The 1448 model number applied to both the guitar and the amplifier in this iconic setup. What could be cooler? A guitar case that opened up to a slick guitar inside and the amp to plug it into, all in one compact case! So many artists still seek and employ the 1448 (and its 2-pickup siblings, the rare 1449 and the more common 1457) that it's not hard to find them in contemporary music. From Beck to Dex Romweber to George Harrison, these Masonite Miracles are the instruments that scream SILVERTONE!

The 1448 is arguably the most recognized
Silvertone setup, and the one that comes to mind for most folks when they think
of Silvertone guitars and amps. This is only proper, for the 1448 embodied
everything we love about these music machines. Innovative engineering, funky
style, and doggone it, a great sound!
