    Danelectro BaritonePublished on 09/15/03 at 15:00
    music store, the guy was trying to get rid of his danos cheap so I got it for $200

    the sound and feel are terrific
    the big fat strings really howl with a slide

    it's a little neck-heavy

    it's pretty good considering the body is mostly plastic
    it looks cool, sounds good and stays in tune

    a good value if you're looking for a different sound

    All Danelectro models are made in Korea, as saying that the manufacturer is closely monitoring its production!
    22 frets, 2 pickups neck and bridge type lipstick with the possibility to use both at the same time, we get a big sound and volume gain because the two are additive rather than as a complete connection of micro normal.
    The bridge is the old wood with a linear array to set the intonation, not super accurate, but often enough if we used the old trestle.

    All Danelectro models are made in Korea, as saying that the manufacturer is closely monitoring its production!

    The bridge is the old wood with a linear array to set the intonation, not super accurate, but often enough if we used the old trestle.
    2 volume, 2 tone, 3-position selector
    the handle is longer than a standard guitar, 30 'instead of 25' (that of a low is about 35 ').
    The tuning keys are very inaccurate as the models of 50 years but once we found the fair, they do not move, it's a good point!
    The body is hollow, not like hearing about 1 / 2 boxes but a slight resonance which can thicken the sound. A white plastic style duct tape goes around the edge, like all Danelectro elsewhere.
    In short there was a violin quite good for a Korean guitar, probably as good as the original U.S. (who have never been very expensive).

    UTILIZATION

    The finish of the race is really good, no problems with frets that exceed or improperly filed down. The size and destabilize against guitarists, and bassists! Attention, we must get in mind that this is another instrument
    The body has a form type Les Paul with access to acute very correct.
    the guitar is very light but balanced despite the length of the handle.
    The sound is good for several reasons:
    the thickness of the strings gives the body
    the body is low you get more roundness
    the pickups are good, no question of replacing them, Danelectro was in what is best for this type of guitar, and select them both gives a sacred fish.

    SOUNDS

    I want to say that I converted into the baritone 6-string bass guitar, that is to say, guitar tuned an octave below. The baritone is suitable for lots of styles including nu metal because it falls in A, but others use it for beautiful sounds serious bite on the territory of the low: jazz (see Pat Metheny on his latest album) rock, pop (The Beatles on The White Album), blues and film music (James Bond, the Western Italian 70s).
    For my part I found my happiness in quite diverse styles: surf music, The Cure, Placebo, Sonic Youth, funk without much problem.
    I plugged into a PC with a V-Amp which I exploit the effects and function of direct box.
    The baritone makes well saturated but it is not my main purpose, I prefer a delay with chorus to get the soft and plaintive sound of Robert Smith of the Cure.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for three months, recording for hybrid compositions between film music, pop and surf.
    The sound and comfort suited me perfectly but I found it very difficult to adjust properly to make it enjoyable to play and just about every round, the low E is naturally not enough space to resonate on 30 ', we are left with the same problem as the 5-string bass and so serious. Once set it is already something else and my fears have flown.
    The price / quality ratio is excellent, regardless of maker can now offer updated vintage as good?
    To be honest, if I had the choice, I would not have opted for the Danelectro but a Fender Bass VI, or it is rare, expensive even his jap reissue of 1996 (which is a little more worse than the original). If we had given a version Mexican Fender Squier or Korean, I'd be tempted. But I think you made the best choice because the Danelectro guitar is amazing that makes you want to look to other models: the convertible electric / acoustic, 4 string bass, the electric standard as that used by Jimmy Page for the slide.

    I think the guitar is Korean, very good finish
    2 microphones lipsticks is the whole point of the machine,
    3-position switch in series with the microphone in a central position, hence higher output level
    fixed bridge consists of a metal plate 3 points topped by a wooden plate nut
    volume and tone micro
    Bolt
    the handle is quite large, classic shape, with pulling the strings of a higher (from 12 to 56 I think), it's a game man enough, you have to fight a little, it is the exact antithesis of the neck Ibanez ultra speed. As bass player, it does me no problem. But when I pass on my strato, I seem to play the chewing gum

As bass player, it does me no problem. But when I pass on my strato, I seem to play the chewing gum

    important, this skyscraper is a semi-hollow without vents built in some sort of timber, but what you told me is that it's plywood. This makes sense since the baritone is nothing but the reprint of a model of 50 years and that it was done much at the time. That same kind of instrument that preceded the arrival of the 1st Fender bass. Then, after their arrival, the baritone have fallen into disuse

    brief violin making is quite cheap and the resonance is quite "upturn" but that's what makes the charm of the craft ... is pure vintage, do not forget

    Are we talking about is a baritone guitar, that is granted a fifth lower than a normal guitar so the Do Re Mi Sol La I believe

    The equivalent to the grave The grave of a low ... without reaching its course

    Accuracy, here plays like a normal guitar, the strings are not sufficiently spaced fingers to play like a bass.

