Danelectro DC59M Electric
Opportunity knocks! Our pickup supplier “misplaced” a load of our lipstick© pickups in their warehouse... only to discover them recently... 15 years after they were manufactured!
When we listened to them we realised that these “New Old Stock” wonders have more twang than any Lipstick© ever! Is it because of the aged magnets? Or the materials used 15 years ago? Who knows. Who cares. They just sound great! So we took our flagship 59M model, with the tunable die cast bridge, and installed these 15 year old wonders...and voila... the best sounding, best playing Dano ever!

Danelectro was founded by Nathan "Nat" Daniel in 1947. Throughout the late 1940s, the company produced amplifiers for Sears, Roebuck and Company and Montgomery Ward. In 1954, Danelectro started producing the Danelectro lines of solidbody electric guitars and amplifiers. The company was also contracted to make guitars and amplifiers that were branded not with the Danelectro name, but with the names of various store brands, such as Silvertone and Airline. Later hollow-bodied guitars (constructed out of Masonite and plywood to save costs and increase production speed), distinguished by Silvertone's maroon vinyl covering, Danelectro's light tweed covering, the concentric stacked tone/volume knobs used on the two-pickup models of both series, and the "lipstick-tube" pickups—invented by placing the entire mechanism into spare lipstick tubes—aimed to produce no-frills guitars of reasonably good tone at low cost.
