This sparkly blue box of happiness showed up on my doorstep today. I can't help but smile just looking at it! These 60th Anniversary 59 DC's boast NOS+ Lipstick pickups, stacked volume and tone controls and a 3-way pickup selector. They're light, tight and have a unique tone thanks to those pickups and construction. The 59M DC is built in Korea and "every guitar set up in USA". Value for money? Hell yes! Fun? Double yes!
For this video I decided to let the guitar do the talking by creating an improvised loop with a Fender Super model in the Axe-FX III. I threw in some octave fuzz and other stuff just for fun.
