Danelectro has revealed details of its new short-scale bass guitar model, the '59DC – the company reckons it's a "halfway house" between an electric guitar and a full-scale bass.
Available in Black Metalflake, Copper and Vintage Cream finishes, the '59DC's chief features include that 29.75" scale length; a semi-hollow, double-cutaway shorthorn body shape; and Danelectro's own high-output Alnico Lipstick pickups – which can be controlled via its single volume and tone controls and three-way selector switch.
The model also features a C-shaped neck profile with a bolt-on design, and a 24-fret fingerboard.
The bass also boasts milestone visual touches that celebrate the company's legacy, including its 'coke-bottle' headstock and seal-shaped scratchplate.
Modern additions include vintage-style smooth-geared tuners, a precision-cut aluminum nut and a fully adjustable bridge.
The '59DC is available soon for $539. For more information, head to Danelectro.
