Silvertone Classic 1478 Electric Guitar

That guitar -- is it vintage? No, its Silvertone's revival of a 1963 classic. Single-coils and a Bigsby tremolo take the 1478 guitar into the 21st century.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape

Just like the original back in 1963, the Silvertone 1478 electric guitar offers a unique sound and playing experience that will inspire you to express yourself the same way as the rock icons that played the originals did. The philosophy behind the Silvertone Classic line is to respect the original vintage designs while improving on previous manufacturing limitations through modern engineering, parts and craftsmanship and most importantly, the opinions of modern guitar players. In other words, vintage vibe for the modern player.
