Product Description

A reissue of Silvertone’s 1963 original, the Silvertone Classic 1478 Electric Guitar is a unique electric guitar design that offers  a unique sound and playing experience brought to you by a double cut mahogany body, mahogany C-shape neck and vintage single coils. The 1478 inspires musical expression brought to you by a legacy of players who used the much loved original when recording and gigging.

Silvertone Classic 1478 Electric Guitar Features
  • Double Cutaway Mahogany body
  • Mahogany C shape bolt on neck with dual action truss rod
  • 20 Fret, Rosewood fingerboard
  • Two vintage single coil pickups
  • Bigsby tremolo
So, what changed?
The offset double cutaway body is made of solid Mahogany with a maple top, for a deep rich tone with top end bite. The genuine Bigsby tremolo and adjustable steel bridge mean faultless intonation and better string attack - an improvement over the rosewood bridge and antiquated tremolo system on the original. The neck profile is improved with a modern C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. The individual machine heads are another improvement over the original - the results which both you and your audience will appreciate.

The philosophy behind the Silvertone Classic line is to respect the original vintage designs while improving on previous manufacturing limitations through modern engineering, parts and craftsmanship and most importantly, the opinions of modern guitar players. In other words, vintage vibe for the modern player.
