Danelectro 58 longhorn bass – copper burst


Danelectro's longhorn bass is a cult classic that's been turning heads for half a century. The semi-hollow construction and short scale make this an extremely comfortable instrument to handle and play, lightweight and on the smaller side for a bass guitar.


The short scale, slender neck and deep cutaways make this a very easy bass to play, and soundwise it's surprisingly versatile – with flatwound strings you can conjure up a very convincing double-bass impersonation, put roundwounds on it and it's a great bass for anything from retro rock to twangy punky agression.
