Description

In the coolest finish, Copper Burst. Jerry Jones built the best Dano reproductions on the market, better than the original 50’s models in fact. While the Korean models offer a good guitar for the money, Jerry Jones made pro quality instruments in his Nashville TN shop. The Neptune Longhorn is based on the Danelectro model from the 50’s and features excellent balance, superb playability, and fantastic tone in a 30″ short-scale. It’s light weight and 30″ scale make it a dream to play during long gigs, and the tone is rich enough that you can use it throughout the night, rather than pulling it out for a few songs. Other features include hollowbody construction, Indian Rosewood fretboard with 1 5/8” nut width, 14.5″ radius, truss rod at the heel, quality Gotoh tuners, 4-way rotary pickup switching with hum-cancelling wiring, Gotoh bridge with adjustable steel saddles and, most notably, Jerry Jones own lipstick tube pickups, widely acclaimed as the best lipsticks on the market. As Jerry once said, “the Neptune has a punchy percussive tone that can really cut through the mix. String this one with flat-wounds and leave your upright at home.” Jerry retired 5 years ago and sold off all of his machinery and parts. Since that time they have continued to appreciate on the used market. This one has some vintage vibe (relic look), especially around the edges, which make it look very close to an original 50’s model. There might be a cleaner one somewhere, but none cooler. Plays great with no fret wear and fairly lively for the Dano body style. Yours for $1150, including a slightly rough hardshell case.
