    I'm in love with Danelectro's Hodad's body, do you know any other guitar/company that builds a body similar to this?

    All parts sells some Danelectro bodies. Maybe you could buy one and build your own guitar.

    oh, I don't want a copy (in that case I'd buy that dano)

    I just wanted to ask if there were anything else out there similar to this

    They have necks but wasn't aware they had any bodies.
    ... time passes....
    I looked at the Allparts site. Looks like they have rough hodad bodies but nothing else. I think those were leftover stock that Dano had imported for warranty or something.

    It's kind of based on a Mosrite shape (an exaggerated upside-down strat)

    see http://edroman.com/guitars/mosrite.htm

    i don't know how much connection there is to the original company set up in the '60sm but they are out there. Eastwood does a similar model which is a copy of the Univox Hi-Flyer (an MIJ Mosrite copy)...
