Review:
The item itself, I could write a lot of words to describe it and how it's so far from being as basic at the price would lead you to believe - needless to say, there's really nothing you can pinpoint that screams basic or cheaply made about it (and from what I've read, the same can be said for all the reissues from Danelectro).

All I'll add is, all those videos on YouTube that talk about and demo these 12s - they are no exaggeration or the stuff of fanboys, just honest reflections of how good these 59 reissues really are.

I bought it because I wanted a pure 12 string electric to go with my self modified ex-acoustic Washburn that's now electro-acoustic and electric dual channel.

Anyway, back to the Dan

Like any old design, they definitely need to be heard through period amps to really get a feel to what the originals brought to rock sounds, but the single coil pickups (two of them in bridge and neck and paired selectable combinations) and the semi-hollow body create a lovely clean but resonant tone though almost anything you can potentially plug the axe into.

Ten minutes of playing with Guitar Rig alone, with the Dan, pretty much tells you it can do it all - but is definitely a must have for any reproduction of classic 12 electric sounds.

I had to spend a little time tweaking the factory tuning, as it was marginally off in my example, but no issue
