Back in ’63… gas cost 26 cents a gallon… a new group called the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan show…and an odd-looking electric guitar burst onto the pages of the Sears catalog.

Danelectro’s “model 1449” would soon become the rage of garage bands and pros alike. Why? One reason was tone. Danelectro’s pickups, ingeniously housed in lipstick tubes, quickly became known for their “signature twang”. The guitar bodies were lightweight and featured a hollow inner chamber which made them sonically “alive”… unlike traditional solid bodies.

Fast forward forty-five years…Danelectro re-issues this prized guitar…calling it the “Dano 63”. Our first task in bringing back this great guitar was to replicate the 60’s era Lipstick pickups. That meant acquiring dozens of old Lipsticks and tearing them apart to uncover their “secrets”. The resulting reissue pickups are hot and sweet and sonically accurate to the originals.

Next we upgraded the tuners and bridges to make this guitar as fun to play as it is to listen to. And to make it just as fun to look at, we combed old paint archives for just the right “retro” colors to capture the soul and spirit of this great guitar. We then plated all the hardware with “zero gloss” nickel.

And to be faithful to the Danelectro legacy, it is priced to be just as affordable as its 45 year old cousin. We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed producing it.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
