Vintage guitars for sale: Danelectro

Danelectro produced low cost guitars, initially between 1954 and 1969. They were made to be inexpensive, but with their lightweight bodies (usually Masonite) simple build style, and improvised metalic lipstick tube pickups, they actually had quite a distinct twangy tone. They are very much associated with a period in the mid to late 1960s when they were used most notably by Jimmy Page, Syd Barrett (used a shorthornon the first two Pink Floyd albums), John Entwistle (most notably used a Longhorn bass for the solo in The Who's 'My Generation') and Jack Bruce (he used one throughout the classic Disraeli Gears).

Models to look out for: U2, Longhorn bass, Shorthorn. Reissues are easy to find, and still make great playing guitars; especially suited to rocking out!
