    Here is my new Danocaster that I've been holed up with for over a week now;

    As you can see the finish/ relicing is about as good as it gets.
    Instantly felt like an old friend as in if I had had it for years already.
    Looks right, feels right, plays and sounds right.

    I have had it in my hands every moment I've been home since receiving it as it's hard to put down.

    If any of you get the chance to buy one- do it!
    They go quickly and for good reason.

    Thanks Dan for putting these out!

    That is fantastic. I really gotta stop looking at these threads, or I'm gonna be wearing a barrel.

    Nice one, BluesJuke...
    Ain't nothin like gettin a new/old Guitar...I have had about 400+ put together for me, and used by me...I would keep em all, but My Wife, Jannie Ray has a saying in that (She has a vote)...I keep about 5 axes. I hate to sell my Burst Tele but it went on flea bay yesterday, a 6 lb 3oz. Blues Machine...bummed but I have only music as my JOB...

    Play the Tele in Health and slow down, Bro...say somethin

    Yes, aged to perfection.
    Very rarely do I see one that had the right color to it but Dan nailed it.

    Steel saddles and a nice full C neck.
    The pickups are GVCG/Lollar Alnico 3's and are sweet.

    The guitar is very full sounding with a nice bottom end.
    Weighs in a 6lbs. 12oz..

    The way Dan finishes the necks is awesome.

    I can't decide what color I want darn it. I was all set on the Butterscotch when he unveils it, but when I was digging around on the site yesterday and saw yours I started getting second thoughts. I think I might be leaning towards white blonde now. why is life so hard? can you shoot me?

    Thanks Sean I think so too!
    9.5" radius.
    The photos don't show it but there is some nice checking there too.

    Call Dan, he''ll fix you up.

    thrashmetl, that was easy for me.
    I already had a Butterscotch.

    It's easy for you too.
    Decide which you want first then buy the other.
    I'm sure Dan will make two for you!

    Don't think that the gears weren't grinding though when I saw his Butterscotch, it would be nice to have another and since there's no law against it...........

    How'd you see the butterscotch? Are there any pictures of it yet? I want to order ASAP so as soon as I see it I'm gonna make a valid attempt at making up my mind and put it in. This money is burning a hole in my pocket and seering the flesh on my leg at the moment.
