A really cool 1965 Silvertone 1448 Amp in Case outfit. This cool Danelectro built Guitar came with its cool Amp in Case back in 1962 and they were retired early in 1967. A very short run…

I cannot date this guitar. Its as early as a 1962 or as late as a 1966. They couple said they bought it in 1965 so I am going with that. I checked under the pickguard and the wiring harness is still encased in the original copper foil so I left it alone. Its one of these years.. Check out the serial number on the amp…see pic 16...looks earlier than 1963 to me but who knows!

This Guitar and Amp set is outstanding. The guitar plays great with an awesome Pro Setup with low easy to play action. The Danelectro Lipstick Pickup sounds large and in charge. It is very strong. The guitar has very little wear ..This was a single owner guitar that had been stored for a really long time. This couple remembered buying it for their son and he didn’t play it much at all. The frets are in fantastic shape. Hardly a pick scratch on this beauty. The white tolex side covering as as white as the day it was made…Really clean guitar and it plays and sounds great! Fresh setup with new 10’s so she is ready to ROCK!

I checked out the amp and it is in as nice of shape as the guitar. These amps are not power houses. Not very loud but designed to head to your buddies home and jam without having the parents kick you out for playing TOO LOUD! LOL… All original as the guitar and it even has the power cord restraint strap. Check out those pics!

Here is some info on these cool guitar outfits from a respected Website Silvertone World…

The 1448 is the one; the guitar that pretty much sums up the entire Dano/Silvertone philosophy in one package. It's the guitar you certainly see the most of... that's because Sears sold a boatload of them from late 1962 until '66 or so, when they were replaced by the 1451.

The preferred axe of and , and the secret weapon for guitarists the world over. Ladies and gentlemen, the elegant awesomeness of the Silvertone 1448. A true master stroke of genius from Nathan Daniel and Joe Fisher of Danelectro Fame.

Introduced: late 1962

Retired:1966/early '67

The frets are hardly used on this guitar. It will give you years of playing pleasure. All original and setup to play right out of the box.

You will love this cool 1960’s Guitar outfit!

Sold as-is as they are both vintage and used but…I have been hand picking vintage guitars for my customers for over 17 years now. They have all loved their instruments I find. This cool guitar and amp will not be an exception.  Check my Feedbacks!
