Danelectro 66BT Blue Burst

This guitar is styled like a bit like a '6o's Mosrite with Danelectro lipstick pickups in an unusual humbucker arrangement.
As with many of these Korean built US style recreations the build quality is actually very good.
I was after a Baritone electric and the combination of a semi-body and the Wilkinson tremolo was an added bonus.
I really like the styling of this guitar. I think the blue is a great colour and it alters in different lighting conditions.
The guitar as delivered was moderately well set up with medium gauge strings (a wound third) and I'd say these are optimum for this baritone guitar. The guitar offers a lot of adjustment to get a spot on set up.
The pickup combination of dual lipstick and 'P90' with the coil tap for the bridge pair work well. The tone control and volume pots are okay but probably could be improved for range and tonality with different R/C values. But it does sound good and the improvements I've mentioned are easily achievable at very low cost.
In summary, I love this guitar, it inspires lots of ideas and it's great fun. One thing that surprised me is that it's great with a slide! It's the sort of instrument that might have limited production and so might one day be sought after as a rare item. I do think its very good value for the money and for what it's worth I'd recommend it if you're after and electric baritone. For me its a keeper.

Ein super Instrument
Johannes Regenb. 31.08.2020
Wie immer bei Danelectro funktioniert einfach alles. Selbst das Tremolosystem funktioniert tadellos und ist 100% stimmstabil. Die Intonation ist tadellos. Teure Made in USA Fender Gitarren könnten sich daran ein Beispiel nehmen.
Klanglich ist sie überzeugend und vielseitig, läßt sich super bespielen und ist insgesamt sehr inspirierend. Nichts beeinträchtigt die Spielfreude. Allerdings ist das Instrument wegen der deutlichen Kopflastigkeit eher für Spielen im Sitzen geeignet. Sehr speziell sind auch die Potikknöpfe. Sie wirken billig und um den Push-Pull Button zu bedienen darf man keine schwitzigen Hände haben. Was solls.
Das Instrument bringt sie sehr viel Freude und bleibt.

Une forte personnalité

Guitare arrivée très rapidement mais ça on a l'habitude avec Thomann ;-) Déjà c'est une guitare que je trouve magnifique, petit bémol sur la finition intérieure de l’ouïe et oui c'est une hollow body. Quant au son : je vais de l'ambiant son clair au doom le plus baveux et fat. Vraiment on peut jouer plein de style (micros splitables : le top) avec un côté vintage quand même que j'adore. J'ai un peu galéré sur internet pour trouver les cordes adaptées alors pour vous faire gagner du temps D'addario EXL 158 ! Je vais rapidement changer le sillet et probablement les mécaniques, un peu light en effet pour le vibrato.
