  • Jimmy Page's Danelectro DC59.

    Is Jimmy Page playing one of the recent Danelectro DC 59 modified or is it an older DC 59 with a modified bridge?



    The Danelectro DC59 modified reissue. Which is now discontinued BTW..

    older Dano with modified bridge. The newer reissues were disappointing IMHO. I have a MIK DC-3 that I picked up 10 years ago that is cool. I would grab up an older 59 DC from the same era and mod the bridge before I would bother with this newer model.

      As a sidenote, I know that Danelectro probably doesn't want to stray away too far from the reissue niche, but I would be very happy to see a Danelectro with the 90s style lipstick in the neck position and an overwound stacked HB @ the bridge. (To me, all of the lipstick bridge pickups are worthless--including the double lipstick in some of the model--except to blend in a bit with the neck pickup, the difference in tone remaining nearly inconsequential).

        I dunno...the most recent 59 DC reissue seems to play and sound nice. It suppose to be the same spec as the orignal as compared to other reissues.

        The Dano 1959 Reissue "Modified Spec" model features all the original appointments you love from the original 59 DC including the bottle headstock and texture side edge tape, but adds a 6-saddle adjustable Baddass style bridge replicating Jimmy Page's original 3021 model.

          I Fully concur the newer reissue pickups are very very sweet

        Owning the newest DC59.. I have to say it's the best Dano I've ever played.

        I'd have no problems taking it with me to a gig. It plays so smooth... The action rocks...

        Sorry about reviving an old post... Just thought I'd return to HCEG in style.
        Gear:

        - Some guitars
        - A bass
        - Amps to accompany said guitars and bass
        - A drum kit

        GOOD DEALS WITH: lossforgain, Aedes

          As an aside, I really don't think Danelectros were going for the prices they were just a few years ago....I don't remember them being THIS expensive...

            The Danelectro that Jimmy Page is holding is a 3021. The DC59 model is the "reissue" of the 3021.

              I love my DC-3! Amazing how something made just for the sake of cheapness equalled mojo! In high school, I played at a friend's house, and he had an original 1 pup version in black, plus a Magnatone amp which were probably his dad's. He was a drummer. Cool guitar, but not great for metal! -Adam
