A reissue of a classic instrument from the early days of rock.

The 12-String Danelectro 12SDC Electric Guitar captures the jangly sounds of the '60s with a double-cutaway body made of laminated wood and 2 lipstick pickups. Modeled after the classic 59DC used by Jimmy Page, the guitar's "bottle" headstock is elongated to accommodate 12 sealed Gotoh tuners. It's wide neck makes the Danelectro 12 string easy to play. An improved fixed bridge is fully adjustable. The Danelectro 12SDC guitar's '59 vintage look includes details like a matte finish, seal-shaped pickguard, and textured tape binding on the sides.

    As reviewed by Phil on 8/6/2014

    I was pleasantly surprised with the playability and sound right out of the box. So much jangle I thought the reverb was on. Great job with that. The aluminum nut probably helps. Issues: the switch is junk. A Radio Shack SPDT switch (center off, such as 275-654 with the top clipped) fixed that. The tone cap is way too big. A .100 uf is too dark. I went with a .022, but .047 would be good too. The first fret was low on one side, causing buzzing. Had to pry it up a little. That said, it's a very good playing and sounding instrument, especially given its material makeup. The 12 strings and series wiring help cover the thinness of the pickups. Now if they just made orange an option...

  • If you don't have a Rickenbacker....

    As reviewed by Daniel Klementovich on 5/28/2012

    You may be disapointed to own this axe. HOWEVER,if you buy this, you will NOT be let down to achieve that Byrds,Led Zep, Tom Petty sound with your favorite pedals. Yes, it is a solid body. Yes it's composite wood.Yes it doesn't have a resounding chamber. But, the neck is straight and the neck is small for no-so-large hands. It plays like a 6 string electric. After extensive shopping online and a long awaited ship date. Iit was worth the hassle and a 6 month wait. You have so much control over the sound through very simple controls.Watch the volume. I recommend this as an inexpensive and good-sounding alternative to a Rick. But, set your sights big. I know I will. Get it in the mean time. But make your sound your own.

  • Great axe for the money!

    As reviewed by doug dickeson on 4/23/2014

    Pros: Great jangly sound, string changing should be easy (Ricky owners, you know what I'm talking about!) Inexpensive enough that you don't have to worry about it much. By far the easiest electric 12 that I've ever played. Cool retro Dano look. Cons: Neck stability leaves just a bit to be desired. You need to be a bit more careful when playing to not put too much pressure on the neck. Otherwise, it starts to go out of tune. Overall, though? it's less than $400, and a great axe for the money!
