Return of a Classic
The original Silvertone 1449 Electric Guitar became a go-to starter guitar for aspiring musicians, not just for the guitar itself, but for the famous amplifier built into the case. Moving into the 1970s, Silvertone fell out of style to more visually simplistic guitars, but the return came when garage rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys began playing similarly retro instruments. Later, the vintage Silvertones sold themselves to the likes of Bon Iver, Beck, and Mark Knopfler. Now, the reissue brings a new version ready to influence a new breed of modern guitarists.
The double cut, angular outskirt with an oversized pick guard is one that will turn heads for all the right reasons, and is identical to the original. The high colour contrast with the intricate silver flake gives the Silvertone 1449 reissue a vintage vibe. As prominent as the shape is, it doesn't interrupt the playability, so your playing will get as much attention as your guitar's design.
Boutique Carl DeArmond Pickups
The highly influential 1449 was originally outfitted with unique single coil lipstick pickups. However, the 1449 PO1 comes with a pair of highly regarded and prestigious MCD Silver Foil pickups for a truly beautiful sound. The large steel plates provide a bigger magnetic field that pickups up more of the string movement that is often lost with separate pole-piece pickup designs. Based on the original DeArmond design that could be found in some of the vintage Silvertone Jupiters (Silvertone 1423), the Silver Foils are a true rarity and a treasure in their own right.
Updated, Refined Features
As brilliant as Silvertone guitars were, they lost favour for their inconsistent fretwork and necks. This reissue has resolved this problem with a modern C neck shape, and an all-round more reliable build quality to ensure your guitar plays well. The body is Mahogany whilst the top is Maple to keep the tone deep and rich, with a twang at the top end for extra flare. The 1449 reissue also features a modernised, fully adjustable bridge to supply a thick, resonant tone.
