Electric Guitar. Made by Danelectro.
The Danelectro Original Factory Spec 1959 Reissue Electric Guitar faithfully reproduces the classic electric guitar made from the mid ’50s in the course of the past due ’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. Most likely essentially the most unique features of this guitar are its “lipstick” pickups–firstly 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, and a non-adjustable aluminum truss rod.
