Silvertone introduced one of the earliest solid body guitars in the fall of 1954. That early model evolved into the 1303 in 1958. The Reissue 1303/U2 has all the vibe and twang of the original with some significant upgrades. The thru-body bridge provides great attack and hefty tone while giving you all the modern adjustment options you want. We also paid special attention to the neck profile, improving it with a modern C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes.
