Danelectro Left Handed Electric Guitars
The star of the left-handed Danelectro show is the '59 Original Left-Handed Electric Guitar. Like its name suggests, it's based on a design dating back to 1959, which stayed popular throughout the '60s and is ready to make a big comeback in your hands. This instrument gives you the choice of black or copper finishes, and it's all decked out with a swanky-looking curved pickguard and concentric tone/volume controls, plus side-edge tape modeled after the original '50s texture. The unique voice of the '59 Original comes from a few subtle features carried forward from the genuine vintage article, including its metal nut, lipstick-tube single coil pickups and fixed saddle. All these things add up to a guitar with a look and a sound that are all its own.
When the 1959 Danelectro first came out, it wasn't anything glamorous - in fact, it was sold through a department store catalog. But that humble beginning is part of its charm, and although it was originally meant as a plain and affordable mass-market guitar, its design made it into something of a legend. Today's Danelectro left handed electric guitars carry on the legacy, offering you an instrument that may surprise you with its affinity for jazz, slide guitar and just about every style of rock.
