For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this Copper 1960 Silvertone (Danelectro) U-1.

Starting in the mid-'50s, most guitars bearing the Silvertone brand name were produced by Danelectro. Silvertone was the in-house brand of Sears and was marketed to beginner guitarists. The U-1 was produced with a bottle-style headstock and later with a slanted six-on-a-side headstock. This model was also given the number 1317 by Silvertone.