    UTILIZATION

    The access to acute: who cares, this is the vocation of the plow

    the guitar is very light (Because plywood), the handle looks like rle known jazz bass, in short, it's vintage in ergonomics, take it or leave it.

    The big downside to this instrument is the bridge that is pure crap. adjusting the harmonic is almost impossible because all the strings based on the same piece of wood, which fits fairly dangerous. Result, are quite false intonations from box 8 or 9, however, we reach around. I plan to mount a Bigsby on the machine and there, I say no ...

    SOUNDS

    I was looking for a true original and second scraper point me to a Fender Bass VI at the origin (used by Robert Smith and the guys from Placebo) but is as much as the vintage reissue to Japan a few years ago could not be found or expensive.

    when I saw the Danelectro, jai literally flashed on the concept of original vintage and hyper

    As bassist and guitarist, I created a particular game mixing the two, however, c'état the best thing to do because no one plays on this thing for so times he must give up.

    Today, I use for compounds electros connected either plugs or my combo fender hot rod deluxe and there: it is a pure joy. Ca claque is original, it's a very personal, out of time who works wonders and is noticed immediately. When I slip into a composite MP3 on my PC at a party, immediately, everyone asks me "what's that scratching sound great?"

    they called here the sounds "twang" used in western spagetti, I think I have heard in the soundtrack of tonotons flingeurs. In short, it sounds out of this world that makes u super interesting paradox with the modernity of electro that I made.

    I know that sounds like serious metalheads scratches 7-string, etc): Gentlemen, this machine is not for you, the type of sound has nothing to do with the metal, it's vintage point bar!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Most

    - The concept very original
    - Sound absolutely terrible
    - The ability to play bass + scraper on one instrument

    the least

    - Wood cheap but it's part of his, it would not ring as well if it was built as a sold-body classical
    - The bridge to change
    Do not try to find it, it is no longer manufactured for 2 or 3 years I think. We see a few on e-bay
    I had to pay 3000 francs
    very good quality / price ratio

    Ah, Korea. It Hits the little fingers paid 30 cents an hour manufacturing guitars at night. The guitar is finished with his feet on some models it seems, with hoops that exceed buttons that have the game, etc.. Regarding my own, it is perfectly finished and quality workmanship is impeccable. Well, it's a baritone guitar, you give it a fifth or a third as a normal guitar as you want, cf. lower. The pickups are Lipstick, single coil pickups covered with a metal shield, legend has it that the first Dano had hidden microphones made from half-tubes of lipstick, metal, hence the name. For cons, the microphones have a fantasy: instead of being connected in parellel as on most guitars, they......

    Ah, Korea. It Hits the little fingers paid 30 cents an hour manufacturing guitars at night. The guitar is finished with his feet on some models it seems, with hoops that exceed buttons that have the game, etc.. Regarding my own, it is perfectly finished and quality workmanship is impeccable. Well, it's a baritone guitar, you give it a fifth or a third as a normal guitar as you want, cf. lower. The pickups are Lipstick, single coil pickups covered with a metal shield, legend has it that the first Dano had hidden microphones made from half-tubes of lipstick, metal, hence the name. For cons, the microphones have a fantasy: instead of being connected in parellel as on most guitars, they are mounted in series on all Danos including this one, so that the volume and sound are very different as you put neck pickup / bridge pickup / both. In my case, I use only two microphones activated position and I play on set volume and tone of each pickup. The bridge is said below, is a piece of metal topped by a piece of wood. on the other hand even if it does not look solid and the strings are a bit chiantes to change, I think the original bridge participates in his guitar and I did not hit (I have tried to modified bridge, they do not sound on mine). That said, not look robust, mine has like 10 years and the bridge did not budge - but I'm not angry either. The handle resembles a hybrid between that of a Fender Jazz bass and a Les Paul, the marriage of carp and rabbit sum. If you want a better comparison is halfway between a six and a Fender bass baritone les paul. In my case, I find it very comfortable and I can play in agreements for a long time without fatigue.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very comfortable, slip behind the veneer of fine, the key is of reasonable quality, it does not warp over time and is easily adjusted. Access to treble is identical to that of a Les Paul - but if you want a real access to acute, buy that unseemly Longhorn. The guitar is super light, from what I've read the material used is of Masonite, a type of pressed wood. The box is hollow. The balance of the guitar playing is perfect for sitting, standing on the other hand is worse because of the bizarre position under the handle of the clip. In addition to the fasteners hold moderately well. The sound, man, it's fabulous. The twang of 60s is obtained just by plugging the guitar and playing on it without special adjustment. If you want to give you an idea, listen to the soundtrack of Twin Peaks or of spaghetti westerns (the good the bad and the ugly in particular) that are made with single-coil baritone of the same type as this one. The aesthetics of the guitar is very successful, mine is black with a very brilliant polish the most beautiful effect is still very bright despite the time and a little touch of Pliz highlights beautifully. I like to play on an instrument that I find beautiful.

