    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 opinion of this product?
    Amazing guitar for the price. I own a Fender custom shop Strat and a Les Paul...and this guitar holds its own against them. I have have not had any problems with strings popping out as another reviewer said. Here is my little secret....I had a Duncan little 59 PAF installed in the bridge...it just fits...so it does not spoil the look. This guitar is solid mahogany as is a Gibson SG...so with the pickup change this guitar sounds very much like an SG I once had. Yes folks with this set up...you can have a guitar that shreds like the best of them. Even with the pickup mod this guitar did not cost me much. I just love the look on other guitarist face when they hear it!!!!
