Celebrating 60 years of guitar building, iconic guitar manufacturer Danelectro has added four new models to its already impressive range.
The 64 is a reverential nod towards one of the classic guitar designs of the 1960’s. Featuring a solid reversed, double-cutaway, offset horn Agathis body, The 64 sports a licensed Bigsby® Tremolo system, with a vintage style neck single coil and a dual humbucking Lipstick® bridge pickup. The simple master volume and master tone rotary controls and three-way switch layout also houses a push/pull switch on the tone to split the bridge pickup. Available in Dark Aqua, Vintage White, Indigo, Metallic Orange, Candy Apple Red and Three Tone Sunburst (all £999 UK rrp), the 64 sounds, looks and plays the business!
As its moniker suggests the new 59M Spruce uses the classic Danelectro ’59 shorthorn shape and mates it to a Spruce soundboard with offset sound hole. Awesome tones abound from the usual pair of Lipstick® single coil pickups and the fully adjustable wraparound bridge provides superb tuning and intonation whilst retaining the iconic Danelectro twang. Available in White Pearl with a choice of Blue, Red or Black ‘Seal’ scratchplates or Black Pearl, Buttercup and Chianti the DC59M has a UK rrp of £599.
Meanwhile the 59 Resonator is perhaps the best-sounding thin body resonator ever! Combining a specially designed piezo pickup in the cone with a traditional ’56 Lipstick® pickup at the neck, the 59 Resonator again uses the ’59 Shorthorn shape with a hollow body and features master volume, master tone and pickup blend controls for the perfect mix of electric and acoustic tones. Available in a choice of Black or Tobacco Sunburst the 59 Resonator has a UK rrp of £779.
Finally, the 59DC Long Scale Bass (£499 UK rrp) combines all the classic Danlectro tones and playability into a 34” scale length body. With a fully adjustable bridge and a pair of high impedance, high output Lipstick® pickups the 59DC bass is available in Black or Copper Burst.
