Silvertone: 6 String Baritone Bass Guitar
Circa 1958

Silvertone baritone, made in Neptune, NJ, 1958, gleaming black lacquer finish, 2 pickups This is a UB2 six string baritone bass guitar made for Silvertone by Danelectro of Neptune, NJ in 1958. It is a single cutaway, solid center construction with a Masonite top and back on a pine frame. This UB2 also features a Gleaming Black lacquer finish, ivory colored vinyl binding on the body, a clear, plastic pickguard with a perimeter stripe, dual stacked concentric white plastic knobs, a 4 way adjustable chrome plated brass bridge with a Brazilian rosewood saddle, two lipstick tube pickups, two white plastic strap pins and a Coke bottle headstock. The UB2 guitars were part of Danelectro's "U" series models and were only produced between the years 1956 and 1958. This rare beauty still looks and sounds fantastic after approximately sixty years. Even the original burst on the neck has been restored. Duane Eddy has used a Danelectro baritone on a few of his hits in the early 1960s. Brian Wilson has also featured the sound of the baritone guitar on a few Beach Boy hits. Other musicians, such as Jimmy Rodgers and Glenn Campbell have baritones on their recorded music as well. Heavy metal and other rock musicians have used the baritone to achieve a heavier, darker feel to their music. With its terrific tone and feel, this particular instrument plays and sounds fantastic.Description from
