The 1457 guitar setup, along with the 1448, epitomized the Silvertone mindset: the best that just a little money could buy. A great neck, a cool look, and a sound that artists are still finding irresistible.
From fantasies of yesterday ('That Thing You Do'), to a super active collector's market, right on to today's concert stage, the 1457 still rocks.

The 1457 guitar was, in its relatively short lifetime, a HUGE seller. I really believe the only reason we see more 1448s is because they were around longer. Of course, it's a great guitar, it's got the full smash of Nathan Daniel features: two pickups, cool concentric knobs, p/u selector switch, neck tilt adjustment, that cool red sparkle burst paint job and a great feel and balance to a very lightweight guitar.
