They've always looked cheapo to me, but you run into respectable players using them now and then. Are they great guitars built to look kind of futuristic retro punk? I think they go back almost all the way to the beginnings of rock and roll but maybe today's company is the same in name only. What do you know, think you know, or opine about Danelectro guitars? Oh,...and their accessories, too (which are very dodgy-looking, just like their guitars)?
