DANELECTRO 67 GUITAR - RED
The most important sonic enhancement comes via the '67 Heaven Hawk's lipstick pickups, which have a hotter output than their 60s predecessors. Elsewhere, the original's 18 frets have been replaced by a more electric-friendly 21, while a modern six-saddle intonatable bridge occupies the place where the old- style metal tailpiece would have been. Returning are the original's fiddly dual concentric volume and tone controls, and the surprisingly conventional headstock.
Unlike most other guitars, the Hawk's semi-solid body isn't made from solid woods or laminates but is instead a wooden frame topped, front and back, with Masonite (aka hardboard). Not only does this make the Hawk easy on the back, but it combines with the Les Paul-like 629mm (24.75-inch) scale and those lipstick pickups for a glassy, resonant tone you can't get from solid guitars. While it was originally done to cut costs, the Masonite build has become an iconic feature of the Dano brand.
