This is a Silvertone 1478, circa 1965, solid body made by Harmony of Chicago. The guitar is a Fender Jaguar knock-off with two hot DeArmond pick ups, mother-of-pearl inlays on neck, and whammy bar. The finish is a red burst and is very clean with a few minor scratches and nicks. There is some minor shrinkage on the pick guard and one of the tuning pegs poles has been replaced. All the electronics work properly and the neck is straight. The action is set fast. It includes the original case.
Here's the original description from the 1966 Sears catalog:
