    I've noticed a lot of turnover on these guitars on TGP.

    There is usually always one for sale.

    Just something I've noticed that does not quite fit with the hyperbolic praise you read about them.

    So. Cal, homie.
    Gopher -- I don't think that reflects on Dan's guitars -- as you'll see by the legion of overjoyed owners/members both here and TGP -- but more their price point. At around $2K they're inexpensive enough to move in a pinch, yet great enough quality so they don't stay for sale very long.

    All the best!

    Problem is, no one will ever say what they really think because it would hurt resale. I wouldn't be surprised if Dan even lets people know they are only hurting themselves by saying anything negative.

    The amount of turn over on these guitars suggests to me that they aren't what everyone says.

    Just don't think that an abundance of "This is the best Tele ever!" posts means very much. Talk, as we know is cheap.

    Action speaks and selling a guitar that is the "Best ever!" suggests it might not be.

    Gopher -- Not sure where the big-time hater vibe towards Dano's is coming from, but given your strong opinions, I suggest you find one and check it out firsthand -- i.e. actually play one. You might find yourself as impressed as all the other Dano lovers out there.

    Regardless, as I said before, at this price point I think you'd have an extremely hard time topping what Dan offers. Cheers!

    Never played a Danocaster but I have a Kirn and they appear for sale here and there and mine is great, no much better than great, awesome fits. I would not say best ever about any guitar because it's like saying "best ever painting or sunrise" very subjective. FWIW. Lots of guitars go for sale, cheap and high priced. Some guys just like to buy and sell I think. I know guys who swap guitars like their socks, constantly. New GAS occurs and something is sold.

    Gopher, your negative vibe is an assumption. You must remember that you are giving an opinion on a business , and you may be affecting someones livelihood......unless you have played one of these guitars and can give an opinion based on experience, you shouldn't be leading ppl to believe that these guitars are not all they are cracked up to be.

    "Problem is, no one will ever say what they really think because it would hurt resale" ...and that could be said for any guitar, mass produced or not.

    There are many reasons to sell a guitar G.A.S. and the desire to try something new being at the top of the list. Implying that because there are one or two of a specific model for sale because they don't measure up is absurd. You could probably find a nice example of just about anything on TGP anytime. I've sold beautiful guitars by Martin, Tom Anderson, Alembic, Gibson, Fender Custom Shop, Schulte, Guild, just to be able to try something else.

    I'm just telling you that a lot of people sell them on The Gear Page after getting them directly without having played them first.

    Some people think that means something, some don't.

    But the fact remains that these guitars get turned over a lot.

    I get there are a lot of reasons people sell guitars.

    Wow. Congratulations. If that guitar plays even half as nice as it looks, it must be killer. The color is fantastic. Enjoy it man.

    Some detail on the parts...is that neck made by USACG? Headstock shape looks like it. Also the saddles, who makes those? Great looking guitar!

    Gorgeous guitar! If she plays half as nicely as she looks, she's a keeper for sure. May you have many happy years together. :D
