1950's Silvertone Danelectro U-1 in Milwaukee for $575

Nice colelctor's piece here - vintage U-1 in original unmolested shape. These can be nice players as well so I recommend them especially for bright chimey electric slide tones. The seller seems to know the value and worth of this guitar but is still offering it ata reasonable price.

* Late 1950's Silvertone / Danelectro Model U-1 six string guitar with its original case.
* Plays well / straight neck / low action.
* Strong single coil lipstick pickup.
* All of the parts are original.
* Original black finish with the early Dano headstock design.
* There was a small sticker (store sticker?) on the headstock at one time and there are scuffs and scratches to the body.
* A well made guitar that has stood the test of time and should play and sound great for another 50 years!

I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
