This 2001 Danelectro DanoBlaster is in excellent cosmetic condition showing signs of use and play wear throughout but no real scratches or dings. The neck is a nice C shape with a 1 11/16" nut width and feels very good in hand. The medium jumbo frets show almost no signs of play wear and have a ton of life left in them. This guitar plays great up and down the fingerboard. The original Dano-tuned single coil pickups sounds fantastic in every position and ring out loud and clear. They also have a nice squawk sound in the two and four position. The onboard effects in this guitar are fully functional and have been cleaned and tested. These onboard effects are literally a blast to play with and I have had more fun with this guitar than any other guitar that I’ve had in the shop for a while! The built-in distortion is over the top and actually sounds pretty great. The chorus and vibrato are where this guitar shines, in my opinion, and are extremely useful and easy to operate. The body shape is noticeably inspired by the Semie Moseley guitars of the 1960s and give a nod to the days past when reverb drenched guitar music surfed its way onto the airwaves and into our hearts. If you want a fun guitar, run, don’t walk towards this one! A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
