Put my deposit down for a Danocaster today. It's going to be a longgggg 4 months!
That is all.
Awesome!!! What did you order? Style/color?
"nicotine blonde"/maple neck, chunky C. Just a straight up 50's classic look.
Jklotz, are you taking all my thunder?
I, too, finalized a new build commission with Dan today.
Dan mentioned that he had had ~5 new orders in the past 24 hours.
I fully expect this to be a wonderful experience by all accounts.
I ordered a Double Cut (Strat), Daphne blue, ash body, maple board, NEW fat back C neck.
The looking forward to receipt is half the enjoyment.
Anticipation is undervalued.
I was torn between this build and a black Tele double bound custom which I still want.
So many guitars and so little time.
I anxiously await the day when I can order my next Dano. Dan builds fantastic instruments, and is a hell of a nice guy to boot.
Enjoy the agony of waiting.
I have two months left on a 50's aztec gold ash double cut. Am getting very anxious.
Yea, mine a tele. Damn - 5 orders today. Hope mine was 1st in the que.....
My Black Danocaster Double bound single cut will be done in the next 48 hours. Pretty excited about it. It's been a long wait. It's best to just forget about it a few weeks after you order it. ;-)
One day soon ill be posting my new Dano down payment!
Somewhere down the line you won't miss the wait time at all...
When you're enjoying your play time. That neck will spoil you for anything else.
I'm so glad to see Dan doing custom work again!
does he want a full price deposit to place an order?
No, just a $200 deposit.
Curious, when did you put in your order? I have Dano build number two in the works. Good advice loud-acoustic. Just not so easily to 'fuhgeddaboudit'.
I honestly can't remeber how long ago I made my deposit. I believe double bounds take a little extra time. He told me 5 months I think. I just remembered that mid to late March was the time to be looking forward to. (Kept me from counting days)
I will also agree that the neck feel, vibe, and finish is the main reason to buy. The tone also keeps me coming back. This will be dano t #3 I have had a handful of his guitars all were great in their own way. My wife says more than two is crazy, which may be partially true. I just can't figure out which one I could let go.
Okay, now on to watching my bracket fall apart some more.
I put in a deposit a few days before Christmas 2014. So, I'm at 3 months on the dot. I probably have another month to go. Yikes, April may be rough (in a ridiculous first-world problem kind of way).
I honestly can say my Dano single cut (T-style) has completely satisfied my every tele itch. I wish I could justify having two. Even better than average Fender custom shop specimens don't entice me. I know, crazy right? This logic (or lack thereof) has helped me successfully lobby the wife about going with a double cut (S-style) for number two. What a swell gal. Then maybe an offset for number three? See how easy it is to justify GAS?
If you want to expand your shortlist,
also look into a Rust. (30th St Guitars/NYC builder Matt Brewster)
I'm not affiliated, it's just that they're that good...
Just got my Dano TODAY. There are few feelings that can compare to opening a Dano gig bag for the first time.
Black double-bound dual-PAF single cut. First he's ever done -- so cool to know that. It might put my 2014 Lemon Burst R8 into retirement. The pickups are amazing -- special, hidden-menu stuff from Peter Florance. The set up on the guitar is unreal, and like a previous poster said, the neck will just spoil you...
And yes, the wait IS part of the pleasure.
