A modernized classic

The Danelectro 57 oozes vintage U2 vibe and classic Dano style. This guitar's time-honored semi-hollowbody construction adds a rich resonance to leads and chords. Thanks to its spruce frame and inner center block, the 57 won't feed back as easily onstage as the OG — though it can certainly be coaxed into feedback territory for high-gain applications. The maple neck features a classic Coke Bottle headstock and a 14"-radius pau ferro fingerboard for high performance and a timeless look.

That Danelectro sound

The Danelectro 57's Vintage '50s Lipstick pickups pack, in ample supply, that one-of-a-kind Dano tone that has captured the imagination of so many guitarists over the last six decades. The result is a sound that truly stands alone — jangly, with a punchy low midrange and a treble kick. And with a 3-way pickup selector, plus stacked volume and tone controls for each pickup, you'll have a lot of options for dialing in your ideal tone for any track.

An iconic American brand

With their beloved quirky hollowbody designs, hardboard/plywood construction, and iconic Lipstick pickups, Danelectro's guitar designs are instantly recognizable. Among other innovations, Danelectro introduced the baritone guitar in 1956, and the electric sitar in 1967. From guitar gods Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck to Who bassist John Entwhistle (check out the bass solo on "My Generation") to country superstar Glen Campbell, Tom Petty lead guitarist Mike Campbell, and the ever-eclectic Wilco guitarist and solo artist Nels Cline, Danos have become staples in the guitar and bass arsenals of top artists in all genres. Now Danelectro is back again and better than ever in the 57; Sweetwater is proud to offer you this formidable lineup of iconic vintage-inspired instruments.
