Danelectro 3022 DC2 Thinline Electric Bronze, 1959

Danelectro 3022 DC2 Thinline Electric Bronze, 1959

In the mid 1950’s, interest in the electric guitar rapidly increased and guitars like the Danelectro 3022 DC2 were built to satisfy the demand. Designed to be inexpensive to produce and buy, tens of thousands of these and related guitars were built for sale through department stores like Sears (under the Silvertone brand), some in the $70 price range. While countless players started with guitars like this, most played for their own satisfaction but some went on to spectacular fame.

❌SOLD❌ Jerry Jones Neptune Shorthorn Bass 4 Copper, 2006

The Jerry Jones Neptune Shorthorn Bass 4 draws from a classic American design by Danelectro, and was built in Nashville from 1981 to 2011. At that point, Jones retired and liquidated his shop. Danelectro was operated from 1946 to 1969 by Nathan Daniel and from 1966 to its close was owned by the MCA record company. Specializing in mass produced, low cost but decent quality instruments and amplifiers, Danelectos were largely available through catalog stores like Sears & Roebuck and Montgomery Ward but often under other names including the Sears brand Silvertone.

❌SOLD❌  Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 Black *No Longer Available*

The Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 recreates a classic 12. Originally successful in its orientation as a decent budget instrument, these new models at least as good. Based closely on the original double cutaway ‘Shorthorn’ two pickup models, the new Danelectro 59 12 String D5912 features the same ‘Masonite’ and hardwood body construction with a Maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard.

❌SOLD❌  Jerry Jones Neptune 12 String Electric Red, 2008

The Jerry Jones Neptune 12 is now a fairly unusual guitar, based on vintage Danelectro designs, and was one of the best affordable electric 12’s available before Jones closed in 2011. The plant had run since 1981 and in April 2011, Jerry Jones retired and the entire contents of the plant were sold at auction. Danelectro instruments and amplifiers were built from 1946 to 1969, guitars under that name from 1954 and had an unusual construction scheme.
