Comments about Danelectro Hodad Electric Guitar:

I had been looking for a guitar that had a wide range of tone. So when this came on sale, it was something I could not pass up. NOTE: Out of the box, the strings are not tuned, and you will need to tighten them. Consequently, you MAY find you have to adjust the neck TO GET RID OF FRET BUZZ. I did, and after some tinkering, its great. I love this for its ability to go from one extreme to another, via the dual double lipstick pickups, I play in a 50's beach boy style, and I can drive this waaay heavy if I want. I find a strait rock and roll 70's tone seems to fit this well. I have seen many 70's rocker videos with this style of guitar in their hands (maybe not this EXACT model, but close). I can see why.
Stock strings were good but I put a set of elixir strings on it, and it mellowed and heightened the tone at the same time. I think some people look at Danelectro as substandard. Ok, its not Gibson, but if your budget cries as much as your drive to explore beyond the norm, this is pretty much the cats meow. The finish on the blue and white is really retro. A blue with white vinyl looks just like my first car!

Comments about Danelectro Hodad Electric Guitar:

I am a classic rock guitar guy for over 5 decades and fell in love with my first Hodad, so now have 3 of them, to add to my diverse guitar collection. These are super cool guitars even though they can have some minor issues, typically easily correctable by a guitar tech. I adore the nice diversity of tones, lightweight design, classic vibe, and adjustable necks unlike other Danos. Two of mine came in dazzling sparkle light blue and royal blue colors that PROMPTLY get everyone's attention, and the other in a dark sparkle blue that looks equally cool under lights on stage. These are such fun guitars to play and enjoy with others! You owe it to yourself to try one!!

    Comments about Danelectro Hodad Electric Guitar:

    If you are looking for a guitar with an array of sounds varying from the depths of the ocean abyss to the Serengheti, then this wild experimenter's dream is the guitar for you. Don't let it's classic look fool you, this is capable from sounding great in Rock, Blues, Folk, Metal, Country, Rap, R&B, Jazz, ANYTHING! The push/pull tone nobs allow for an excellent array of possible sounds. This is my favorite guitar of all time! Although I have had my Danelectro Hodad for a long time, I am glad to see that Musician's Friend is now offering them. It is worth every cent and more! I would like to point out that music has been my life for the past ten years. Out of the 18 guitars that I own, this is by far my favorite one! And I have a Gibson Les Paul, among other great guitars.This guitar changed my life forever, and I am excited to see they are producing them again. If you are looking to be reinvigorated and filled with musical drive, this is your ticket to a musician's paradise. If I could, I would give it 6 out of 5 stars.

        Comments about Danelectro Hodad Electric Guitar:

        I own one of the original (Evets Corp) Hodads. These are true tone monsters but the new manufacturers screwed up just a little. The Evets models have a Bigsby style Vibrato with a chromed roller bridge, and sealed, high-quality Gotoh tuners.. Message to Musicians Friend, and all Retailers: Pressure the factory to bring back the original. Even so, this guitar, if they retained the original build quality, is still a
        tone monster and a ton of fun for pocket change.

          Comments about Danelectro Hodad Electric Guitar:

          I absolutely love this guitar. Not too heavy, great neck with easy access to the upper frets, and unique style make it one of my main go-to guitars. I rewired it so I have multiple single coil combinations instead of hummers, but that is just my style and not a reflection on the stock wiring. True to the original Dano tradition, with a touch of Mosrite, it is a great guitar, and for the price point, you can't go wrong.
