This is a discontinued reissue of the Danelectro 59-DC ' Jimmy Page model in black. This is new in the original box, complete with all hang tags (see pic). These are much higher quality than the other reissues with the rosewood bridge. The '59 Dano reissue electric guitar is based on the guitar model first released in 1959 and sold through the mid-'60s. Just because this guitar is inexpensive does not mean it's not a serious instrument. The '59 Dano guitar features professional-level playability, intonation, and electronics. The '59 Dano is a guitar that will withstand the rigors of the road and continuous stage work in addition to inviting curious glances and knowing nods of approval.
The '59 Dano comes in finishes inspired by classic car colors of the day and have zero gloss, which helps convey the retro vibe. The glossless colors, seal pickguard, lipstick pickups, ridged knobs, and vertical headstock logo all help to create the immediate impression that this is an instrument from another time.
The body is a double-cutaway, and features the familiar plastic tape that runs around the edge of the guitar. Originally, this was to hide the seam in the two-piece body construction. Modern Dano's are not made using this clamshell method anymore, but the tape remains, as it is such a distinctive part of the look. The tape is affixed using a self-adhesive, and is aged with a shellac to give it a slightly brown-streaked or discolored look which adds to the vintage vibe. The pickguard is covered in the same material and cut precisely to fit.
