Danelectro 56U2 Reissue
PREVIOUS OWNER REPORTS: (Denny's Note: This owner report was taken directly from Danelectro promotional material): Turn on M-TV or go to a concert and you'll see today's top artists still playing those great Danelectro guitars of the 50's. If you can find an original, you'll pay thousands. Now Danelectro re-issues the guitar that changed the face of music: The legendary U2. Known for it's amazing tone, the U2 guitar was a instant hit when it first appeared in 1956. Thousands of recordings from the 50's and 60's feature its "signature sound." Our re-issue 56-U2 features the incredible Lipstick pickups, dual stacked tone and volume controls, great playability, and cool vintage looks. Thousands of players are waiting for the chance to buy one!
Denny's note: I guess the previous owner was a "star" of some sort. Decals are not terribly difficult to remove with a bit of careful teasing with warm soapy water and finish-innocuous light oil. This U2 is in real good shape as is it's tweed Danelectro hardshell case. Aqua burst is a very nice looking Dano paint scheme. The bridge is turned in the pictures because the guitar was not strung when the previous owner took the picture; The centered rear bridge mount screw secures the bridge from the top, while the front of the bridge sits on the front 2 screws via string tension when strung, leaving it loose when unstrung, like in the picture.
PRICE IS WITHOUT THE DANELECTRO TWEED HARDSHELL CASE SHOWN.
THE HARDSHELL CASE IS SOLD SEPARATELY; $125.
It is in Excellent or better condition.
