A really cool and RARE, 1960 Danelectro Deluxe Model 6028 Guitar.. These guitars were made from 1955 to 1966...No telling which year this one is...Its one of those years and we were told it was a 1960. We'll go with that...This one has the awesome Danelectro Lipstick Pickups, Masonite body and it sounds great... I got all my info from the awesome Danelectro Book. See pic 18.
As you can see, it had some issues with the neck. No breaks, thank goodness, but when it arrived, the neck was not pro painted black. YUCK!! I personally got all the black paint off and revealed the original white finish, whats left of it, and got it all cleaned up. There was some sparkles on the headstock. Not sure where they came from, but I left them alone. It looks pretty cool like that! The original Danelectro sticker above the aluminum nut is still there. See pic 6.
Its all original including the case. We will discuss that later. All pickups, pots, wiring, pickups, bridge, tuners and pickguard are original. There had been some work done on the wiring at some point. See pic 15. The foil package had been opened and taped shut. Given everything worked great, we left it alone.
I had Jeff the Tech check this one out and set it up with new strings. It plays great with awesome action. I have it set as low as she will go and has plenty of room to raise it. The original aluminum nut measures 1 5/8 inches. It has a 25 inch scale neck. 21 frets and it plays and sounds great!
The original Wood Grain Masonite shows some wear..yes, I said Masonite. For those that don't know about these guitars, they are made of Masonite on the front and back and have a wood frame inside. Very unique and they sound unique as well. Very cool sound...
For as much play that is on this cool guitar, the fabric side binding is in beautiful shape. The Kluson 3x3 Tuners work as they should and it has the correct hexagonal Tuner grommets as well.
Check out that case. I was so happy to have the case with this cool guitar. I have about 10 Danelectros in my private stock and was tempted to keep this case. It comes with this cool guitar. All latches, hinges and original handle are with it. It has wear on the interior as expected but even the accessory box is still here. Great vintage case for this awesome guitar.
Sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used but note that I have been hand-picking vintage guitars for my customers for over 20 years now. All have loved them and this one will not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars and basses.
