Additional info
This is the original Silvertone 1452 model, introduced in 1966 and retired in 1968. In an interview, Mark said: "I got into these guitars in a big way through knowing Mike Henderson. The last time I played with him in a Nashville club, women danced on the tables.”

Mark used this in the studio for Boom, like that (Shangri-La 2004), Stand up guy (Shangri-La 2004), Don't crash the ambulance (Shangri-La 2004). On the Shangri-La tour in 2005, he used it on stage to play Boom, like that.
