The ‘59M NOS+ is indeed, Danelectro’s take on the double cutaway ‘59 from days gone by, whilst retaining all the character and charm of the original, now it's loaded with tone-enhanced, NOS+ (New Old Stock) lipstick pickups that deliver notably enhanced highs, punchier mids, and solid lows.
While the ‘59M NOS+ sings with even more classic Dano single coil jangle, twang, clarity and fast attack, the key ‘59’ elements remain, within the timeless short horn, double cutaway body, Coke-bottle headstock, dual-concentric volume and tone controls and 3-way selector switch.
Accurate tuning and pin-point intonation is ensured with straight string pull from 3-aside vintage style machine heads, via a precision cut aluminum nut, onward to the fully adjustable die cast wrap-around bridge, recessed within the body.
It goes without saying, Danelectro guitars almost play themselves and the ‘59M NOS+, with a comfortable, sleek neck profile and 21 fret polished fingerboard, is no exception. Featuring the original lightweight Masonite construction, impressing the audience with these new striking visuals and enriched sonics during a 2hour show….is not a problem.
Danelectro’s design team have certainly excelled with these gorgeous, large-flaked attention grabbing, metalflake body finishes with color-matched headstocks, offset with the original white ‘seal’ shaped designed scratchplate. With the addition of these unique NOS+ lipstick pickups, the ‘59M NOS+ is arguably one of the best sounding incarnations of the definitive Danelectro model.
Little did Nathan Daniel know when he started to produce electric guitars in the early 1950’s, just how many bona fide Rock Gods would owe their career move to Danelectro guitars, one of the few guitar brands that can truly be described as legendary, classic, iconic, retro, cool, hip and trendy.
