The Hodad is unlike any Danelectro ever built. maybe that's why it's hard to find. Built in Korea around 2000 model -- this one with offwhite body in excellent condition with no major issues -- has a bolt on neck, masonite body. Standard Dano stuff, but read on: 4 lipsticks wired as 2 humbuckers, with a 3 way switch. 2 tones and 2 volume knobs. when you pull one tone knob out it does a coil tap, the other one does an in/out of phase. gotoh tuners (very nice and smooth), great feeling neck. In other words, this is the only Dano that's not a one-trick pony! There is tone galore, but power, too.
if you play garage rock, surf, rockabilly, blues, or anything raunchy, this guitar has got it. Having the lipsticks wired like humbuckers offers a HUGE improvement over single lipsticks you're accustomed to with Danelectros. On top of that, the coil tap switch gives you that primitive single sound if you want, and the out of phase switch makes it the fullest, most beautiful sound ive heard from a Dano. No noise. Why they stopped making the Hodad is a mystery, but you want a Swiss Army knife of Danelectros, this is the one. Comes with gig bag.
