Derek Trucks’ 1960s Silvertone 1457

Derek was seen playing a red Silvertone occasionally in the earlier years, circa 2007. The story behind this guitar is unfortunately unknown.

Derek Trucks playing a Silvertone 1457 at the Klein Auditorium, Bridgeport, CT in 2007.

The Silvertone 1457 was produced from 1964 to 1966, and it was originally sold through the Sears catalog together with a case that had a built-in amp (see Silvertone World for more info).
