Danelectro 56-U2
Model made in Korea

The bridge is metal, with a wooden plate that supports the strings. Concerns, the wood wears it ... but hey, it's part of the charm.

21 frets, 2 lipstick pickups with a simple switch bridge / neck / both.

With two volume buttons, nice detail, tone independently for each microphone.

The neck and body wood tree. Know which tree ...


The handle is quite happening everywhere, the handling is very fast.
Ergonomic level ... well ... how to say ... already the strap system that attaches in the handle is not a horror of practice the guitar hanging out, I'm not super fan.
access to acute is not fantastic, but finding that his playground is the next big rhythm a little fat than that of the solo & co, it does not bother me.

Do you get a good sound easy? Oooooooh, yes!


I will not make friends, but let's be honest:
I find this scratch is a nightmare. It is not ergonomic, it would have been almost empty one's Fisher Price, the mechanics are very poor, there is plastic everywhere, the violin seems still very debatable ...

BUT, I do not know by what miracle, once plugged into my little Fender Blues Junior (with a Big Muff in between), the sound is terrible!
Neck pickup, the light is banging just enough, even without pushing the amp a little crunch that is super sexy ... really?
By pushing the saturation a bit, there are wonderful crunch, and even beyond, for the very large rock it retains a charm.

Central position we catch a kind of a little garish color that reminds me almost my Gretsch. There I even want to try a clean sound, no time for messing around, I blow up the big muff any binge, and brothels, how it sounds!

Bridge position, the same with less bass and brightness limited to reasonable limits. I think this is where the combo Fender / Dano is the most effective ... although in central ... mmmm ... and also with the neck pickup, too, these big bass there.

Well, well, you'll understand that scratching sound was really, really great.
It will not please everyone, it is clear, but the blues / rock / heavy rock that spot, I'm really happy!


Conclusion: As discussed above, I do not know what is happening with the scraper. On paper it is a nightmare, and yet we can not let go once you have tasted. Is it just that, it is called the charm of a legendary instrument? Defects we learn to love? At least for my part, I am more packaged.

I've had one month, and it completes my collection.

The value for money ... if you look at the "quality" generally very cheap, you could say it means. But when you see the sound that comes out of hell, for a price ranging between 250 and 300 €, let's be serious, it's free!

Do I regret my choice? No, and I think to offer him other little sisters of the brand, certainly Dano Pro, one of these four

Perfect for blues, rock n 'roll, pop
pure, but easy enough with distortion effect

I love the look, ct cheap, the lgret. There is no need to grant every ten minutes. I never pt string above
Report quality / price? Perfect

See below the other opinions ...
maintenance agreement it correctly but no more, I recovered opportunities in deregulated status as a post, it was necessary to adjust the neck and string height was a massacre ...


- Handle moderately pleasant, I am much more comfortable on my Takamine or my Sheraton ...
- Very light weight, you can do with yo-yo ... it is very small, I still find it difficult to adjust to its size, it's been years since I used to play with the big cases (Jumbo Takamine, Epiphone half cash, so ...)

The violin is really average, and that's a shame ... the buttons are very cheap plastic, the mechanical hard and very average quality, but hey, you get to give and to be fair but still ... Again a small oil bath was not superfluous


Raah sound is where this guitar is almost débile...10/10 captain!
serious warm position, position acute sixties rock'n'roll, with medium punch position incorporated all trades managing the tone knob and volume of both pickups ... in short, palette sixties, jazz, indie, rock, western spaghetti too ... class and personality ...
ask me what it's worth with the distortion, I play ... in clear or slightly crunch ...


I've had two months, bought second-hand, black (I chose the cream if there was the possibility, but hey ...)
she looks great, sounds extra for the rest of it done with small defects but focuses on this little ...
it's still amazing to have one like him for that price ...
I have an Epiphone Sheraton next door, so they are really complementary: the sheraton has held a more "serious", mature, to the sounds of jazz or laid, the Danelectro something more fufu, also more versatile, more teenage if you want, but its flexibility can also make sound move towards something more laid ...
So here's one that I really regret not having bought at most I think any change at the mechanics if possible ...

Danelectro 56-U2
Making Korean
21 frets, 2 lipsticks simple microphones, wired in series it seems to me, but to check ..
bridge, uh .. a piece of wood on a metal plate, all fixed by three screws nasty ..
hollow composite I do not know what.
1 volume and 1 tone with microphone, placed one over the other and a 3 position selector
a big fat handle that fulfills the hand of an honest man

on paper, it has nothing to exciting but visually, it has a certain charm, very dated sixties ..
I put 9 because the key is the sound that comes out of this assembly strange!


The handle is a bit confusing at first, with a very touching "sound cheap," but after a few hours, printing disappears, must be tamed a bit, what ..
anyway, it's not a race "flattering", so for technical demonstrations, look at Ibanez if I am!

Access to the acute is quite limited, the cut is wide, but the heel comes quickly to block the hand, at least in academic position, position "blues" can get the last box with no problem

this guitar weighs just heavier than a cell phone, what is puzzling about the sound that emanates from it ..


Sound .. is a kind of small miracle! water into wine .. not a sweet white, rather a Cotes du Rhone a little rough, if you see .. you could probably play a lot of things on it, but this seems scratches made for rock n 'roll .. the cable into the amp, a little crunch, and hop riffs keep coming .. jumping jack flash, all day and all of the night, communication breakdown, my generation., and after an hour the apartment smells of powder and sweat and we would drink a keg of booze well ..

good, more seriously, in clear or light to medium saturation, the sound has a unique personality; Péchu, not a dirty, with little sustain but a very bad temper! the output level is quite low, so you have to push the amp a little, but it is all the best ..

the bass and treble pickups perform very well function and a great addition to the intermediate position that sends a severe boost ..
the volume and tone knobs are not very practical to handle separately from one another, but hey I do not use it much ..

then, for very large saturation, it does not much .. a kind of nasty fuzz, not very nice .. for this purpose, there are more appropriate instruments ..


I have this little bomb for a few weeks and I play it every day ..

As a guitar addict obsessive, I'm getting a lot of guitars at home (much to the chagrin of my savings account ..) and I know I will not regret having adopted it, this is a copy of any other, has its strengths and limitations, and is wildly endearing!

I bought mine at 300 euros a luthier who did a little consignment shop, so it was perfectly set, which is always nice .. it seems a decent investment, no regrets!
