Probably the most iconic and recognisable bass of all time – it’s been played by four-string luminaries such as The Who’s John Entwistle – and certainly one of the most quirky, the Danelectro Longhorn Bass is back in reissue form for 2012.
With its hugely exaggerated double cutaway (which makes upper fret access super easy), masonite body and its classic Dano lipstick pickups, the Longhorn is the perfect rhythm machine forrock, punk, jazz, country, and more, all while making you stand out on stage.
Available in a beautifully retro-looking copperburst finish with contrasting chrome and cream binding fora mere £399 UK RRP, the Longhorn is a sure-fire way to inject some cool character into your playing!
Danelectro is distributed exclusively in the UK and Eire by John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. For more information, visit the JHS website.
