Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the Silvertone 1303 Silverburst Electric Guitar.
24" scale length. 1.69" nut width. .84" depth at 5th fret. 5 lbs 15 oz.
.75"-.91" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
The 1303/U2 guitar, first released by Silvertone in 1958, was one of the guitars that birthed a generation of guitarists.
This modern version is a stellar instrument, for any price point, and houses tones and playability that are hard to match.
The mahogany body has the famous 1303 single cutaway silhouette and is dressed in a super-slick retro Silverburst that simple glitters.
The light mahogany body is amazingly resonant and dynamic, and these stellar vibrations are captured by a pair of uber-musical single coil 'lipstick tube' pickups.
These magnetic wonders are tonally diverse, with range for anything from sparkling cleans to down and dirty rock tones - each getting its own volume and tone via stacked pots.
The mahogany neck, finished in the same silverburst gloss, is a dream to play.
The shortened 24" scale, along with the fast glossy finish, creates a guitar that is stunningly easy to play.
The decreased string tension virtually eliminates play fatigue.
A killer playing experience.
The Silvertone 1303 U2 Silverburst Electric Guitar - just one of those great guitars.
