New Toys

$_57dano rumor bassThese are a couple of Danelectro basses recently imported from the US. Left, is a Hodad with three lipstick tube pick-ups and a state-of-the-art “Selectomatic” tone switch. The other, is the Rumor Bass (also known as the Danoblaster) which has a built-in chorus effect. Both are long-scale and, as they are made from plywood and Masonite, are pretty lightweight. Both have that Mosrite body shape and a sparkle finish, too – very “surf”. I’ll be doing YouTube clips with them in the near future.
