Here we have a beautiful and rare vintage Danelectro DC-3 Deluxe Model #6037 electric guitar.  Beautiful Dark Walnut finish.  Made in NJ, USA. The DC-3 has three single coil lipstick pickups. Individual on/off and volume for each pickup with a master volume for all three.  The guitar is in excellent condition and is all original.  Pickups, electronics, tuners etc. all original.  It has Kluson single line tuning machines. The guitar has been setup with 10’s and is playing great.  The frets are original and in very good condition. Minimal wear and plays amazingly well.  We plugged this guitar into an amp and were blown away at the sound.  With the three pickups and controls, you really can dial in so many tones.  There are no electronics issues whatsoever.   Cosmetically, the guitar is very clean.  There is typical wear from being 63 years old.  There are no cracks, breaks, or structural repairs.  The tape around the body is excellent.  Most of the marks and wear are on the neck.  You can see from the photos that there is wear on the back side of the neck. There is an indent on the back of the neck around the 3rd fret. You can feel it with your hand but it doesn’t hold you up while playing.  There are paint chips and wear on the headstock as well as where the neck meets the body.  Please see all photos.   The electronics cavity cover is Chrome and in great shape.  The pots still have their copper shielding surround.  There was a piece of masking tape added by us to ensure that it stays closed as the original tape has lost its sticking power. The serial number plate is still in the cavity as well.   Serial number 8030-0  Number on body matches neck and cavity plate. The guitar weighs 6lbs 3 oz.   What’s even cooler is that it comes with its original triangular shaped hard shell case.  It is a cream color with red interior.  The case is in great shape with all latches and hinges working perfectly.  A rare find in itself.  All in all, this Dano DC-3 Deluxe is a rare bird and this one is in excellent condition so grab it while you can!  Thanks for looking and happy buying!
