I won this at a local auction Monday and picked it up today. It's a reissue Danelectro U2 made between '98-'01 according to various sources on the Internet. I tried it out briefly and acoustically at the auction viewing at the weekend and was surprised at how loud it sounded unplugged. It needed a setup but I could tell it was a decent guitar. Now I've cleaned it, it's in almost mint condition. No chips or scratches, no fret wear, all electronics are working perfectly and the protective plastic is still on the pick guard and back plate. I'm surprised at how good this guitar feels and sounds, especially for the price.
