It's hard to be disappointed. When you buy Danelectro, you know exactly what you expect. There is probably no person who would think about buying this guitar when looking for versatility. And if you expect this specific sound, you will get exactly that ... but also a little more. This is not my first baritone guitar, but it is indeed the first one that is fully prepared for low tuning. The vast majority of baritones have exactly the same components as a standard tuned guitar, so the tone potentiometer and the neck pickup play a rather decorative role. In practice, using them in a low-tuned guitar ends up in a sound so muddy that, apart from experimental music, there is hardly any room to apply them.
On the other hand, the Danelectro with the bridge pickup sounds so glassy and aggressive that the use of a neck pickup and a tone knob opens up possibilities for us. Hence, with all its specificity, Danelectro is quite universal in the baritone category, although its twang character is always present. I would describe its sound as a Telecaster taken to the extreme. So if there were Les Paul on one side and Danelectro on the other, the Telecaster would be somewhere in the middle.
I've read that there are little flaws with the build quality. The instrument I received has a small gap where the neck ends, but that would be it. The rest is flawless, and the guitar looks so beautiful and elegant that I look like a peasant next to it in a casual outfit. There are no loose parts, nothing creaks, keys and knobs work perfectly.
The comfort of playing is huge. The guitar is very light. I was a bit worried that it would be light as a toy, but nothing like that. It's light, but it's still a guitar. The neck is very comfortable and the long scale does not make it difficult to play at all.
If you love the sound of Telecasters and would like even more aggressive twang attack, and at the same time like experimenting with very low tuning then you definitely need this guitar.
