This classic shorthorn hollowbody captures the vintage look, feel, and tone of the early days of rock-n-roll. The '59 DC NOS+ is constructed from a spruce body with hardboard for the top and back that is lightweight and delivers a signature midrange tone. In addition, a maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard offers wonderful playability and response. And when you plug in, a pair of lipstick singlecoil passive pickups brings that vintage tone.

When it first appeared in '59, the DC shorthorn line was meant to replace the popular U2 series with a more streamlined body design. While the DC introduced a new look, it still came with the U2's twin lipstick pickups, retaining that one-of-a-kind tone that captured the imagination of so many guitarists at the time. With its coil wrapped around an Alnico VI magnet and then wrapped in tape, these pickups harken back to the vintage tone of rock's earliest days. The result is a tone that truly stands alone — jangly, midrange punch and treble kick. And with a 3-way pickup selector, bridge and neck volume and tone controls, you will have lots of options for dialing in your tone. Along with a smooth, responsive, bolt-on maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard, the '59 DC NOS+ features a wraparound adjustable bridge, so you can set your intonation to your liking.
