HI MY NAME IS CHRIS I LIVE IN THE U.K. I PLAY BASS GUITAR I HAVE BEEN PLAYING SINCE THE AGE OF 12 I AM NOW 57 SO QUITE A LONG TIME. I HAVE BEEN IN MANY BANDS OVER THE YEARS IN THE 60'S I TOURED EUROPE. I DID GIVE UP FOR A FEW YEARS THEN STARTED PLAYING AGAIN WITH LOCAL BANDS ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. THE 70'S FOR ME WAS THE BEST BANDS SUCH AS ZEPP THE WHO DEEP PURPLE AND STILL TO THIS DAY I AM A ROCKER.
I PUT IN A BID ON E BAY FOR MY DANO IT WAS A USED BASS,I HAD ORIGINALLY BEEN LOOKING FOR A LONGHORN BUT FOUND THE DC . I BOUGHT IT FROM DAVE BRONZE WHO WAS ERIC CLAPTONS BASSIST, AND LIVES IN MY HOME TOWN. I WON THE BID AND PAID 190 POUNDS FOR IT A STEAL ITS GREAT
ITS LIGHT THE NECK IS GREAT THE TONES ARE NOT UNLIKE THAT OF A RICKENBACKER I ALSO HAVE ONE OF THEM. WHEN PLAYED THROUGH MY AGUILA RIG ITS PRETTY AWSOME. EVEN AT THE NEW PRICE ITS A GREAT BASS. BUY ONE.
THE STRAP BUTTONS ARE A BIT AWKWARD AND THE STRAP HAS FROM TIME TO TIME COME OFF. CAN FEED BACK DUE TO THE CONSTRUCTION BUT IF YOU CAN CONTROL IT THE SUSTAIN IS GREAT. NOT TOO SURE ABOUT THE TUNERS A BIT ON THE SMALL SIDE THEN IT DOES ADD TO THE LOOK OF THE BASS
PRETTY BASIC CONSTRUCTION BUT STURDY AND SOLID IN FACT BY ALL THE RULES OF BASS CONSTRUCTION THIS BASS SHOULD NOT WORK, BUT BELEIVE ME IT DOES AND IT DOES IT VERY WELL.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BASS BUY ONE YOU WILL LOVE IT. IT SITS ALONGSIDE MY RICKENBACKER ON STAGE SO I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL, AND THE RICKENBACKER IS ONE OF THE BEST BASSES YOU CAN GET SO I THINK THATS A GREAT TESTAMENT TO THIS CHEAP BUT FANTASTIC INSTRUMENT
Made in Korea.
Well ... characteristics for all has been said ... but I insist on the need really is the cheap home cheap. The tuners do not agree very well and it is horrible to turn. The bridge is sketchy, not adjustable, and all the strings do not go in (do not try to install ropes with a big pull). The knobs are poor plastoc, the body is a sandwich of plastic over a wooden frame, the widgets to put the strap are ugly, fragile, and the wrong place ... Only the handle is not too badly screwed.
Note that I have the black version with sequins ... and this is particularly atrocious seen up close.
You ask me why I bought it? Well, I will explain below.
So which is quite nice is that it is very very low light. It holds up pretty well. We can do well with the con on stage. As I'm jumping style in every sense and I roll over, it is convenient. The handle is bonnard rather fast. We easily get a good sound, but it is certainly not thanks to the knobs.
Another nice, as it is hollow, it sounds good. So nice to play de-plugée in his sofa.
I bought this bass because I needed a low mid granted for occasions punk (hence the ugly choice of color). The pickups are really great fun, they make a clear sound, a little digging, that a little twang. This is a super good bass for the punk (Fat Mike of No Fx plays above), but it would also be perfect for the garage rock, all styles that eventually-billy, country and even more styles. For the rest, forget. Personally I love the sound. The construction of this instrument is atrocious, but at least it sounds ... which is always better than the reverse. In addition it is endearing. I play on a configuration Mazzette Lowrider for overdrive and a hot preamp Tech21 bassdriver I clean rule, and I get all that on an amp and a Genz Benz 2x15 cabinet chillbass. It sends severe, it not bleed, and it looks good living and especially the sound of the Danelectro. Content.
I had a LOT of bass for 15 years that I make music: Rick, USA Fender, Warwick, Musicman, ... Currently I play on an Ibanez ATK Japanese which was customized at Wild guitars. As I also tickles the 6 string, I bought a Danelectro newer and it has never left me, so I bought a bass from the same brand. It's ugly, badly screwed up, but it sounds and it's really cheap. The value is just incredible, so I would do this choice ... and if I had a bigger apartment, I probably will launch a small collection.

The low handle super enjoyable, fairly well rounded with a thick grip trs fast.
it is super Legris (it is hollow) and, made a pleasure trs my back. It is also very practical to sing, has not cut away.
the handle is cleared from the bottom up, it goes everywhere ...
the handle is slippery, Arian.
Good rock sound type sixties. Excellent low-punk, surf, and even garage.
Not really heavy in sound yet still even find a pretty good depth.
I found him a true original sound and excellent quality for its price
I love him and I'm going to marry.
(Emphasis everywhere as eight notes for 10 and not to remain objective because it is still not a Fender (Precision Bass))
