Looking to sell, not trading at this time.
You’ve always wanted one. Here is your chance to own one.
A really cool 1967 Silvertone 1451 Amp in Case outfit. This cool Hornet style Guitar came with its cool Amp in Case back in 1967 and they were retired in 1968. A very short run…
Lipstick Pickup sounds large and in charge. It is very strong.
The guitar is structurally sound and in overall very good condition. The amplifier is fully functional. The guitar is all original, including the original rosewood bridge. This guitar and amp has been recently service and gone thru by a Guitar and Amp technician. The tubes are good and sounds great well. Clean and Crip. Please note: For your safety, the amplifier is retrofitted with a new electrical cord. It can only plug into an Isolation Transformer adapter box. Added benefit is the original On/Off switch can be used as a standby.
It had rebel flags on the pick guard. I removed them and the adhesive residue. Upon doing so I scrapped up the pick-guard a bit, see pics. I bought a new pick-guard, included, but I like the original better.
There are nicks and scratches. This is not Mint or Excellent condition so if that is what you what don’t buy this one. I would say this is fair condition for its age. Any questions at all on this combo just ask. I tell it like it is. This combo is a friend favorite. Anyone comes by, when I break it out and play it, they can’t stop smiling. It is a lot of fun to see and play.

General info is in italics below, snagged from the ‘Net.
The 1451 was a true solidbody from Danelectro. This guitar was the successor to the very popular 1448 amp-in-case combo. The swoopy headstock is the same as the 1448, although a 'thick script' logo is now seen, and we keep the simple mid-placed pickup and volume/tone electronics package.
The body is solid, unlike the Masonite and poplar 1448 and 1457, and is reminiscent of a Fender Mustang, or even a Strat. Also, like its semi-sold siblings, there is a glittery sparkle to the paint job.
Introduced: Spring / Summer 1967
Retired: Spring / Summer 1968
