This guitar oozes Rock & Roll.
With a set of DR Black Beauties coated black strings it sounds very ballsy. The guitar came new and needed very little attention before getting it ready for playing. My original thoughts of it as a joke guitar were changed immediately after cranking the volume and setting it loose. It has great tone and the action lets it sail from end to end. It will begin earning your respect and you'll start fawning over it like a 59' Les Paul.
Love the guitar, unique.
I own the 2007 version, wich is a bit poorly produced. The original pickups sound a bit muddy and not as clean as the pickups of former version. But what makes me love the guitar is the feel this piece produces as you play it. If you like single coils and clean/low gain sound you will not regret purchasing one, it´s great for spacier sounds too. Try some fx and you´ll see. :D
Collectible and surprisingly playable
Mine is the 2nd generation reissue Chinese made one with asymmetric headstock, and non-stacked pots. It has a burgundy color that made me call it the Dr. Pepper guitar. It came for a price I could not resist, and thought I’d keep it in the trunk for the worst scenario. Surprisingly, after some cleaning and setup, the thing not only looks good, but plays good and sounds well enough for a 200 $ axe.The straight maple neck has a comfortable profile depth , maybe at its width some more real estate could come handy, which makes it a twang guitar, rather than a two note-bend guitars. Has a nice sustain with a flat fretboard, that makes it highly suitable for slide. I tend to tune it to open G and fiddle with Muddy Waters riffs for hours. The bridge PU alone sound a bit thin, the neck a bit too dark, but the two provide a nice balanced sound when engaged together. A blend wiring could be very useful for this kind of guitar. It has a unique sound without any added effects, I believe it will serve me well as an open mike / backup or canyoulenda guitar.
Fun, unique twangy sound, but with some quality issues
This is a very fun guitar to play-the neck action is great, but the pots are very fussy and mine needed some work almost immediately. The sound variations are somewhat limited, but I don't think there is any other guitar that sounds quite like the Danelectro. Being that they are so inexpensive, I guess you can forgive it for the not so great quality control.
