Silvertone Danelectro U-1 in twin Falls, ID for $375 w Orig case

This seller is offering a 50+ year old Silvertone U-1 made by Danelectro. This one looks mostly original save the Vol and Tone control knobs which can be found and replaced if you are so inclined.  That said, the value of these old Danelectro's is not so much in their 100% original condition (unlike a Fender or Gibson) but in their playability and tone if they have been maintained well over the years.  People don't hang Danelectro's on their wall to admire - they play 'em, sometimes damned hard!  I've seen several Indie and Alt Country guitarists over the years grab one of these U-1's off a stand and unleash monster licks wit a slide.

condition: good
For sale is a late 1950s Silvertone Guitar made by Danelectro, U1 guitar. These guitar are becoming more and more difficult to find, especially ones in good, playable shape. This specific guitar is (in my opinion) perfectly aged, showing some gorgeous wear from a life of playing, but still in great working shape. Great jazz or blues guitar (it makes a stellar slide guitar). Tone & Volume pots have been professionally cleaned up and work with no glitches, playing through the single lipstick pickup. Original hardshell case comes with it, including the original cord sold with these guitars and a vintage tuner. A true piece of American music history.
