is the most-rare of the breed, being replaced by the almost identical red burst 1457 in 1964. This guitar screams.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
Great looking guitar, plays about as well as a guitar in it's price range can! But if you're looking at this guitar, you are like me----looks over playability. This isn't a shredding guitar, it's for banging out garage licks!! There is only one issue that needs to be addressed: you'll have to install a string tree on the high E and B strings. If you don't, the E string WILL pop out of the nut if you play hard at all. This is a simple fix that should only cost $25 at a guitar shop. But the angle and length that the E string has to run at is pretty crazy. Also if you look at pictures of old real 1449 guitars that are playable, most have a string tree installed. So should you buy it?? YES. Then run it over to a guitar tech to set it up!
