Used Danelectro 56-U3 1999 Black Sparkle
Stand out from the crowd with the Black Sparkle Danelectro 56-U3! With its three single-coil lipstick pickups, this tone machine brings all the twang and jangle that you could ever need! The unique rotary pickup selector allows for every possible pickup combination for an enhanced tonal palette. If the six pickup settings aren't cutting it for you, flip the switch to engage all three pickups in series! Perfect for Blues, Country, Rockabilly, or good ol' fashioned down-and-dirty Rock 'n' Roll!
Overall the guitar is in quite good shape. The clear pickguard has been removed, presumably to enhance the sparkle effect. The tape binding does have some scuffs and is a little dirty around the neck joint/strap button. The metal nut and hardware has some slight oxidization as well. The rosewood fretboard is also starting to exhibit some wear, but a liberal lemon oiling or two would probably help get rid of that. All articles of wear are pretty standard for a nearly 25 year-old instrument. The frets are in good shape, the electronics work perfectly, the neck feels great, and it sounds stellar!
