Double horns, composite body, and lipstick-style pickups: there’s simply no mistaking a Danelectro! However, if you’re looking for a modern spin on Dano’s classic retro futuristic formula, the dark, moody aesthetics of the Danelectro Blackout ’59 are sure to please. While the looks might be a bit of a departure from a vintage-style ’59, this guitar’s sound is pure Danelectro, a pair of chime-filled NOS+ lipstick pickups produce clear, bell-like cleans with a raunchy overdriven tone that’s perfect for filthy blues and trashy garage rock. Beyond that, the 1-piece wraparound bridge is a vast improvement over the vintage-style Danelectro wooden bridge. And while the pau-ferro-on-maple neck's dual-action truss rode also defies vintage-correct specs, it’s a welcome addition for guitarists who value a precise setup.
