Danelectro ’59DC Short Scale Bass Guitar in Vintage Cream (used)



Since its introduction in the earliest days of rock ‘n’ roll, the Danelectro DC Bass has inspired bassists to push their playing limits. And now, the ’59DC is available in an ultra-comfortable short-scale format.




This bass sports Dano’s iconic Shorthorn double-cut body shape and a pair of high-output Lipstick pickups. Plugging in yields a punchy low end with plenty of harmonics. You won’t have to worry about playing comfort, either! The 29.75-inch scale length is easy on your hands, making it an excellent option for guitar and bass players alike. Its lightweight hardboard/plywood body is comfortable, whether playing standing or seated, and its fast maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard provide smooth playability. At the same time, a fully adjustable bridge lets you set your intonation to your liking.
