Dano '63 anyone?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by andy sire, Mar 10, 2008.


  1. I was thinking of buying a new Danelectro '63 but no shops have them near me so I can't try one. Has anyone had one actually in their hands? The longscale looks neck-heavy - how does it balance when wearing? And the shortscale seems very short- what does it really sound like. The sound on the Dano website is awful. I already have a Danelectro guitar and it sounds a whole lot better than the sample of the same guitar played on their site so I don't trust the samples as a reference point.....:help:

    They're not shipping until late April. So no one will be able to try them until then.

    I ordered a short-scale. It's a standard short-scale at 30".

    The sound on their web site is not the best, but it was ok for me.

    I plan on buying a long scale, I have a Hodad and it's an incredible bass! Seriously! I have G&L SB2's, an L2000, a couple Jags, etc.....but I think I enjoy the Hodad most of all....so the '63 ought to be a blast!!
