THE DANELECTRO STORY…GUITAR WEIRDNESS AT A PRICE by JIM WASHBURN and STEVE SOEST
HOW INNOVATIVE ELECTRONICS AND QUALITY-AT-A BUDGET PRODUCED A LINE OF AXES COLLECTORS GO GA-GA OVER TODAY.
A gangly, young Jimi Hendrix strikes a rock star pose on his front lawn with his first electric guitar. ln a London studio John Entwistle records a bass solo on the Who’s “My Generation” that explodes in a twanging bluster.
