Is that the same guitar Roine Stolt uses?

the reason they are so cheap is that the body is a plywood frame covered in masonite, and they're made in Korea.

Jimmy page used to use one for slide guitar (for example, on In My Time of Dying)
-that would be one of the originals from the 50s; right now the company is in their 2nd resurrection (they had a series of reissues in the 80s or 90s IIRC).  These new ones - or at least, if you get one of the "Pro" models - are a little higher end than the old ones.  No more wobbly wooden bridge, the pickups are slightly higher output, the tuners are a bit better, etc.

Yeah, I virtually swim in Danelectro guitars in certain instrument stores, and they are pretty cheap, so I was wondering if they're any good.

The Dano is a great blues and classic rock guitar.  It's fairly cheap, but has wonderful tones courtesy of those lipstick pickups.
However, I put some flatwound strings on it, and it's perfect for jazz now - which is what I use it for

This guitar is an absolute piece of shit. Bought it off a friend for 2.50!!! And there was 40p in the case lol. Have no idea why the head has clearly been sawed in half (though he denies it) and it has been painted... yes... painted... But whatever, for 2.50 I basically use it for spare parts and 'experiment' with the electrical stuff without ruining one of my main guitars.

Heh, that Katana bass really looks like you could stab someone to death with it.
