Like Silvertone & Harmony guitars of the 1950's &'60s, Danelectro guitars have gained the kind of cult status that still sees them as a go to for guitar players looking for a truly unique tone, with a mid century vintage styling that is pure Americana. This 1960 Danelectro Convertible model was an adaption of the classic shorthorn guitar, redesigned as a semi acoustic model. The convertible features a woody, pleasantly boxy sound that is perfect for blues or finger style electric playing. The maple neck features a rosewood fingerboard and typically flat 14.5" radius, that also makes these guitars great for slide playing. The body is fitted with the traditional single coil lipstick pickup, perfect for gritty, overdriven sounds and warm and rich clean tones. Other features include the original adjustable rosewood bridge with fret wire saddle and the coke bottle headstock design used by Danelectro between 1956 & 1966.
This guitar is in very good, all original condition, and has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop.
