1967 Silvertone 1443 Danelectro) Bass guitar in Baton Rouge LA for $625

The seller gives some useful info about this bass but does he really have to convince us that it is cool?  C'mon?!  This model is the bass version of the vaunted Danelectro Hornet and it is awesome!  Just look at it - two lipstick pickups, cool heavy duty hardware and brushed metal knobs, aluminum nut, rosewood board.

You just don't see a lot of these Silvertone basses floating around in player ready condition.  This one is a real find.  Of course, I have no idea how well those lipstick pickups reproduce bass tones - but it's worth a look.

This is a Silvertone 1443, Solid body, electric bass guitar made by Danelectro circa 1967. It has a red-to-black burst finish with two lipstick pickups. It was made in Neptune New Jersey. It's far more rare than the single pickup model, which i also have in my collection.
The bass is in great condition for being forty five years old! The neck is straight with fast action. The neck is a bolt-on with two steel adjustable truss rods with rosewood fingerboard and 22- fret scale. Electronics all work correectly. The tuners are 100% original...nickel. There is a seam where the headstock joins the neck and paint is cracking, This was apparent when i bought the guitar back in 1991(21 years ago) and is rock solid, strictly a cosmetic issue. What a wonderful addition to your collection of great American bass guitars, build by hand, made by a great entrepreneur of the early electric bass.
This bass guitar was only offered from 1966 to 1968 by Sears and Robuck.
Asking $625
If interested call (225) ***-****

  1. I have a picture of me playing this model bass in 1973 with Kid Cruise and the Tbirds. I will try to join this site and see if I can post pics. I have a lot of vintage stuff that I would be glad to post and discuss. My Silvertone, I believe was a Danelectro Coral Bass. It was white with red pearloid pickguard. Thanks for the site!
