Seeking the instructional album that originally came with this guitar/amp, please contact me if you have one in good condition!
This 1448 is black with a silver glitter finish on the front and back of the guitar as well as the entire case! One tear in the vinyl edging and one scratch on the back of the guitar, otherwise all original and in excellent condition. The amp-in-case (a mighty 3 watts!) works and still had the original Silvertone branded tubes and the original grey instrument cord included. The screened panel on the outside of the case protects the speaker.
This is an easy to play, great sounding little guitar that was aimed at the beginner market but has found a following with experienced players due to it’s ¾ size and chiming tone. The tuning keys are the only shortcoming, they do slip and require frequent retuning. A lot of kids got one of these for Christmas or birthday presents when they were sold through the Sears catalog from 1961-66 for $67.95, including a 45 r.p.m. how-to-play album. Does anyone still have the record?
