Silvertone 1448 With Case Amp 1960s Black

Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $445$690

Starting in the mid-'50s, many guitars bearing the Silvertone brand name were produced by Danelectro. Silvertone was the in-house brand of Sears and were marketed as starter instruments. The 1448 included a single pickup guitar with an amplifier built right into the case. Later, Silvertone distributed a two-pickup version with a louder amp as the 1449. Having the amp case intact with the guitar is very important for collectors.
