This Danelectro U1 was made in the USA in 1954. It is the earliest Danelectro we have seen, and one of only a few that has the earliest version "full bell" headstock. It also has early features like an aluminum neck, pre-lipstick pickup, and tweed covering (instead of painted finish). The guitar is all original and comes with the original case. The original owners (we assume brothers) write their names on the back of the guitar and on the case.
