If you do a quick Youtube search for “Jimmy Page Danelectro”, you come across videos showing The Lord of The Riffs strumming, beating and lovingly pummeling his black Danelectro 59DC.The D59M-NOS is Danelectro’s new take on the 59DC from days gone by. This reissue retains much of the mojo from the old, but adds some important updates such as an adjustable truss rod and a Badass-style wraparound recessed bridge. There will be a finite number of these available, since “under the hood” are a pair of 15-year-old vintage Danelectro Lipstick pickups, found after 15 years of being abandoned in a warehouse.The Korean-built D59M-NOS has a slender C-shape neck, 1-5/8″ nut and 25″ scale length. The 12″ radius rosewood fretboard is topped with 21 carefully dressed medium-jumbo frets and even has an original style aluminum nut. The D59’s 15-year-old Lipstick pickups ring with a clear and articulate voice and offer surprisingly robust output. Auditioning it through a mid-70s Princeton Reverb was a joy, especially as the amp eased into low volume breakup. This guitar responds well with a little dirt, cutting through a busy mix with ease. Fans of multiple gain stage rectifier stacks may want to rethink their signal chain.True to Nate Daniels’ original design, the separate volume and tone pots feature a concentric configuration, thus taking up less pickguard real estate. The pickups are height-adjustable via screws through the guitar’s back and the iconic “Coke Bottle” headstock remain. The upgraded “Badass” style bridge solves the intonation inaccuracies of the original design and offers up a bit more top end to the guitar’s tone.
