What We Say

12 string electric are glorious things but it's often a speciality instrument and there's always been something of a dearth of affordable 12 string electrics that are well made enough to play nicely and stand up to the rigours of regular gigging. Enter the Danelectro DC-12! These are simply fantastic at any money - they play beautifully with a nice balance of plenty of space for your fingers (looking at you here, Rickenbacker!) without feeling too much like a tree trunk, and those lipstick pickups are perfectly suited to 12 string jangle: whether it's the Byrds, Johnny Marr or Peter Buck you're aiming for, the Dano gets you into the ballpark for a very good price.

A Danelectro legend, the delicious doublecut '59 Dano now looks cooler than ever, with glossless finish paintwork, matt finish hardware and tinted scratchplate and edge tape lacquer all adding to the retro vibe.
