Return of a Classic
The original Silvertone 1478 Electric Guitar became the go-to starter guitar for aspiring musicians, and featured its strikingly dramatic, spaceship design in all catalogues. Moving into the 1970s, Silvertone returned to more visually simple guitars, but the return came when garage rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys began playing similarly retro instruments. Later, the vintage Silvertones found themselves in the hands of Bon Iver, Beck, Mark Knopfler and many more, and now the reissue brings an updated version to influence many more guitarists to come.
Few guitars are as striking as the offset Silvertone 1478. The double cut, angular outskirt with an oversized pick guard will turn heads for all the right reasons, and is identical to the original. As prominent as the shape is, it doesn’t interrupt the playability, so your playing will be as eye catching as your guitar’s design.
Classic Single Coil Pickups
One of the most influential features on the original Silvertone electric guitars was the pickups' single coil twang and spring. The tone was easily recognisable, and sought after by many blues and country artists. The Reissue has identical replicas of the originals, so the tone is accessible to a whole new generation. Also retained is the Blender tone knob, which became a classic feature allowing players to merge between all pickup settings for limitless tone variations.
Updated, Refined Features
As brilliant as Silvertone guitars were, they lost marks for their inconsistent fretwork and necks. The Reissue has resolved this problem with a modern C neck shape, and an all-round more reliable build quality. The body is Mahogany whilst the top is Maple to keep the tone deep and rich, with a twang at the top end for extra flare. The 1478 Reissue also features a genuine Bigsby Tremolo bridge system for a more even, trustworthy flux.
SubZero Tube-20R Guitar Amp
Retro Looks and Sound
The SubZero Tube-20R offers great retro looks with a sound to match. The two Electro Harmonix 6BQ5 tubes give this amp a classic distinctive chiming, articulate treble sound. These are matched perfectly with the three 12AX7 valves, which break up quickly and clearly, giving a great vintage crunch. The Spring Reverb adds an additional shimmer to the amp's classic jangle, valve crunch and warmth.
Celestion Speaker for a Wide Range of Sounds and Styles
The SubZero Tube-20R comes loaded with a Celestion Seventy 80 speaker, which offers a punchy, aggressive upper mid range, tightly controlled low end, and a subtly increased top end. In combination with the three band EQ, you'll be able to find the right sound for your guitar and musical style.
