Greetings from the Tweed Hut Music Store, Vacaville Ca. USA! Established 2002, We do a great job and will not let you down!

Classic Dano 12 String Sound and Feel
Its iconic jangle is unmistakable. Sporting the classic Shorthorn hollowbody, “S” soundhole, and a pair of ’56 Vintage Lipstick pickups, the Danelectro Vintage 12 String captures the look, feel, and tone of the early days of rock. The Vintage 12 String is constructed with a lightweight hardboard/plywood body that delivers the jangly signature “Dano” sound. In addition, a maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard offers smooth playability, while a fully adjustable bridge lets you set your intonation to your liking. The Danelectro Vintage 12 String flawlessly re-creates the “Dano” sound heard on countless hit records. You simply must experience it for yourself.

That signature jangle
The two single-coil Lipstick pickups in the Vintage 12 String have a one-of-a-kind tone that captured the imagination of so many guitarists over the last six decades. With their coils wrapped around an Alnico VI magnet and then wrapped in tape, these pickups harken back to the vintage tone of rock’s earliest days. The result is a sound that truly stands alone — jangly, with a punchy midrange and a treble kick. And with a 3-way pickup selector plus volume and tone controls for each pickup, you’ll have a lot of options for dialing in your ideal tone for any track.

An iconic American brand
Founded in 1947, Danelectro produced guitar amps throughout the 1940s before expanding into guitars in the ’50s. With their beloved quirky hollowbody designs, hardboard/plywood construction, and Lipstick pickups, the iconic Danelectro designs are instantly recognizable. Among other innovations, Danelectro introduced the baritone guitar in 1956 and the electric sitar in 1967. From guitar gods Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck to Who bassist John Entwhistle (check out the bass solo on “My Generation”) to country superstar Glen Campbell, Tom Petty lead guitarist Mike Campbell, and the ever-eclectic Wilco guitarist and solo artist Nels Cline, Danos have become staples in the guitar and bass arsenals of top artists in all genres. Now Danelectro is back again and better than ever.
