Everyone needs a Danelectro in their arsenal

13.08.2014
Two stars for features? Two stars for quality? Still a five-star review? How is that possible, you are wondering?

One only needs to try out a Danelectro guitar to figure it out.

These wonderfully retro instruments are basically made from tape, cheap wire and what is more or less "wood" made from leftover sawdust pressings. The tuners are junk and don't hold tuning very well, the bridge (on this version especially) is junk with a piece of badly-cut rosewood anchoring the whole thing, and overall, the guitar is not exactly oozing custom shop quality.

And yet, you must buy one!!!

The reason is that somehow this formula of low-quality components assembled by people whose luthiery skills are questionable at best somehow comes together to make an absolutely magical sounding instrument. There is literally nothing else that sounds like it out there, and this model with all its period-correct vintage appointments completely captures the spirit of the original. The lipstick pickups are great - possibly the only component I'm willing to laud praise upon - and I feel like the rosewood bridge actually softens some of that shrill top-end that they are known for in order to make the perfect Danelectro sound.

If you love Syd Barrett's sound then this guitar needs to be in your hands.

If it cost much more then it would be hard to say it was worth it, but the guitar is far more than the sum of its parts and thus you're getting far more than you are paying for. Highly recommended!

Great Sound In A Cheap Guitar

Rusty_Primal Rust, 29.05.2018
I always desired this guitar, I fell in love for this amazing alternative design guitar the instant that I have seen it played by Jimmy Page.
I use it in studio and it is an amazing guitar, cool deep and bright sound, nice action (I have not change the factory set-up) for playing with the slide or not, easy to change the tuning to play in open tuning
Pros: great sound, quality aesthetic extraordinary, perfect tuning.
Cons: it is not easy to reach quickly the volume and tone pot.
