This is a Silvertone 1303 (Danelectro model: U2) electric guitar made by Danelectro in 1958. It has a black finish with two lipstick pickups and a semi-hollow body. This guitar was made in Neptune New Jersey. It's far more rare than the single pickup models. This guitar is in great condtion for a fifty year old axe! The neck is straight with nice fast action. The electronics all work correctly. The tuners are 100% original and work excellently. It has minor nicks and playing wear on the back of the neck. But overall, it's in very nice shape. This guitar feels great and sounds incredible. If you're a player or collector this is the guitar you've always wanted! It comes with a new hardshell case.Description from VintageSilvertones.com
