The Danelectro

Gary chose a guitar from his personal stash for me to borrow. I specifically asked for a loaner with little or no value so that I wouldn’t worry about messing it up. A few weeks ago I nearly ruined my son Eli’s Black Beauty by plugging it into the wrong hole in the amp. I use words like hole instead of input jack, a term I learned two minutes ago when I googled amplifier and hole and cable. I know nothing about gear. Gary’s Danelectro is a starter guitar from the ’80s, and it sounds like a cross between an acoustic and an electric. It’s creamy and lightweight and completely boss. Gary says it looks right on me. I guess that matters. It feels great. That definitely matters. I’d never heard of Danelectro before becoming the proud temporary owner of one, but it turns out some cool people play(ed) them.
