A vintage classic revamped with some modern appointments.

Originally offered in 1963, the Silvertone 1478 was an instant favorite. The offset double cutaway body is made of solid mahogany with a maple top, for a deep rich tone with top end bite. The genuine Bigsby tremolo and adjustable steel bridge mean faultless intonation and better string attack - an improvement over the rosewood bridge and antiquated tremolo system on the original. We also paid special attention to the neck profile, improving it with a modern C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. This reissue is the real deal.

  • Vintage style with modern playability
  • Comfortable (and consistent) C-shaped neck with a precise and well-finished fret job
  • 2-way truss rod for accurate and dependable adjustment
  • Dual single-coil pickups reverse-engineered to the same specifications as the originals
  • Independant volume and tone controls
  • 3-way pickup selector
  • Fully adjustable bridge for accurate intonation
  • Authentic Bigsby tremolo tailpiece
  • Smooth individual tuners
  • Case not included
