The Danelectro Original Factory Spec 1959 Reissue Electric Guitar faithfully reproduces the classic electric guitar manufactured from the mid '50s through the late '60s and sold in popular mail-order catalogs. The double-cutaway guitar has a masonite and poplar body with textured tape edging.
The Danelectro guitars bolt-on poplar neck has a rosewood fretboard, and unique "bottle" shaped headstock with open-back 3 in-line tuners. Perhaps the most distinctive features of this guitar are its "lipstick" pickups-originally consisting of alnico bar magnets and copper wiring wrapped in brown tape and mounted in what were-in 1959-surplus chrome-plated, lipstick tubes.
The 1959 Danelectro guitar bridge had a metal base with notches that held the ball-end strings, and a rosewood saddle. Other features included white knobs on dual concentric tone and volume controls, a white "seal" pickguard, and a non-adjustable aluminum truss rod.
