You are bidding on a Danelectro 'DC-59' Double-cut-away '59 re-issue electric guitar.
I am unsure of the year it was made, I bought it in 2000, so it is at least a 1999, but it is a re-issue, do not bid on this if you think it is original, it is not.
It has been fitted for humbuckers due to the fact that the original 'Lipstick' pickups are noisy as heck and I wanted to actually play this guitar on stage with real distortion. It is routed now, so original pickups will no longer fit.
It has a brand new H3 Tom Anderson bridge pickup and a old used Jackson humbucker from an old Charvel series One Strat in the neck position. The Tom Anderson pickup alone costs $100 .
If you know anything about these guitars, then you know that they play exceptionally easy and this one is no exception, it has very low action with no fret buzz, and at standard tuning with .009 gauge strings, it plays very 'squishy', you would have to move up to like .012 gauge strings to get more tension like a regular electric guitar. If you have weak fingers, this guitar is for YOU! It plays so easy you will freak out if you have never played a Danelectro before. Plus this is just a really cool looking retro guitar.
It was once a pinkish color and I sprayed it black to look more like Jimmy Pages famous '59 Danelectro and I also sanded the back of the neck to play smoother and faster(see photo) than regular Danelectros%2
