❌SOLD❌ Danelectro 3022 DC2 Thinline Electric Bronze, 1959

In the mid 1950’s, interest in the electric guitar rapidly increased and guitars like the Danelectro 3022 DC2 were built to satisfy the demand. Designed to be inexpensive to produce and buy, tens of thousands of these and related guitars were built for sale through department stores like Sears (under the Silvertone brand), some in the $70 price range. While countless players started with guitars like this, most played for their own satisfaction but some went on to spectacular fame.
