Danelectro Releases Brand New '66T and '59X Guitars for Summer NAMM

With the Summer NAMM show kicking off in Nashville later this week, some brands have already started teasing and announcing brand-new products that attendees can expect to see on the show floor. Yesterday, Danelectro joined that list, with the release of the new ‘66T and ‘59X guitars.

The ‘66T is a semi-hollowbody guitar, outfitted with a Wilkinson vibrato, a vintage-style single-coil pickup in the neck position, and a twin lipstick humbucker in the bridge position. The humbucker is coil-splittable, via push/pull control.

Players can pick up the ‘66T for $749 USD in four finishes—Transparent Orange, Transparent Blue, Gloss Black, or 3 Tone Sunburst—or grab an identical baritone version of the model, called the ‘66BT Baritone, for $799 USD.

Danelectro’s brand new solidbody ‘59X, meanwhile, iterates on the brand’s iconic ‘59 model with the addition of an offset, high-output, humbucker-sized, single-coil neck pickup, which can be split via push/pull tone control. In the bridge position, the ‘59X features a lipstick humbucker. Players looking for a tremolo can also opt to pick up the ‘59XT, which features one built in.
