Danelectro U2 ’56 Reissue Electric Guitar – Original Coral Finish 1998

Danelectro U2 ’56 Reissue Electric Guitar – Original Coral Finish 1998

This is a 1998 Danelectro U2 ’56 reissue dual pickup, hollow body guitar. It is in coral finish and in near-mint condition.

This guitar is very cool looking and it sounds amazing! The tone is exactly what you want it to be like. This comes from the combination of a hollow body and lipstick pickups. Ronnie Wood, Steve Perry, and Mark Knopfler all played Danelectro U2s.

It has such a classic look and the color makes it pop and really stand out.

FREE SHIPPING is available on this item.

Features & Construction:

The guitar is pretty light and user friendly to play. The volume/tone controls are built into to each other. The white part of the knob turns independently from the darker part.

The guitar body is actually hollow with a masonite-type construction on top and bottom.

The lipstick pickups have a unique sound and are wired in series instead of parallel. The pickups finish off this classic guitar’s look.

Condition:

  • The neck is straight and the action is very good.
  • The guitar is in near-mint condition with only one minor ding at the top of the body (see pictures), and very minor small dents at the top of the headstock on the back side (see pictures).
  • There is a small mark of some sort on the cream part of the cutaway (see pictures).

Dimensions:
– Overall length: 39 1/2 “”
– Body width: 13 1/4″
– Fretboard length: 18 1/2″
– Neck width at narrowest point near top nut: 41mm
– Body depth: 1 5/8″
