My first electric love

I bought a guitar exactly like this from a fellow employee at a tv repair shop in 1977. I paid him $50 when he brought it to work. It had been in the attic of his family home in Arlington, Virginia. It was in dead perfect condition. It was my first electric. I put a lot of practice time on that guitar. After a year or so I started adding “improvements”. It ended up with new tuning machines, a 70’s PAF, Badass bridge, Strat style switch and an extra volume. I also modded the amplifier (I still use the amp and speaker combo for recording). It has been my test bed for guitar And amp mods. It seems horrific to many the mods it’s had but it wasn’t anything but a white elephant at garage sales. These are incredibly sweet guitars amp combos. The guitars are well designed considering the era they came from. The necks don’t have truss rods but the have two rectangular steel rods running the length of the neck. I’ve seen bunches of these over the years since and never a bad neck. The fretboard is extremely flat which makes it slide heaven. The bodies are very strong as well. The amplifiers are single ended with a pair of 12AX7s , a 6X4 rectifier and a 6V6 output tube. They have a really happening tremolo to my ears better than a Fender opto tremolo IMHO. Unlike many of it's siblings it has power transformer. This makes it safer. The non-power transformer units were potential death traps. It’s easy and cheap to add an isolation Transformer if you want to play one. I wholeheartedly give the Silvertone 1449 guitar and amp combo a thumbs up. I’ve been an electronicst since the early 60’s when I fixed my grandmother’s five tube standard AM radio. Take my word for It this is the bomb. Enjoy any Silvertone 1449 You can afford this is truly something that should be used. IMHO
