    I got this Danelectro Dano-blaster from the local
    Daddy's awhile back. It's a discontinued Korean-made
    model. These always get good reviews, if you search
    the web. Very much a strong P-bass sound (no
    lipstick tubes here) and nice to play - light and well
    balanced, with a 34" scale neck. Blue sparkle finish.

    The bass has definitely been played. I cleaned it up,
    took the neck off and made sure the truss rod works
    (yup, it's got one). I strung it with a nicely-broken-in
    set of TI flats from my stash, and was able to get a nice
    low action. I plugged one very small hole where a
    previous owner had put a thumbrest. Just a toothpick
    and some black marker was all it took; it's pretty
    much lost in the sparkle finish but it's still there. I
    didn't buy this bass to admire, I bought it to play so
    it didn't bother me. There's also a couple edge clunks
    on the bottom/rear.

    One more disclosure - the built-in chorus does not work.
    I have never investigated why, since I've always considered
    that to be a gimick anyway. If I want chorus, I'll buy a
    pedal.

    All that said, a very nice bass to play - I bought it for
    a backup bass, but found myself using it quite a bit more
    as primary. I'm looking for $200 shipped/lower 48, with
    Paypal being preferred. Only selling because I have my
    eye on something else, so no trade offers on this one please.

    Nice basses - I owned one for a while, maybe 4 years ago - the chorus worked in mine, and was kinda cool (no controls, just on/off). I replaced the pickup in mine with a SD Quarter Pounder, the stock one sounded fine, but I wanted to experiment.

    Mine had a different name, though - (I can't remember what right now..) Were these sold under a different name than 'Dano Blaster'?

    "Rumor" - that was what mine was called, but was essentially the exact same thing as yours.
