Vintage Danelectro 4011 – RARE – 1964 – Black & White with Stock Trem Assembly Included
This Vintage Danelectro smacks of vibe and has a fantastic tone. We did quite a bit of digging to identify it as properly as possible. This instrument features the headstock seen in 1966 on the slimline 12 String and the Bellzouki models. It’s a Danelectro 4011 dated to 1964 via the Potentiometer Codes (see images). The guitar has some good wear on it, scratches and dings befitting a vintage instrument of this nature. The Original Factory Tremolo is included with the guitar (see images). The previous owner upgraded to a string through height adjustable bridge. The Frets have some solid wear but play fine. The guitar does NOT have an adjustable truss rod, but the rear body “neck angle adjustment” just below the neck heel works perfectly. Some minor tweaks to the neck and bridge yielded a medium high action perfect for open tunings or slide playing. When we set the action too low we got fret buzzing and “dead” frets above the 12th fret on the B and E strings, so the guitar has been left in this medium / high action setting for the sake of playabilitiy. Freshly Set up with D’Addario .10-.46 – Ships in Coffin Case. Previously owned by Michael Wilton of Queensryche.
