A genuine Brigsby tremolo and adjustable steel bridge provide flawless intonation and improved attack over the original model, along with an improved neck profile and joint system for enhanced sustain. The warmly articulate Silvertone 1478 is also equipped with exact replica single-coil pickups for an authentic vintage sound.
