Danelectro has introduced a new Ice Grey finish for two of its electric guitar models, the six-string ‘64XT and the 12-string ‘59X12. Completing the “all-over” finish on both instruments is a matching headstock, and a contrasting Black Marble pickguard.

Danelectro’s ‘64XT is described by the brand as a “modern and authentic adaptation” of the reversed double-cutaway guitar shape popularised in the ‘60s – as found in models such as the Mosrite Ventures Model and Univox Hi-Flier.

It sports contemporary appointments such as a precision-cut graphite nut and a Wilkinson vibrato bridge system for increased tuning stability. The guitar has a chambered fibrewood body, and a C-shaped maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard. For pickups, the ‘64XT comes with a combination of a lipstick bridge humbucker and a vintage-style single-coil in the neck. These can be adjusted with a master volume and push-pull tone knob that acts as a coil-split for the bridge humbucker.

Meanwhile, the ‘59X12 is a 12-string masonite electric with a semi-hollow body construction, a bolt-on maple neck, pau ferro fingerboard and 21 medium-jumbo frets. The guitar employs a combination of a Danelectro’s Lipstick humbucker in the bridge and a vintage-style single-coil with large housing in the neck position. For tone sculpting, there’s a master volume, push-pull tone knob for coil splitting the bridge, and a three-way pickup selector.
