The new Hodads - all at £429 UKRRP - are available in Black, Blue Metallic and Red Metallic asguitars, and in Black and Blue Metallic as basses. Similar to theirpredecessors in looks and features, they all feature maple C-shapenecks with rosewood fingerboards - for that classic Dano feel -along with the unique masonite-topped body we all know and love,which produces a beautifully loud and brash tone acoustically andelectrically.
The pickups are of the classic Danelectro lipstick variety, withtwo single coils on the basses, and two pairs of lipsticks on theguitars (with a coil tap option available via a push/pull pot).These being Danelectros, the pickups are wired in series - asopposed to many other guitars, which are wired in parallel - soflick to the middle setting for a load of extra beef!
A joy to pick up and play, these new Hodads take Danelectro'sclassic looks and feel - and the vibe that has seduced superstarslike Jimmy Page, John Entwistle, MarkKnopfler and Jimi Hendrix over the years - and bringthem bounding into the present day as a uniquer proposition for21st century guitaristsand bassists. We defy you not to fall right under their spell theminute you pick them up!
