The 1475 was
the end of the line for the Silvertone name as applied to musical instruments.
Sears had stopped using the name in its catalog descrips long ago, and by 1969,
you'd likely as not get a guitar with a Space dot, a block logo, or maybe a last,
lovely Silvertone script logo.

The 1475 was a well-appointed and nicely-built Japanese-made (looks like it's related to the Univox 'Coily') clone of one of the well-known Gretsch 'Country Gentleman' 6122. George Harrison famously played one on the first Sullivan appearances and set the look for guitarists in the 60s. With its goldtone trim, woodtone-inlaid whammy, side fret markers, and neat, tight fit and finish, the 1475 showed that a Japanese-made guitar need not be a wonky affair.
