A road worn rare double neck from Danelectro!
With pot codes dating to the 30th week of 1959, this double neck has seen some use, but still functions just as it should. These are constructed with a hollow masonite built body, and have been favorable instruments for players since their inception, with unique tone that screams the 1960's.
This one comes to us in very good condition, and all functions fairly well. The body has significant finish wear which is really typical on the old Dano and Silvertones - primarily along its edges and elbow - as well as some chips near the output jack. Its white vinyl trim shows some age, and dirty discoloration, but is in tact. The body, constructed out of masonite and poplar is clean and structurally very sound. The pickups function as they should, with clear defined medium low output - giving the guitar end quite a bit of jangle and rasp, and the bass plenty of clarity definition and bottom-end. Original pick guards and knobs are all present. Pots appear unmarked regarding date codes. It's 1118 serial number implies a '58 build.
Both necks play beautifully with really comfortable low action. The fingerboards and frets are in great shape, and appear to have been re-fretted professionally in its past. The original tuners are present and function, but are heavy to turn, as these worm gears have been a bit bent - but all function as they should, the bass side having a little bit more trouble twisting. Significant wear in the profile feels nice, but has heavily worn through tis copper finish. The action currently measures a very playable 5/64" in height at the twelfth fret on both necks, with minimal buzz.
Comes with the original hardshell case! a truly rare find albeit a bit worn out.
