GSTV gets up close with a rare vintage classic - the Silvertone Amp In Case
With its lipstick tube pickups and three-watt amp built into the case, the Silvertone Amp In Case was an affordable entry-level model that is rumored to have been the first electric guitar ever owned by the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. During our recent visit to the National Guitar Museum, GSTV’s Brian Lippey got the lowdown on this unique Danelectro guitar and all-in-one package, that was originally available for just $67.95.
The Beat Dolls are a rocking ska/punk trio from Austin, Texas. Front by singer/guitarist Angie, the band also features Barry on bass and Mike on drums. With Angie writing the majority of the lyrics, the Beat Dolls belt out three-minute pop-punk rock numbers filled with wit, sarcasm, humor, and just a touch of madness. We think the band’s garage-punk vibe is well-represented in this video for “Walking Dead.”
