Up to my expectations, great Bass.

25.10.2016
I hestitated about getting this Bass, i've got short scales that would cover the jobs I fancied the Dano' for, the pounds dropped - all reasons to think twice... BUT went for gamble and ordered it...

The Danelectro is unbelievably good - good sound that cut's through general background gig hubub. responsive pickups and comfortable neck. I knew it was going to be light easy on the back. Tuning is stable and pretty much stays in all evening. An unexpected goody point is that, if playing sitting down - it doesn't cut off circulation to your legs. So a good studio Bass.
I didn't like the roundwound 'twang' but will put some Flatwounds on it pretty soon. Strap fixing on neck heel position makes the thing tilt down on the body, but slim fit young guys and gals won't have that problem.
Great, inexpensive and unusual - Nice Bass.
Thomann is the place to get it, here in three days (UK)

Almost true to the original Reissue of a cult bass!

Westcliff, 11.10.2009
With this, the third, reissue, Danelectro has achieved a most authentic resurrection of the most extraordinary bass.

Optics: With the pointed volume potis, the semi-matte ("coarse") copper burst finish, the "Totally Shielded" sign on the headstock and the true-to-the-original tuners, which are absolutely voice-stable by the way, this version looks like the original Longhorns, which are up to built in the sixties, confusingly similar.

Sound: As with the previous two Reissues (1999 and 2006), very close to the original, because at Danelectro then as today the Longhorn bass always consisted of a wooden frame and two Masonite records, giving it the special "twangy", crisp and yet for a short scale bass lends unusually deep and punchy sound. The "souped-up" pickups are a bit louder than the previous ones, which I think is an improvement and not a falsification.
However, this reissue (as well as the two predecessors) does not reach the 100% true to original sound, since the wound strings are Nickel Round Wound like in the fifties and sixties, but much thicker (.045, .065, .080,. .100) than at that time (original string thicknesses: .042, .053, .060, .079). However, this "problem" can be easily solved by changing the strings.

Speaking of string changes: The 2009er is the first version, in which the tension rod of the neck screw is located at the head of the instrument, which makes the readjustment of the neck curvature enormously easier!
All in all a super reissue of a super instrument!
