Danelectro Announce Three New Models for Summer

Danelectro Announce Three New Models for Summer -

Perennial guitar favourites Danelectro are back with three fantastic new models, and one eye-catching new paint job, or summer 2013.

'67 Heaven

This gloriously offset design first appeared as the Danelectro Hawk way back in 1967. Now it returns as the '67 Heaven, which combines the original's classic body style with a great neck feel and buckets of fabulous tones. With souped up Lipstick pickups, an adjustable bridge and a funky Alligator finish - choose from Red, Orange, Blue or Creme (all £449 UK RRP), or a more traditional Gloss Black hue (at £399 UK RRP) - the '67 Heaven is a real statement of stylish intent.
