  • Description

    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 single-coil pickups of the 1478 are wound to the same specifications as the originals. Silvertone reverse-engineered the old pickups and duplicated the wire, windings, magnets and materials as closely as possible.

    The original 1478 had a less-than-modern bridge, tailpiece and tuners. The Silvertone Classic 1478 Reissue has a fully adjustable bridge, an authentic Bigsby tremolo tailpiece and smooth individual tuners. 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.

    Sadly neck shapes and fret jobs were inconsistent on the original 1478. The Classic 1478 Reissue features a comfortable (and consistent) 'C' shaped neck with a precise and well finished fret job. The neck is coupled to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. The neck also features a two-way truss rod for accurate and dependable adjustment. This Silvertone Classic 1478 Reissue is the real deal.
