Danelectro 54 Modern 2000s Prototype One Off Rare Brown Tweed w Black Gator Side Tape 1st Series Style w Full Bell Headstock. Attention collectors and Dano geeks! Incredibly rare, modern production, one off prototype 54 Tweed First Series style guitar with Full Bell headstock and new tweed style gig bag. Guitar is in excellent condition. This guitar also sports the black faux gator side tape which could be found on a very few of those earliest models.
Another striking element here is the Full Bell headstock with spiral curly cue graphics around the Danelectro name. The modern twist here is the addition of the lipstick pickups (keeping with that classic Dano look and sound).The First Series guitars had plastic covered pickups that were taped into the back of the pickguard. The lipstick case housing would eventually become the standard for Danelectros after 1956 or so.
The guitar looks, plays, and sounds fantastic with that classic, glassy, chime from these lipstick pickups. There is no serial number or country of origin sticker on this guitar because it is a one off / prototype model that has never seen full production. I was informed that this guitar was made in Korea as most modern Danelectros are.
This guitar was most likely produced within the last 2-3 years although Im not really sure as there is no documentation. The guitar has no nicks or dents or scratches and is in excellent condition. Listed as open box as the guitar is a newer model but was never in full production and has only been photographed and played for the video demo. It is a one off prototype that sounds, looks, and plays amazingly. Guitar comes with brand new tweed looking Danelectro vinyl gig bag.
