The Danelectro® ‘64XT™ electric guitar (already proving to be yet another line of ‘Dano best sellers’) is now available in a stunning Ice Gray finish.
This stunning new ‘all-over’ finish on the ultra cool vintage shaped Danelectro chambered body also includes the neck and classic Dano Coke bottle headstock, and more than highlights the ‘64XT’s modern and authentic adaptation of that classic, off-set, reversed double cutaway body shape from the 1950’s. This striking color is also offset with a cool Black Marble pickguard.
Without doubt, with classic Dano retro styling, the ‘64XT is pretty to look at, but aesthetics aside, the heart of every instrument is its tone. It’s here that this exceptionally cool guitar excels, with the unmistakable sparkly clean jangle of the single coil lipstick pickups that work for a host of styles, from surf to country, rockabilly to blues, to rock.
Hardware and electrics for this highly respected guitar include master volume and master tone controls, 3-way selector switch and large single coil pickup angled at the neck, delivering a warm sweet tone that’ll please the most hardened jazz player.
Back in the bridge position, a dual humbucking lipstick pickup is installed at the opposite angle, with coil tapping facilities via the master tone control, offering the classic Danelectro tone at humbucker or single coil outputs. Straight string-pull from smooth geared machine heads to a fully adjustable Wilkinson vibrato, via a precision cut graphite nut, allows the ‘64XT to return to zero pitch every time, whilst ensuring accurate and stable tuning.
Needless to say, the sonic versatility of this stunning electric guitar now available in this spectacular Ice Gray finish is immense, and playability to match with a great string action, sleek neck and fingerboard that inspires songwriting creativity from first position chords to soaring solo harmonic runs.
Little did Nathan Daniel know when he started to produce electric guitars in the early 1950’s, just how many bona fide Rock Gods would owe their career move to Danelectro guitars, one of the few guitar brands that can truly be described as legendary, classic, iconic, retro, cool, hip and trendy.
