    ive never played a 12 string but the 6 strings ive played felt like toys. just generally thin, lifeless, and unresonant.



    i think if you randomly ordered old 60s/ 70s japanese guitars off ebay youd end up with something nicer thatll satisfy your ugly wierd looking guitar lust.

      well, im kinda looking to try something new and different. super sustainy and resonant is great and all, but all guitars are like that. it would be cool to have something ****************ed up sounding and weird to bring out more creative tendencies. i like those quirky things that make guitars sound broken or cool.

        Nothing sounds like a Danelectro, IMO. They all feel cheap, but I think that's part of the charm. Two I just sold:











        Both were great, but I think I'm gonna miss the bass a lot.
        I'm in a band called Little Sluggers. Signature.

            Make sure you get one with two single coils.



            I've heard the necks are really fat and uncomfortable but if you like playing casinos, I'm sure you would get used to it.

              I want one of their baritone guitars



              my very first guitar ever was a danalectro U2. they sound and play great, love how flat the necks are.

                  Great cheap guitars, IMO. Always wind up playing a few when I go to Austin Vintage. Definitely not a high end instrument or anything resembles one but it always reminds me how cool cheap guitars can sound. IMO, they don't play too badly either if you get a decent one.

                        I loooove my Dano Pro. No desire for any other guitar.. sounds unique.. I do not really miss being able to play the higher frets because having limitations makes you work harder and use what you are given to the best of your ability.

                            Dude. Yes. Danelectros are amazing. I love them. They definitely have a cheaper feel to them, but don't let that scare you away! They're amazing. They have this quirky hollow sound that is just grrrreattttt! I have mine set up for slide right now. Here it is, a U1







                            Heres a dude who rocks a Dano. Seriously this guy is amazing.
