Danelectro ‘59DC Short-Scale Basses Released

The new Danelectro® ‘59DC short-scale electric bass slots comfortably in an area often regarded as a ‘half-way-house’ between electric guitar and conventional full-scale bass guitar.

The combination of the natural acoustic properties of the iconic, Danelectro semi-hollow, double-cutaway shorthorn body shape, and the high-end chime and clarity from a pair of the company’s legendary Lipstick® pickups, offers an additional percussive attack and a whole new sonic dimension to the ‘59DC short-scale bass.

The versatility of the new Danelectro ‘59DC short-scale bass, is just one reminder of the Danelectro legacy that has proven popular with musicians around the world. Indeed, with a 3-way pickup selector and stacked volume and tone controls for each pickup, the deeper voice of the Lipstick angled neck pickup, with the tone control backed off, delivers a warm sweet tone that will also please the most hardened jazz player.

The Danelectro ’59DC short-scale bass also includes milestone features that highlight and reflect the company’s recognised vintage legacy, as early pioneers of rock n roll, including the much-loved Dano ‘coke-bottle’ headstock and familiar ‘seal-shape’ scratchplate. Modern additions include vintage style smooth-geared tuners, a precision-cut aluminium nut and fully adjustable bridge.

The 59DC short-scale bass comes with a c-profile bolt-on neck, 24 fret fingerboard, with lightweight construction and is available in an all-over Black Metalflake, Copper and Vintage Cream finishes.
