Silvertone-Danelectro U1/1317 - single pickup black electric guitar 1957 This is an awesome Dan Armstrong Modified Danelectro electric guitar assembled by Dan Armstrong in late 1969 from a batch of "New Old Stock" Danelectro necks and bodies that he acquired after the closing of the Neptune, New Jersey Danelectro factory. Made with the "U" series Danelectro single cutaway body, this guitar has all of the typical Dan Armstrong modifications including: the two lipstick pickups wired together and encapsulated in a tough epoxy shell; the four-way adjustable bridge; and the silk-screened logo on the clear, plastic pickguard. This guitar features the white sticker on the cover of the rear control cavity that tells the serial number, which is in the high double digits, and factory location. It is believed that approximately 200 to 400 of these were made including basses. This beauty is in fine playing or collecting condition and it comes with its original hard shell case. Grab it quick! It will be hard to find another one this nice!
