Solidbody Electric Guitar with Plywood Body, Hardboard Top and Back, Maple Neck, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, and 2 NOS+ Single-coil Pickups – Black Metal Flake

Meet the Danelectro’s Dark Side

Double horns, composite body, and lipstick-style pickups: there’s simply no mistaking a Danelectro! However, if you’re looking for a modern spin on Dano’s classic retro futuristic formula, the dark, moody aesthetics of the Danelectro Blackout ’59 are sure to please. While the looks might be a bit of a departure from a vintage-style ’59, this guitar’s sound is pure Danelectro — a pair of chime-filled NOS+ lipstick pickups produce clear, bell-like cleans with a raunchy overdriven tone that’s perfect for filthy blues and trashy garage rock. Beyond that, the 1-piece wraparound bridge is a vast improvement over the vintage-style Danelectro wooden bridge. And while the pau-ferro-on-maple neck’s dual-action truss rode also defies vintage-correct specs, it’s a welcome addition for guitarists who value a precise setup.

NOS+ lipstick pickups for definitive Danelectro tone

Based on the sonic character of their original NOS single-coil pickups, the NOS+ pickups in the Blackout ’59 guitar have been optimized for hotter output and livelier tone overall — punchier lows and mids, and highs with more clarity and bite. They sound particularly amazing for bluesy slide work and pair beautifully with an overdriven tube amplifier.

Construction updates for modern reliability

Like a great many vintage guitar designs, older Danos can sometimes fall victim to reliability issues. But you’ll be able to gig your Blackout ’59 without worry, thanks to modern updates that bring the guitar up to today’s high-quality standards. You’ll get great intonation up and down the neck with the intonation-adjustable wraparound bridge.And while the older Danelectros often lacked a truss rod, the Blackout ‘59’s dual-action adjustable truss ensures that your neck stays straight and plays true.

Instantly identifiable Dano looks and sound

From the vintage era to the modern day, no other guitar looks — or sounds — like a Danelectro! The Blackout ’59 retains the retro-futuristic spirit of its predecessors, but with a few adjustments thrown in for a darker, more elegant look. Each guitar in the Blackout series sports a pitch-black pickguard, in defiance of classic white plastic dolphin guard, with a set of fresh finishes that embrace the Dano’s darker side. But fear not vintage fanatics! Under the hood, the feel and tone of a Blackout ’59 is pure old-school Danelectro.
