Danelectro '59 NOS Black Lefty Guitar

$ 349.00

Sold Out


The Danelectro Original Factory Spec 1959 Reissue Electric Guitar faithfully reproduces the classic electric guitar manufactured from the mid '50s through the late '60s and sold in popular mail-order catalogs. The double-cutaway guitar has a masonite and poplar body with textured tape edging.

The Danelectro guitars bolt-on poplar neck has a rosewood fretboard, and unique "bottle" shaped headstock with open-back 3 in-line tuners. Perhaps the most distinctive features of this guitar are its "lipstick" pickups-originally consisting of alnico bar magnets and copper wiring wrapped in brown tape and mounted in what were-in 1959-surplus chrome-plated, lipstick tubes.

The 1959 Danelectro guitar bridge had a metal base with notches that held the ball-end strings, and a rosewood saddle. Other features included white knobs on dual concentric tone and volume controls, a white "seal" pickguard, metal nut, and a adjustable aluminum truss rod.
