Danelectro Mod 7 seven string #2 (c2000)

(courtesy of
Thrill to the sound of our 60's "tone-a-delic" guitar.
The Mod combines the best of both worlds...
The drive and power of a humbucker with the sweetness and richness of two Lipsticks.
Exclusive Select-O-Matic switching plus coil tap switch provides eleven distinct tone variations.
Gotoh tuners and adjustable bridge. Like owning eleven monster guitars in one!

The Select-O-Matic pickup selector has six positions:
1-Neck/Bridge, 2-Neck, 3-Neck/Middle, 4-middle, 5-Middle/Bridge, 6-Bridge
The Blow Switch:
Bypasses the rotary switch and turns all 3 pickups on at once in series which gives the DC-3 a 7th setting above and beyond the Select-O-Matic switch for a no holds barred blast of tone! Thus, when the "Blow Switch" is clicked on, the Dano is significantly louder than with any one or two pickup combinations. This makes playing leads an easier chore as the guitar is automatically louder when the Blow Switch is engaged and automatically goes back to the settings you had previously on the guitar when you flip it back to the original position.

CONDITION: This is the second of two Dano Mod 7s, with very few surface marks and scratches in finish consistent with limited play time, and likewise only the slightest of fading of hardware. Occasionally used as studio guitar:
- Usual Dano characteristic of slight edge tape lifting on tight concave bend on cutaway - I have never had a Dano that hasn't done this (in fact even when brand new). I - always just leave it.
- No visible buckle/button scratches. No deep worming or serious buckle gouging.


Overall this you see a very rare and rather special guitar in very good condition indeed for its 17 years! I doubt you will find a better example - which is why I bought it in the first place.

  • RATING: B+ (very good overall condition for seventeen year old guitar)
  • PRICE: £440 (with soft case)
