This summer Danelectro are re-issuing their classic DC59 model in number of new colour finishes.
The DC59M, a stalwart of the Danelectro range since the late fifties and used by a plethora of artists through the years including Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knophler, comes with the modern (hence the M suffix) tuneable, die cast bridge for improved intonation, and of course the classic dual Lipstick® pickup configuration - but with a interesting twist!
Recently, the manufacturer found a large amount of the Lipstick® pickups they misplaced 15 years ago… and after giving them a listen Danelectro realised they had even more twang and classic bite - whether this because of the aged magnets, or materials used back then no-one is sure, but certainly demand is going to be high for this very limited run of one of the world's most recognisable guitars.
Available in Right On Red, Baby Come Back Blue, Outa-Sight White, Back to Black, Orange-Adelic and Go-Go Blue, The DC59M 'New,Old Stock' will be hitting the stores this summer - get ready to snag yourself a piece of history!
Danelectro guitars are distributed in the UK and Eire by John Hornby Skewes and Co Ltd.
