Join Date: Feb ; Location: Norway; Posts: NGD – ’58 Danelectro U2. So this little thing A vintage Danelectro is on my wishlist as well.
The freshly tweaked ’56 series Danelectro guitars mark the third reissue of Nathan Daniel’s original U2 model. While the first reissue, launched back in , closely followed the specs and aesthetics of the original guitar ‘Coke bottle’ headstock, rosewood bridge saddle, vinyl body tape and the like , the 56 Pro was what might be described as ‘pimped’. A stonking slab of musical beed. The Coke bottle headstock had a notch cut into it a diet version, if you will , the bridge came loaded with individual saddles to allow better intonation and the classic white vinyl body tape had gone.
The ’56 Pro was a great guitar, but losing the quirky features did dent its vintage vibe a bit. Fast-forward to the new ’56 Series and the unintonatable rosewood bridge and body tape – in old spec ‘Ostrich Pattern’ no less – are back where they belong. There’s also some curious stuff going on at the headstock end of some of these new models. The launch of these new models coincides with a streamlining of the Danelectro guitar and bass range. Now, only the new single-cutaway ’56 models, the existing double- cutaway ’59 guitars and the ‘Dead On 58’ Longhorn bass will be available.
But that’s your lot, Dano-wise. The new white Dano with gold hardware is pretty… weird. You soon warm to it and whisper this it actually looks pretty good. The most striking part is the oversized headstock. This headstock type is known as the ‘Full Bell’ and featured on some Dano models from to

The Danelectro U2 is a dual-pickup hollow bodied guitar made of Masonite and shaped similar to a Les Paul model guitar. It was originally made from the years to but was re-issued in the late 90s, in in a slightly modified form as the ’56 Pro, and again in as the ’56 Single Cutaway. The sound of a U2 is distinctive of the Danelectro guitar, coming from its lipstick pickups which when both selected are wired in series rather than the more standard parallel used today by most big brands.
Construction materials used by Danelectro in this period are quite unusual for guitar making. The U2’s body is made of a poplar wood frame with Masonite used for both the top and back, with the side of the body being bound with creme coloured vinyl. Both a single-pickup version the U1 and triple-pickup version the U3 , were manufactured and sold alongside the U2. The U1, U2 and U3 were first reissued between and , with the U3 including new features such as a six-position switch which would allow the player to select bridge, middle, neck, bridge and neck, bridge and middle, middle and neck, or with the “blow” switch, all three pickups at once.
In the 56 Pro was released as a limited edition re-issue of the U2. Although a re-issue, the Danelectro 56 Pro had some distinctive changes from the original models, these changes include:. Vintage Guitar Magazine reviewed the 56 Pro in their June issue, saying “In all, the 56 Pro is a very cool retro axe with a quality fit and finish, easy playability and that unmistakable Danelectro tone and vibe. The reissue comes in four versions: two lipstick pickups with an either a bottle-shaped, bell-shaped, or dolphin-shaped headstock, and a three lipstick pickup version with two of the pickups side-by-side to create a humbucker, paired with a dolphin-shaped headstock.
It is also available as a bass with the dolphin headstock.

View Danelectro reissues for sale at Forsyths. Danelectro was founded in by Nat Daniels in Neptune, New Jersey, and they were always something of an oddity in the guitar world. There was no shortage of companies producing high quality guitars in the US in the mid 50s: indeed, this was the start of the golden era of the solid body electric guitar.
Likewise, many companies saw the commercial potential of producing cheap solid body guitars that could be marketed to amateurs who aspired to playing Gibsons and Fenders but were restricted to more modest budgets — but these instruments were typically designed with profit rather than playability in mind, and were not the most pleasant instruments to play. Daniels had something rather noble in mind: understanding that sky high actions and clubby baseball bat necks were hardly the best way to encourage a beginner to persevere with their instrument, he set out to design an instrument that would be cheap to manufacture yet would offer the same playability and comfort expected of much more expensive instruments.
The first Danelectros were odd affairs, the necks being built around a thick aluminium tube and having a peculiar box like profile. By however this had been refined into a rather better design with aluminium rods providing the reinforcement to a comfortable, Fender like neck profile and the first of the classic Dano designs, the U2 was born.
The double cutaway model nicknamed the Short Horn and favoured by Jimmy Page followed in along with a series of other designs that are now represented in the current range of reissues. With impeccable timing, Daniels sold the company in the late 60s just before the onslaught of Japanese budget guitars began to demolish the popularity of US made budget instruments, and the company closed its doors in In the s the Danelectro brand resurfaced with a range of reissue U style guitars made in Korea, rapidly expanding to cover the majority of the most popular original designs.
The original Korean line possibly expanded a little too quickly and the line briefly disappeared again to be replaced by cheaper Chinese made products — this move has recently been reversed and the guitars are again being sourced from Korea. This most recent version of the company has been bowling us over with some really great, affordable instruments.

I recently inherited my Dad’s 6 String Longhorn Bass. Looking for a part for it, and some advice. It is missing one of the white “flipper” switches for the pickups- that is the part I need.
From the research I have done they re-located the Bridge Pickup during the ’58 production run. If that is the case, do I have an original design one? I cannot find another one quite like it. Also, it is in a light “yellow’ tweed coffin case- is that an original Danelectro case, or is it simply what my Dad stored it in? I contacted Michelle at “Danelectro”.
