Return of a Classic

The original Silvertone 1303/U2 Electric Guitar was one of the original solid body guitars, and its signature twang inspired many musicians and future models. As the 1970s came, Silvertone fell out of style to more visually simplistic guitars, but the return came when garage rock bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys began playing similarly retro instruments. Later, the vintage Silvertones found themselves in the hands of Bon Iver, Beck, and Mark Knopfler. Now, the reissue brings an updated version with plenty of history to influence many more guitarists to come.

Throwback Design

This single cut shape is a timeless choice due to its simplicity, playability and attractive design. The sleek, fully silverburst body would comfortably fit amongst guitars of any era and the headstock is designed with extra length and a slim profile. This classic, sophisticated guitar will be sure to turn heads with its name and history.

Classic Single Coil Lipstick Pickups

One of the most influential features of the original Silvertone 1303/U2 was the pickups’ single coil twang and spring. The tone was easily recognisable, and sought after by many blues and country artists, whilst the lipstick shape pushed forward the drive popular in up and coming rock music. The 1303 has identical replica pickups to the originals, so the crunchy, high signal sound is accessible to a whole new generation.

Updated, Refined Features

As brilliant as Silvertone guitars were, they lost favour for their inconsistent fretwork and necks. This reissue has resolved this problem with a modern C neck shape, and an all-round more reliable build quality to ensure your guitar gets all the right sorts of attention. The body is Mahogany whilst the top is Maple which keeps the tone deep and rich, with a twang at the top end for extra flare. A newly engineered neck joint will also help the guitar’s sustain. The 1303/U2 reissue also features a modernised, fully adjustable bridge to supply a thick, resonant tone.

SubZero Tube-5W Guitar Amp

The 1 x EL84 Ruby tube is combined with 1 x 12AX7 Ruby tube to create a sound that goes from lush warm clean tones through your dirtier blues drive all the way to blazing rock.

Featuring both a clean and overdrive channels, this amp gives you the option of driving the valves to get a really bluesy crunch, or switching to the clean channel to achieve the characteristic full warm clean sound only found with valves, but without losing any volume.

The 8" Celestion Super 8 speaker means that you're in safe hands when it comes to delivering your desired sound whether at practise or on stage.
