2005 Danelectro 56-U2 Pro Reissue Electric Guitar Malt Shop White Creme w/ gigbag

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Up for sale, a 2005 Danelectro 56-U2 Pro in near mint condition and in perfect working order. This limited reissue was one of 3000 Danos produced in '05 and benefits from the attention to detail and quality construction for which the Korean-made Danelectros are known. Featuring a pair of lipstick pickups with aged alnico magnets, the tone is jangly and spanky, with sweet low end and percussive cut. This "Pro" is from the second generation of Dano reissues, and as such is a gigworthy version with a few key upgrades and cosmetic tweaks. These include no vinyl on the sides of the body, metal strap buttons, a simple Volume/Tone control layout, six saddle adjustable bridge, and slightly hotter pickups. The guitar weighs in at a mere 7lbs. Professionally setup by Mike Lull Guitar Works, this Dano benefits from a full Plek setup and is strung with 10-46 strings.

The maple neck has a smooth gloss black finish on the profile, with a round and fairly chunky C shape that fills the palm comfortably. The slab rosewood fretboard boasts medium jumbo frets which have perfect crowns and play cleanly up the neck. The neck is arrow straight, and a truss rod access route has been added by Mike Lull Guitar Works at the heel of the neck. The gloss black headstock has a modified "coke bottle" shape, with vertical Danelectro logo and individual chrome tuning machines that turn smoothly and hold pitch as they should.

The simple electronics all work well, with Master Volume and Tone controls coupled to a three-way pickup selector toggle switch. The metal hardware shines like new, and the black "cupcake" knobs are minty as well. Cosmetically, the guitar is near mint, with only a couple extremely faint finish scratches in the clear coat of the Malt Shop Creme finish.

A padded gigbag is included.
