They say history doesn't repeat itself; we beg to differ. Just like the original back in 1958, the Silvertone 1303/U2 offers a unique sound and playing experience that will inspire you to express yourself the same way as the rock icons that played the originals did.
The philosophy behind the Silvertone Classic line is to respect the original vintage designs, while improving on previous manufacturing limitations through modern engineering, parts, craftsmanship and most importantly, the opinions of modern guitar players . In other words, Vintage Vibe for the modern player! We think you'll like the result, plug one in and let us know what you think.

So, what did we change?
The body is made of solid Mahogany, for a deep rich tone not found in the original 1303/U2. The string through body bridge means faultless intonation and better string attack - an improvement over the original rosewood bridge. We also paid special attention to the neck profile (we thought it best to actually give it a profile versus a table leg!), improving it with a comfortable C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. The individual machine heads are another upgrade over the original - the results which both you and your audience will appreciate.
