June: 1959 Danelectro Doubleneck #3923
"The 1959 Danelectro Doubleneck 3923 has the standard Shorthorn double-cutaway body with Danelectroуs classic Masonite construction with vinyl binding and a copper-burst finish. The necks are made of poplar and have rosewood fretboards topped with Danoуs рCoke bottleс headstocks. Danelectroуs founder Nat Daniel incorporated some simplistic and efficient designs into the 3923, for instance, the instrumentуs light body construction being able to withstand the extra string tension exerted by the doubleneck, and the stacked volume and tone controls. The standard guitar portion of the instrument has a 24.75"" scale with 21 frets while the 4-string bassу short scale length measures 29.5"" and has 15 frets. The guitar and bass each have their own alnico bar magnet pickup thatуs wrapped in brown vinyl tape and covered with a surplus, chrome-plated lipstick tube."
