Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the Danelectro 59M Electric Guitar in Chianti. 25" scale length. 1.66" nut width. .80" depth at 5th fret. 6 lbs 2oz.
The iconic Danelectro 59 model, with its short horn doublecut design and and sweeping pickguard, has found a home in the hands of arena legends and club kings for decades.
The super light spruce body, dressed in a Danelectro's exclusive Chianti, is amazingly resonant and alive, and "bound" with that trademark Dano tone.
Classic sounds and timeless colors simply fall from these wonderful guitars.
Now this flagship guitar is made even more magnificent with the recent discovery of a limited quantity of lipstick pickups manufactured, and promptly misplaced, in 1999. That's last millenia, folks.
And, when the engineers at Danelectro got their hands on these pickups they realized that they had more twang, more brilliance, and more body than any of the lipsticks Danelectro had ever used.
Why? Degauzed magnets? Different manufacturing techniques? A long lost pickup voodoo?
Fact is, that with these NOS Lipsticks in these 59M's has yielded what is simply the best sounding 59's yet. The beautiful lipstick colors and tonal textures are laced to a pair of stacked pots providing individual tone and volume controls for each pickup: even more tonal flexibility.
Holding everything down is a fully adjustable wrap around bridge for vintage look and vibe, but with modern intonation and action abilities.
The Danelectro 59M Modified Chianti Electric Guitar with 15 year old lipstick pickups is instantly legendary and absolutely limited in number. Once they're gone they ain't comin' back.
So grab one of these soon-to-be-mythical guitars while you can.
