VGC 005 - The Silvertone Amp-in-Case

OK, yeah, I'm being a little cheesy posting pics of celebs with Silvertones, but you gotta love these! This one's for all my buddies over at the Vintage Silvertone Zone...

Today, we're discussing those oh-so-cool Danelectro-made amp-in-case models, the single pickup 1448 (seen with Melissa Etheridge), the double pickup 1457 (in Mick's capable hands), and the nearly extinct 1449 (just discovered this one myself; 1 pickup with a tremelo amp-case).
I don't go into any Dano history as we will surely cover that in a later show on a pure Dano model.
Our sources are a couple of great websites on Danelectro, the Vintage Guitars Info - Danelectro Silvertone & Coral page and the Silvertone Danelectro & DiPinto page. Please visit these...there is a ton of great info and cool pics to peruse.

As always, today's music comes from the Podsafe Music Network. Here's the lineup: "Guess She's Right" by Sonny Combs and Kitty Kat Rodeo, "Save the World" by The Clintons, "21 and Easy" by American Heartbreak, and "Something Better" by Porter Block. A hearty thank you to the bands for putting their music out there for podcast use. Please support them.
