Silvertone Model 1303/U2 Electric Guitar, Silverburst (USED)


Our Notes: This guitar is not pre-owned. It comes to us from MIRC, who fixed a couple of factory finish blemishes, as seen in the photos. The blems have been smoothed and clear-coated.

MIRC (Musical Instrument Reclamation Corporation) is the nation's largest wholesaler of quality used guitars and has been in operation since 1992. They have long standing contracts with most major manufacturers, including over 30 brands, who they source the guitars from directly. They receive factory seconds, blems, overstocks, and some guitars in need of repair. Their manufacturer's certified shop thoroughly inspects and sets up every guitar and repair the ones needing work. The end result is a high-quality refurbished guitar we can pass along to our customers at a discounted price. 


Timeless Twang

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. They 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.


Product Features:


LIPSTICK SINGLE COIL PICKUPS

The single-coil pickups of the 1303/U2 are wound to the same specifications as the originals. The “lipstick” case provides unmatched shielding for low noise and high signal.

LIPSTICK SINGLE COIL PICKUPS

UPGRADED HARDWARE

The original 1303/U2 had less-that-modern bridge, tailpiece and tuners. The Reissue has a fully adjustable bridge for accurate intonation and smooth individual tuners.

UPGRADED HARDWARE

IMPROVED PLAYABILITY

Neck shapes and fret jobs were inconsistent on the original 1303. The Reissue features a comfortable (and consistent) C-shaped neck with a precise and well-finished fret job. The neck also features a two-way truss rod for accurate and dependable adjustment.
