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'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.
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.
