Danelectro 59XT - Looks like fun!

1

Just saw this video from reverb.com for the new Danelectro 59XT. This looks like a ton o' fun guitar to play. And at $500 too!

Anyone tried one yet?

I liked it, a lot, despite too much cutting treble sound. I'd "bass" it out more, but it did sound cool.

Addendum: I wonder if playing with fingers this time around made me like it more?

You're right, that's a cool guitar with a lot of range. I could go for that.

And if they built it in a baritone, I could really go for that.

I've had an occasional itch for a Dano. Better get out the Cortizone.

The Wilkinson doesn't look right on it.

The Danelectro 84 Strat looks pretty cool, too. Love those lipsticks. Also with a Wilkinson. Not real big on the shape of the headstock. I'd be tempted to either shave the end of it a bit, or I guess you could swap in a Strat neck. Keep the graphite nut.

I haven't had Strat fever for decades, but the '84 might infect me. Three lipstick tubes are obviously a natural, I like the Wilkinson trem, rosewood board, and 10" radius. All very smartly spec'ed for my tastes, and it sounds great in demos.

Headstock is a bit of a clunker though.

The strat I knocked up from parts has lipsticks and a Wilkinson trem. I like that they've used full sized lipsticks instead of the strat sized ones.
