    Danelectro Divine ‘59!

    It’s basically a premium version of the classic ‘59 model. Semi-hollow spruce body. Double binding. Gotoh tuners. US components/wiring. Heavy duty solid bridge(GREAT bridge design, string changes are so easy).

    I just changed the strings and set it up, and it plays effortlessly with whisper low action and super clear jangly Dano tone. Totally killer!

    Congrats, that's a beauty. This week's Guitar Nerds podcast talked about modern Dano guitars.

    Since spruce is widely used as a top for acoustic guitars, I've wondered what a solid or semi-hollow guitar made out of spruce might be like. Now I sort of know vicariously.

    That would look killer next to your black binded white Rat Rod. Family photo perhaps. :)

    My wife is at the stage of "What did you buy now?" Followed by unboxing and "Oh my, that is beautiful!"

    Right on! You have taught her well. ;)
     
  17. That seems modest compared to what i thought it would be. I was thinking that huge ware house they stuck the box in from raiders of the lost ark.

    In the traditional Dano idiom, I've only ever had the SC blue suede one I snagged from @BorderRadio a while back but I've enjoyed it thoroughly, it's a great acoustic noodler/strummer for me that sounds very cool plugged in too. The spruce construction on this one seems intriguing for sure.

    Lol. Nah, the most I’ve had at one time was 50. That seemed crazy so I whittled back down. I CAN say, I actually use and play all that I have. And I dont have anything I don’t like or am lukewarm about. Each guitar is here because it plays and sounds great. If it doesn’t work for any reason, out it goes.

    Dano’s are SO cool in my book. Nothing else really sounds like them, and they sit perfectly in the mix when tracking.
