Hugely Underated
Mat H., 01.10.2015
There are a lot of options for a good quality, great sounding bass and you can spend exorbitant amounts for features that make you feel like you're getting your money's worth, but the Danelectro Longhorn is proof that you don't have to spend big and in fact, you can get more "bang for you buck".

Build Quality. Just because it's relatively cheap, doesn't mean that this is a poorly made instrument. It's simple construction is very well put together and it makes this bass very light. The frets are finished very nicely and the short-scale neck is very easy to play with a superb feel. The finish on the neck and body is flawless and looks stunning and the tape binding around the body is a lovely and unique touch that gives all Dano's a nice something extra that you don't find elsewhere.

Parts. The bridge is very solid and even without adjustable saddles, the intonation is good and the rosewood saddle offers a lovely warmth to the tone. If you're think this is a "cop-out", I'd reference that no matter of cost, all great acoustics have a non-intonatable bridge saddle and nobody has ever complained about that! The aluminium nut offers some brightness and the other end of the string and most importantly means that tonally, the open string is much closer to a fretted note. Finally, the tuning machines are excellent. Kluson styled, they are very solid and hold the string very stably.

Electronics. Lipstick pickups offer superb clarity and a fully rich tone with a lot of punch and the controls are simple, a stacked volume and tone for each pickup.

Conclusion. This bass might be light but it's not a "lightweight". Studio or stage, this is serious tone to be had for very un-serious money.

Love this bass
Badge, 02.06.2020
One of the best guitars I've bought. It is cheaply made but it is very playable, very light, sounds great and as a bonus it looks weird. It has character and you could play it all day long. Small scale so great for guitarists changing over. It is hollow plastic so super light. It does feel solid but i can't help think I would prefer a wooden solid or chambered version. Possibly not a workhorse though I may be wrong. Fell in love with it.

Teures MUST HAVE !
E. aus M., 31.10.2015
Vor über 10 Jahren hatte ich ein Longhorn-Reissue, von dem ich mich leider trennen musste.Irgendwann sollte dann aber wieder ein Longhorn her.Gebrauchte gab es kaum. Jetzt endlich gibt es sie wieder. Eine Wahl hatte ich also nicht wirklich... Man liebt den Sound oder wendet sich gleich kopfschüttelnd ab.Verarbeitung und Material waren bei den Original-Danelectros eher was für tolerante Naturen.
Natürlich ist der Bottom Sound auch bei diesem Shortscale nicht so satt und präzise wie bei einem Longscale ,aber ein guter Amp liefert den nötigen Druck. Der Sound dieses Basses ist m.E. einzigartig.Knurrige Bässe+Mitten, die insb.mit Röhrenamp dazu verleiten, dem Leadgitarristen Paroli zu bieten.Beide Pickups zusammen liefern knackigen Twang, der sogar zum Slappen taugt ( dazu klingt ein Transistoramp brillanter). Youtube- Soundbeispiele sind ok, aber ,besser aber die ganz alten Golden Earring Alben anhören, insb. "Eight Miles High (mit Bass-Solo)" oder "Seven Tears".

Das neue Reissue ist teurer als das vorherige. Verbesserungen? Die Metall-Gurtpins statt der damaligen Plastikknöpfe wären ein Plus, wenn das Holz nicht so weich wäre- die Schrauben drehen schnell durch.Die Mechaniken sind leichter bedienbar und stimmstabiler als die alten. Die Pickups sind ETWAS lauter.Das war's auch schon.Die Potiknöpfe sind nicht nur häßlicher, sondern auch fummeliger bedienbar als die des Vorgängers. Schliff und Lackierung sind dünn und stellenweise lieblos erfolgt, vor allem sichtbar, wenn man das Plastik"binding" entfernt.Das Griffbrett zeigt noch in voller Länge leichte Schleifspuren unterhalb der E-Saite. Da war das Vorgängermodell sorgfältiger verarbeitet! Wenn man sich die Qualitätsentwicklung gerade bei LowBudget-Instrumenten ansieht, erwartet man heute bei diseem Preis eine sauberere Verarbeitung.
Aber wie gesagt: MUST HAVE! Diesen Longhorn gebe ich nicht wieder raus!

Goede bas maar kost wat werk
Basbas, 13.07.2019
Ik wilde een jaren zestig sound en de keuze was dus tussen de Dan Electro of een Höfner. Uiteindelijk voor deze gekozen.

Ik heb een paar maanden moeten wachten maar uiteindelijk werd hij geleverd. De bas ziet er goed uit. Er hing een labeltje aan afgesteld in de VS. Waarschijnlijk om te laten zien dat er aandacht aan besteed was.

Uit de doos klonk de bas slecht. De snaren rammelden en veel boventonen. De hals was kaarsrecht! Ik heb de truss rod bijna anderhalve slag moeten verdraaien om een goede kromming te krijgen. Vervolgens de brug op de laagste stand gedraaid, het achterste element bijgesteld en er La Bella Deep Talking flats op gelegd. Wat overigens nog niet meeviel vanwege de kleine opening in het stemmechanisme.

Na een paar uurtjes aandacht heb je vervolgens wel een bas gewoon lekker jaren 60 klinkt en erg lekker retro uitziet. Radar Love aanzetten en meeraggen!

Komend weekend kijken hoe hij live klinkt, maar ik heb er alle vertrouwen in.
