That signature growl

The two single-coil Lipstick pickups in the'59DC Long Scale Bass deliver the one-of-a-kind tone that has captured the imagination of so many bassists over the decades. With their coils wrapped around an alnico magnet and then wrapped in tape, these pickups harken back to the vintage tone of rock's earliest days. The result is a round and punchy sound that truly stands alone. And with a 3-way pickup selector plus 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

Founded in 1947, Danelectro produced guitar amps throughout the 1940s before expanding into guitars in the '50s. With their beloved quirky hollowbody designs, hardboard/plywood construction, and Lipstick pickups, the iconic Danelectro 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; Sweetwater is proud to offer you this formidable lineup of iconic vintage-inspired instruments.
