Starting in the mid-’50s, most guitars bearing the Silvertone brand name were produced by Danelectro. Silvertone was the in-house brand of Sears and was marketed to beginner guitarists. In 1963, Silvertone distributed a two-pickup version of the earlier amp-in-case model as the 1457. While the guitar was sold with an amp-in-case, many have survived without the amp intact. Having the amp case intact with the guitar is important for collectors.
This one is in impeccable condition with the amp working and the footswitch included as well as the original strap! We just did a pro setup on it so its ready to go. Definitely one for the collectors.
