Preeb's recent Les Paul build - which should win some kind of web award :grin: - got me itchin' to try something like it, but as my skills are nearly non-existent, I thought I'd try something a bit more approachable for a first "from scratch" build, AND that will be unique enough for me to justify the time, as well as not being too expensive. So, I've always wanted a Dano-style 12-string, and I'm investigating design, parts, etc. right now; not a clone per se, but a sound-alike replica inspired by a Danelectro. The main thing for me on this guitar would be learning to make a neck, as I don't want to use a pre-made one. The Dano body type, I'd think, shouldn't be too difficult to pull off, allowing me to concentrate on neck-based skill development. Has anyone here ever built anything like a Danelectro, or have any particular insight into their construction other than what is commonly known? Here's a particularly lovely example of how nice these guitars can sound; not sure when Howe recorded this. . .
