Five new Danelectros head back to the future

Danelectro has five quirky new models just arrived in the UK, reports distributor JHS.
The ’66 is a reproduction of the 1966 classic. It offers a single coil pickup combined with a classic lipstick humbucking pickup at the bridge with a semi-hollow body sporting a German carved ‘F’ hole top.
Famed for its 12 string models, Danelectro’s Vintage 12 sports a pair of ’56 vintage single coil lipstick pickups combined with its semi-hollow ’S’ hole body. Also sporting the semi-hollow ’S’ hole body the Vintage Baritone’s high-output, high-impedance pickups are designed to really capture the lows without ever getting ‘muddy’, JHS says. Meanwhile the ’84’s familiar lines are likely to raise some eyebrows, while the new ’64 Bass takes its cue from its ’66 guitar cousin. A German carved top with a single coil at the neck and pair of lipsticks to form a humbucker at the bridge, resulting in a range of tones never before heard on a bass, JHS claims.
