Electric Guitar – 1969 Coral Danelectro Firefly Model F2N6 Hollow Body Electric Guitar1,700.00
1969 Coral Danelectro Firefly Model F2N6 Hollow Body Electric Guitar I have to quite collecting Danelectro Guitars. They are multiplying so much I have to start listing them. I got this beautiful all original 1969 Coral Firefly in a trade and its time to share it . These guitars were made by Danelectro just as the company was ending. They were made from 1967 to 1969. I am dating this one as a 1969 with only the Tailpiece to speak to its age. The earlier models didn’t have the adjustable tailpiece so that’s all I have. This guitar never had a Pickguard installed on it. Most that I have seen have a clear Pickguard with the Coral Logo on it. It has the original Kluson Double Line tuners and the awesome Danelectro Lipstick Style Pickups. They sound great on this guitar. They were used on all Danelectro’s and this set is no exception to sounding great! The Double Cutaway Hollow Body has a Spruce Top which is fully bound with original 5 plys bindings. The back and sides are English Maple which looks great. The nut is also pretty interesting. They used a material called Oilite Bronze to make them. Oilite is a self lubricating bronze that has a high temperature lubricant impregnated into it. They only used this material for the Firefly’s as far as my information goes. It looks cool and its all original. Jeff the Tech set this one up with awesome playing low action. It’s a pleasure to play. Original knobs and the frets have little wear. Check the pics. Coral didn’t have an original case as far as I can see in my research so I do not have an original case with it. I do have a cool looking newer gigbag that protects it well and comes with the guitar. A very cool Danelectro Guitar that plays and sounds great. Hate to sell it but it could be yours. Just hit the PayPal button.
Original Everything Newer Gigbag that looks cool
