A swirling dervish guitar the likes of which you've never seen before.
This thing is so wild we're hard-pressed to come up with a guitar that has a longer, pointier lower bout than the newly-designed Danelectro Wild Thing. The swirling white pickguard accentuates the body's radical curvature and its contrast with the body finish imparts a distinct yin/yang vibe. Of course Danelectro has long been the instrument of choice for musicians who want to make a bold, distinctive visual statement with its bottle-shaped headstock and lipstick pickups while taking advantage of the Danelectro's easy playability and a price tag that won't cause financial meltdown.
OK, you may be asking: With that extreme bout, what case or gig bag will fit? We suggest the Gator GBE-Extreme-1 Guitar Gig Bag (541689) or the Gator GW-Extreme Guitar Case (545843).

Comments about Danelectro Wild Thing Electric Guitar:
I didn't expect much when I ordered this guitar honestly. I was completely blown away by the great playing neck and the pickups sound great! I wouldn't change a thing on this guitar. I have everything from vintage gibsons and Fenders to modern gibsons, Gretsch's , Fenders, and Epiphones, and this guitar has found a home amongst them. Definitely one of my favorite guitars!
