This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-13)
Price : US $322.89
Up for auction is a wonderful vintage model 1448 Silvertone sold by Sears Roebuck and Co starting in 1963 it was made by Danelectro this is the guitar and the amp in case model. Unlike the model 1457 the 1448 had a single speaker and a single lipstick tube pickup, (a great trade mark to these guitars, there was an over stock on lipstick tubes in this era and that was what they decided to use them for there magnetized metal pickup). The serial number is 185.10010. I am no expert on guitars but a know a bit I will tell you all I see and be honest and as accurate as I can be, it is in nice condition and works good, it powers right up as soon as the tubes warm up and you can hear the guitar through the amp it isn't very loud which I don't assume it was meant to be. The guitar looks very nice the one thing I see to note is a bit of overspray on the neck it may of had some work at one point but the neck looks straight and strong. The case has some nicks and wear I pictured some and it is missing one snap and the handle. It looks very nice it isn't perfect but very well taken care of to have made it through the 60s till now. Please let me know if I can help further I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
