      Comments about Danelectro '66 Classic Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      I had high hopes for this guitar and I wasn't disappointed upon receiving it. Each of the pickups have its own tonal character and voice. The fat single coil in the neck sounds very different than the lipstick humbucker and the coil tap gives a different single coil lipstick tone than the humbucker.

      A Strat or telecaster has different pickup options but the tonal character are variations of the pickups. This guitar literally gives you 3 different types of pickups along with the 3 way selector switch so your tonal options at your fingertips are vast.

      Some riffs sound better in humbucker mode while others sound better using the neck fat single coil and so on. And since this is a semi-hollowbody you get these airy type of tones that add an awesome tonal quality to your playing.

      The finish was excellent. Has a good thick neck and the electronics seemed well done. Action out of the box was perfect. The single coils had no excess buzz or humm and are relatively very quiet on the 60 cycle hum front.

      Is this guitar worth its asking price? I would say with the full arsenal of tonal qualities and voices, you could easily make this your only guitar. A Strat or Tele can sometimes make you think it'd be nice to have a lipstick tone right here or it'd be nice to have a thick humbucker tone so you pull out your other guitar— and this guitar gives all the pickup options you envision your riffs needing. And if you're a Les Paul or Gretsch player this guitar provides the single coil tones not available on the double humbucker.

        Comments about Danelectro '66 Classic Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

        First Danelectro ever, looks and plays great right out of the box. Impressed because I read it was set up in California. Really reminds me of a Mosrite Combo. Electronics are great, love the coil split switch. Got the PRS wide body case- works fine. Maybe one of the best I ever got, and I've had a bunch. I highly recommend it.
