Whilst undeniably pretty on the eye, the Danelectro® Blackout ’59M NOS+ oozes rock and roll, retaining the key elements and all the charm of the original model that inspired some of the biggest names in rock and roll, and has since influenced generations of guitar players.
Elements that include the famous short-horn double cutaway semi-hollow body construction, bolt-on maple neck and super smooth 21 fret polished fingerboard allowing for effortless chording, slinky licks and bends.
The Blackout also features Danelectro’s traditional body side tape, this time in black to perfectly match the black seal-shape scratchplate.
Accurate tuning and pin-point intonation is ensured with straight string pull from vintage style machine heads and precision cut aluminum nut, onward to the upgraded fully adjustable die cast wrap-around six saddle bridge, recessed within the body.
