Based on the sonic character of their original NOS single-coil pickups, the NOS+ pickups in this '59M NOS+ guitar have been optimized for hotter output and livelier tone overall — punchier lows and mids, and highs with more clarity and bite. They sound particularly amazing for bluesy slide work and pair beautifully with an overdriven tube amplifier.Instantly identifiable Dano looks and sound
The classic Dano look and sound may be every bit as familiar around the world as just about any other guitar design out there. It may have not sold the numbers other classic electric guitar designs have, but you've heard it on hundreds of records. The Danelectro '59M NOS+ captures this vibe for you in spades, and we're digging that vibe here at Sweetwater. Built with its feet firmly in the vintage design of the older Danos, the '59M NOS+ still offers you the ability to go from really old-school Nashville twang to modern fuzzed-out garage rock. And you'll look the part no matter what your tone calls for.Construction updates for modern reliability
Like a great many vintage guitar designs, older Danos can sometimes fall victim to reliability issues. But you'll be able to gig your '59M NOS+ electric guitar without worry, thanks to modern updates that bring the guitar up to today's high-quality standards.
Instead of the traditional hardboard body, these guitars utilize a spruce body with hardboard as the top and back.
You'll get great intonation up and down the neck with the intonation-adjustable wraparound bridge. And while it's unfortunately missing in the older instruments, you get an adjustable truss rod to make sure your Dano '59M NOS+'s neck stays straight and plays true.Danelectro '59M NOS+ Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
