Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. 
This is the Vintage 1950s Silvertone 1304/U1 Black Electric Guitar.
23.5" scale length. 1.65" nut width. 5 lbs 9 oz.
.80"-.90" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
The 'Quarter Bell' headstock puts this instrument to the late 50s.
The pots look to have been replaced in the 90s, so the headstock is the best way to date. 
Built by Danelectro for Silvertone, the masonite body is cut to the famous 50s U1 single cutaway silhouette and is covered in the tuxedo black/white.
The body is super-light which contributes to the guitar's open and punchy tone and playing comfort.
And it wouldn't be a Danelectro without the patterned tape body binding. 
The woody punch of this Silvertone hits the amp via a Danelectro Lipstick pickup.
This tube yields a round, funky tone with superb clarity, positioned in the middle of the top for a balance between brillance and warmth.
Volume and Tone controls let your dial in your perfect voice. 
The maple neck is amazingly comfortable and fast.
The rosewood fretboard is home to 18 frets and classic dot inlays. 
This 50s Silvertone is a killer looking, stellar playing, and classic sounding instrument for any style you might play. 
This Silvertone is in good +/- overall condition- likely refin, many scratches and marks as you'd expect on a 64 year old gloss black instrument.
The frets here are in good condition, this guitar is set up and ready to play.
Don't pass this by.
