Danelectro 59 Mod NOS+ Blue Metal Flake
These new-generation Dano’s have the same look and sound as the originals. They feature the same lightweight, semi-hollowbody construction, with spruce frames, and hardwood tops and backs.
Build quality is superior to the older versions and the easy-playing necks are comfortable and solid, with excellent action. Combined with a U3 intonatable tunable bridge/tailpiece, these new models are much more dependable than their predecessors.
The Dano ’59 M + features the improved NOS+ Lipstick-tube alnico pickups, famous for Danelectro’s distinctive ‘quacky’ tone. They retain the quality of the original pickups in a quieter, punchier form.
Other features include a “seal”-style single-ply pickguard and 2 stacked volume/tone knobs with 3-position pickup selector switch.
It might not replace your main axe, but the Dano '59 M+ definitely has sounds worth adding to your arsenal, at a price you can afford. Very cool.