    SOUNDS

    Despite appearances this guitar is quite versatile, the only thing we can not do it with the metal because of the type of microphone but it sounds cons of hell in both fuzz (I have a big muff , thunder), Air (twang, tremolo, reverb, etc.). and to make sweet music (the guitar, this one, the same as mine, was used by Labradford 'e luxo so') J 'uses this beauty at once with my Laney VC 15, reverb on the clean channel bottom and it sounds bright in the treble, in the round bass and pretty as any, or with guitar rig 3 or Amplitube Fender and again it sends including using the Bassman / Tweedman, which makes me say that on a real bassman it should sound really good but I never tried ... on the other hand must be good for HP to hear every nuance of the serious (a celestion vintage 12 "connected to my laney sounds much better than the Jensen 10" original). One thing to note, as a bass guitar that is destined to play with very old strings which all the gloss is gone, otherwise it will slap to death and I do not like it at all. The strings on mine were never changed and I will not do it if I did not break ... The sustain of the guitar, because of the hollow body and the strong pull of the strings is particularly long and arpeggios at very slow tempo, it's magic on this Dano. As effects, I think you have a spring reverb, tremolo and / or chorus (Danelectro Wasabi is my choice), and good old fuzz if you like it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had it 5 years and has about 10 years. I play almost every day on it and it never moves (I'm not angry either, must say). She has a great sound, easy to adjust and works wonders in the slow tempo music where you hear every nuance of vibration of the strings when the sustain. It comes cheap, used like 350-450 euros (?) And the price / quality ratio is unbeatable seen that apart from Danelectro there is no such guitar in this price range. Basically, I love it and yes I would make the same choice if I was the fly :-) Besides, I almost trade it against something much more ... And I kept it.

    Complements of 30/01/2010:
    - Pitch: this pitch seems to have a Dano 28 ". Data on the net are contradictory on the subject, but mine is a little longer than my epiphone baritone that it has a pitch of 27". Are there can be several models, including one would a bass VI with a pitch of 29.7 "?
    - Tuning: tuning several classics are available, the "major third" (CFB <span class="music-symbol" style="font-family: Arial Unicode MS,Lucida Sans Unicode;">♭</span> E <span class="music-symbol" style="font-family: Arial Unicode MS,Lucida Sans Unicode;">♭</span> GC), the "perfect Fourth" (BEADF <span class="music-symbol" style="font-family: Arial Unicode MS,Lucida Sans Unicode;">♯</span> B) and perfect fifth (ADGCEA) respectively do, and if. The big metal tuning so that stains Mushok in G <span class="music-symbol" style="font-family: Arial Unicode MS,Lucida Sans Unicode;">♯ (G</span> # D # G # C # E # A #) I&#39;ve never tried.
    - Strings: for the do or if, d&#39;addario light (13-62) are fine. For the, better take 14-68 (D&#39;Addario) or 12-68 (elixir) or 14-70 (ghs, la bella, ernie ball - it&#39;s the ones I feel), if your attention nut is metal like mine, do not take larger than 70 it would not go down ...

    Update of 26/02/2011
    I just spent the evening playing on this marvel who has not left the house since ... 7 years already? It was settled and modified by a luthier about six months ago and I advise you frankly to make the changes that all luthiers are familiar with the original danos on reissues:
    - Replace the nut if it is plastic for a metal (on baritone, he is already in metal, so it&#39;s not worth it)
    - Make notches in the wooden bridge that the strings do not move too much on it. The sound is not changed as if the original were replaced by a metal nut and noise are reduced.
    - Adjust the microphone: all those like me who have Korean reissues of the early 2000s will tell you ESPECIALLY do not change the pickups! And especially not a baritone! A simple height adjustment only
    - Do not make the economy a planimetry and possibly polishing the frets, do not forget that these are guitars made to the chain without any regard for quality of finish. This operation does a bone, but it&#39;s worth every penny.

    I would do if this election? Tomorrow I lose or I&#39;ll break after tomorrow I bought another one (after a little cry on this one anyway)
