1960 Danelectro DC 3011
Famed for the masonite/poplar body construction, these guitars define a period in guitar making history, ending up in the hands of many an aspiring guitarists who may or may not have gone on to make some of the most defining music of their generation. Oh and Jimmy Page played one...
This guitar is in good shape but has had a body refin. There is some wear but the paint is in good condition. The vinyl edging shows some signs of wear but is solid. At some stage the tailpiece was replaced so there is some evidence of that. This is quite faint.
The pickguard is non original and there is evidence of previous guards being on there.
The neck is in good condition with plenty of life left in the original frets. The iconic ‘cola bottle’ headstock still has a set of period tuners and aluminium nut fitted.
Hardware is in good condition with a little minor corrosion.
Electrically the pots have been changed but the pickup is correct
Guitar comes with a hardshell case.
This guitar has a very distinctive voice that is surprisingly compelling and a lot of fun to play. The hollow construction makes it surprisingly loud. Plugged in it sounds full with enough sustain and a roots quality to the tone.
A must for anyone looking for something a little different for the collection
