POST # 461 Ebay Price Guide - Vintage Late 50's Danelectro U2 Electric Guitar Dano
Here's a nice blast from the past...scroll to the bottom to see how much it sold for!
Location of Manufacture:USA
Fingerboard Wood: Rosewood
Finish Color: Black
Pickup/Control Layout: 2 x Lipstick pickups, 2 vol, 2 tone, 3 way switch
Features: Includes Chip Board Case.
Condition: This is a sweet old Dano! It is in excellent condition for its age. Aside from the missing tuner ferrule it is all original and all complete! The CTS pots date to 1957, but there is also a stamp of "Nov 15, 1956" on the inside of the guitar (pics) so we know it was a late 50's model. The old Lipstick pickups sound so awesome!! All electronics work well and this guitar rocks! It has some play wear on the back of the neck and the back of the body, where there is a finish blemish in the middle (pics). There is some expected fret wear from a 50+ year old guitar, but they still have plenty of meat left, and this truly is a great player. It has a good neck with low action. The neck is straight. The top looks so clean you would never believe this is a 53 year old guitar. It would be a stellar addition to any collection, and its at a price you CANNOT refuse! Its ready to go!
Winning bid: US $665.55
