    Comments about Danelectro '56 Baritone Electric Guitar:

    This is much better as a six string bass guitar. I put fender bass 6 strings on mine ( scale is fine) and it became much more versatile. They were called "click bass"in the 50s doubling the bass line, usually muted. The vibe the look and tone are a gas. So much fun to play.

      This has been something I have been wanting for years but just never had the spare buckage to act on.
