Mac DeMarco’s Silvertone 1448

Mac DeMarco started playing a black Silvertone guitar sometime around late 2019, and he seems to continue using it to this day as his main guitar. Based on the looks, the guitar is a vintage 60s Silvertone 1448 model.

This model came in two versions – 1449 which is the double-pickup model, and 1448, which is a single-pickup and the one Mac uses. Originally, these guitars were sold through Sears’s catalog and they came together with cases that had an amp built into them.
