Silvertone Amp-in-case Guitar

More or less how thick is the rosewood piece on the bridge? Mine was missing and I made a piece of brass fit, but I think it's too high. How much clearance from stings to last fret? Thanks

Here comes my kagoul rustling...

From memory, I think the Silvertone 1482 is a 6L6GC amp (I know the 1484 is). If I'm wrong, it'll be smaller wattage and powered by 6V6GTs. Either way, the glass of choice would be RCA blackplates (YMMV, naturally).

WRT the Silvertone 1448L amp-in-case model

I have one of these little gems. I have placed a fairly comprehensive review on Harmony Central's website.


This link provides replacement bridges for the original design ... and yes, despite a previous reply, it really is a Brazilian Rosewood slide block on the bridge! There is also an after-market adjustable bridge for the Danelectros that suits this guitar as well = a real bonus, as it simplifies re-stringing the guitar, and makes setting the intonation easier and more accurate. I have purchased one ... awaiting its arrival. I will add another post to Harmony Central when I have finished installing the new bridge!
