I should have mentioned that my Dano neck is Korean reissue. As for vintage Danelectro, I’d be more surprised by a variety of scale lengths than by shared scale lengths.

They probably have one gang saw for all their scale lengths like Fender did decades ago. It just makes sense.
Yeah, at Danelectro, efficiency ruled!

That’s .25 shorter scale than my Dano baritone neck! :D
My favorite bass was always the Vox Clubman (and the Teisco ripoff) followed by the Hofner. One is 30.1" and the other 30.5" (both likely metric) but I have always built a 30"and a 27" baritone until recently. Built a 34" bass for a customer and a 27" bass for me. The 27" through a compressor I accidentally left inline sounds plenty long enough and was easier to play :lol:

Did you type " C0ck"? LOL it got censored...LOL.
Yeppers lol, I never even considered censorship on THAT word :lol:

During the guitar boom years this stuff just flew out the door of Kay, Harmony, Supro, and Dano I bet.

Here's a hunk of the built in drawer front. I removed the two #12 flathead screws that were in it.

Thanks for watching. I've had a few original Danos and Silvertones over the years myself.
