The Danelectro Longhorn Bass captures this vibe for you in spades. Built firmly in the vintage design of the older Danos, the Longhorn Bass gives you the thumpy, round tone you'd expect from a vintage-style, 29.75" scale bass.
A sound every bass player needs

It has enough punch to make slappers happy and to cut through at a rock gig. A pair of high-output Lipstick pickups deliver fat vintage tone on command. And a pair of stacked volume/tone pots let you sculpt your tone to perfection. Take it from bassists the Danelectro Longhorn Bass has all the sounds you need.
Construction updates for modern reliability
Like a great many vintage bass designs, older Danos can sometimes fall victim to reliability issues.
