The Silvertone 1449 Reissue is a snapshot of the iconic 'amp-in-case' guitar of the late 1960's.

This reissue captures the vibe and look of those originals, but with a few modern updates and increased overall quality.
The mahogany body has the famous silhouette and is covered in a slick retro red burst with silver flake.
This light and resonant body has excellent natural sustain and projection, and when that natural tone is captured by the single coil lipstick pickups the magic happens.
These pickups are wound to the same specs as the originals from the 60's yielding amazingly authentic vintage tones.
The lipstick case provides perfect shielding for a low noise, high output pickup, and these puppies live up to all the hype.
Tones are open and brilliant, with superb 'hollowness' when combined.
Blues tones are stellar and classic rock voicings simply scream.
The 1449 has been updated with a mahogany neck with a C profile and a rosewood board with a 12" radius for the utmost in playing comfort and ease.
This Silvertone reissue also features the modern-day upgrade of fully adjustable bridge with string-through-body design for wonderful sustain and vibration transfer.
The Silvertone 1449 is an amazing resurrection of an iconic guitar that has the modern day upgrades players demand.
Don't pass this by.
