The Danelectro DC59M, has been a popular guitar range since the late fifties and has been used by many artists through the years including Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix. The '59M Spruce tweaks the original formula with a newly added spruce soundboard and offset soundhole. The Rosewood fingerboard allow easy access to the higher frets, making it an ideal choice for many different level players. The design maintains its retro origins and is now available for the next generation of guitarists.
The lipstick-tube pickup was first introduced by Danelectro on their line of electric guitars. The original lipstick-tube pickups were, in fact, manufactured using surplus lipstick tubes that were bought from a cosmetics manufacturer , and featured on many original Danelectro guitars. These surplus lipstick tubes, had the electronics inserted within and therefore made it the lowest cost guitar pickup in the industry at the time.
The current production pickups are not made using surplus lipstick tubes, but rather using tubes machined especially to match their original design. It is crafted from a single-coil magnetic guitar pickup, which has its electronics totally encased in a chrome-plated metal tube. These renowned pickups allow you to achieve a rich and round sound.
