One of the most clever and well-knownconcepts in the early ™60s guitar boom was the Silvertone Amp-in-caseline. For well under $100, you could get a guitar that came in a casefeaturing a 5-watt (later, 6-watt) tube amp built right in. Just openthe case halfway, stand it up, switch it on, and wail. The originalguitar in the 1962 kit (1448) was a single pickup, short-neck model. Ayear later, the 2-pickup 1449 was introduced and the Amp-in-case reallytook off. The 1449 is the most rare of the breed, being replaced by thealmost identical redburst 1457 in 1964. This guitar screams. Body
