Danelectro DC-59 12 String

By October 26, 201512 string, 2015, New Release

Danelectro introduce the new DC59 12-string. Danelectro have taken the legendary DC59 double-cut body shape but now has a hollow construction for extra resonance vented with a classic-style f-hole to give that unique chime of an electric 12-string…

The Danelectro semi-acoustic 12 string is the first of its kind from the legendary manufacturer. It has retro-cool styling and tones to match. The lipstick single-coil alnico pickups give this guitar a beautiful “jangle”, with added sparkle from the 12 strings and the resonant semi-hollow body.

Arguably the most famous Danelectro guitar, thanks to high-profile usage by the likes of Jimmy Page in Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett, the delicious double cutaway ’59 Dano is back and cooler than ever, thanks to a ‘pre-aged’ makeover and up-specced components and hardware.
