Original Silvertone U1 1300
Based on the pickup placement and no selector switch this dates the guitar to 1959 or so. It has the Dan-O sound and plays great, but it certainly was not a case queen.
This one is rough around the edges, literally. The top of the headstock looks like the neighbors puppy got ahold of it. The pickguard was clearly removed some time ago, the tuners function but a couple of the peg stems are crooked. The lipstick pickup housing shows some rust, but the pickup itself is not affected. The volume and tone controls are not original
If you are looking for a gigging U1 or appreciate not having to worry about nicks and dings this is the one for you. No sugar coating, it has the soul and stories of a 60+ year-old guitar and the character to go along with it.
