The 1445 was a Kay-built semi-hollow body with Les Paul™ looks and a curly maple top. It had those soap-bar sized 'speed bump' pickups, and knobs galore. The catalog listings all say 'black back,' but as these photos show, the good-looking blonde was on the back of this guitar as well.
The Kay so-called 'Speed Demon' was a close cousin to this snazzy Silvertone. Check the last row of pictures for this brownburst guitar.
