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 clean.

Jose Antonio D., 04.07.2012
I bought this guitar for a friend who wanted to start in the world of the guitar and did not want to try "sub", but something different. He decided on this guitar because of the aesthetic aspect, but when it arrived we were pleasantly surprised.

It is a very light guitar, weighs very little. Very comfortable and with really good finishes.

The sound in clean is incredible, very original, sharp and bright. In distortion is where it fails a bit, it is a guitar indicated for Indie, Pop, Blues ... but for rock is somewhat short. However it was exactly what we were looking for.

Recently the action is somewhat high, however I think that making a small adjustment on the bridge can be a really comfortable mast.

A perfect guitar for beginners looking for something different.
