SILVERTONE 1452-AMP-IN-CASE - 1968 - DANELECTRO/CORAL

This is a 1968 Silvertone made by Danelectro's Coral division. This is the higher-end two pick up amp-in-case model. I believe it's the last Danelectro's made for Sears. This guitar has two lipstick pickups. The amp has inputs for two guitars. The tremolo is incredible on this amp. It produces a sweet sound that can be controlled with the speed adjustment. The guitar and amplifier are fully functional.

This guitar is in excellent condition for it's age. There are a few nicks and the finish is cracking in places but that only adds to it's character. All the electronics work properly and it ROCKS! I've been using the amplifier and the sound is sweet! The Tremolo/Speed adjustments give a crazy sound! Plus it's got two Danelectro Lipstick pickups for that rocking vintage sound. The body style is like that of a Jaguar.

Here's the original description from the 1968 Sears catalog:
