Re: 5 color band resistor question
This sounds all wrong.  
 
28 Meg is a VERY high value, I can't recall running into anything over 10 meg in my 50 years on the bench. ANything is possible.  
 
FOur stripe codes are common enough today, but back when Silvertone was making amps they were not.  
 
Neither 28 nor 38 are on the standard value list. That seems odd too.  
 
If you want to measure it, pull it out of circuit - unhook one end. With all the other stuff in a circuit, you cant get a good reading of something that high. Now measure it.  
 
Where is this resistor in the circuit?
