Meet the Dano-Master

Post by Nico » Sun Aug 14, 2022 8:53 am

Couldn't pass this one up in a trade. Came with the bent Dano bridge.

Just sharing what I did with spare parts I had. Also simplified the electronics with volume and tone instead of the stacked controls.

Thanks, it rings like a bell with that bridge and trem... just wish the pickups were stronger. Might upgrade them.

Nice mods!
I also got rid of stacked controls in my guitarlin..
About the weakness in the pickups, Are they wired series or parallel?

If there parallel you may be happier wiring to series for a fatter sound.
Ive swapped toggle for a 4 way rotary switch on mine.. With a rotary you could have the option of both.
I went with..
N - NB Parallel - B - NB Parallel "out of phase"

Nice Dano!

I wired it like a tele, i guess, so series?

Anyways, it's all good, I'll just jack up that bridge a little bit more but overall, i'm happy with the tone.

It not sustains like crazy and can be well intonated. It feels and sounds better than my higher end guitars. 90's Danos are just amazing instruments and a great platform to experiment with mods.

Arent danos usually wired in series. "some one chirp up if im getting mixed up"

If so, youl be getting a brighter sound than with your original wiring.
Think teles are wired parallel..
Wired my dano in parallel as its converted to sitar and wanted a brighter sound.
Iv got a diagram for a 4 way rotary.
N - NB Parallel - B - NB series if you decide to take that rout.
