Just picked this up as a garage sale.  Model 1448 guitar and amp case... guitar almost virgin with just a few stains.  Case has a couple of nicks, a cigarette burn and a hinge to be repaired.  Amp powers up, but just hums.....

So, what's it work and is it worth taking to someone to fix the amp?  Oh, btw, I get it for $ 15.

Score. I will give you 20 bucks for it.

:-)

Thanks Dan...but, no thanks. 

LOL!

Yes VERY much worth getting it fixed! Might be something as easy as a ground.

As far as what it's worth? Not sure. You could always Ebay it and see what other people have paid for the same thing.

Had one ,,, Got it when I worked for sears in "68 ...   This definitely a keeper ,, and I bet would b real simple to fix . They selling for goodly amount on E-Bay

amazing find!

And it's got a lipstick pickup in it, perfect for slide. Score!!!

Patrick, jst fired up the guitar thru my 1970's (St. Louis made) Crate tube amp and she absolutely sings.  one of the sweeter guitars that I've ever owned.  Now I'm sure that amp in the case is getting fixed....

Yeehaaa!!!!

Sam,

Keeper / fixer, fer sure: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/silvertone-amp-in-case

And I found the amp schematic, might help with diagnosis:

Nice score.

Oily, thanks for the schematic.  I'll probably let a "pro" do the repair, but I'll take the schematic with me to get the project started in the right direction.

You betcha. Wanna hear how it sounds when it's fixed.
