Dano 64S - Danelectro’s $1200 premium guitar. Would you buy a expensive Danelectro guitar?
Good for them. While that guitar does nothing for me (I hate strats), I’d be game for improved versions of their other guitars. I had a Jerry Jones at one time and always wished Danelectro took more interest in making premium, higher end guitars.
I bought a 59XT last year for $499 and it's a great guitar. I wouldn't hesitate to pay more for a Danelectro if I played one and liked it.
I would love to see one of those with the Hodad double lipsticks.
My wife probably wouldn’t though.
Yes but when you take a budget brand that is known for being one. Then you make a expensive model. Can they make the transition and still keep the core player happy? It will be interesting to watch.
I'm not interested in their take on a Strat, but I'd love to see higher-quality versions of their own models. I've never had the opportunity to try out a Jerry Jones but I'd be interested in a baritone or a 12-string.
When you make cheap guitars and are known for cheap guitars
Why would I want to buy a more expensive cheap guitar
Never owned a dano
This one hasn’t changed my mind
It’s not like prs made a affordable se models . They had a rep for great guitars
Hard to jack up the prices on guitars known as cheap
Would you buy a $1000 jay turser, samick, even Reverends are cheap and well more worth it
I think Danelectro have the goodwill to support a bigger end model but I'm not sure whew they're going with this one. I'm a fan, but really I'd rather see more accurate reissues of classic Danelectros than something with Strat pickups.
Then again, as a fan with $1000 to spend, there's a ton of vintage ones out there.
I'd much rather have a Hallmark which does Mosrite right for slightly less money (+nice case).
I can’t see how that shape would make a “better” strat.
The 90s Danos were good for what the were.
I would like a 90s U3. Those make great raunchy slide guitars.
Seems like they're marketing nostalgia but trying not to make such a POS in doing so. I guess if you like the Dano nostalgia but wanted something more quality by today's standards this would be appealing. But it seems like a pretty small target audience. A lot of indy bands seem to like these cheap old vintage guitars so maybe they're the market.
Want a nicer Dano? Buy a JJ. Want another Strat copy? Buy a....Dano?
