Im gona buy a dano guitar(and make the biggest mistake one can do when buying a guitar, not try it out, its a long way from north sweden to germany just to try a €222 guitar ) but i cant realy make up my mind about witch to buy.

Here is the contenders:

Dano Pro in tangerine(yes that is the color im looking at)

http://www.thomann.de/se/danelectro_de_59_dano_black.htm
Dano 59 in black

the 59 is probably more playable, but ther is something about the pro that i like. so chose your poison, witch of them do you like?

(dont want recomendations about other guitars in that pricerange its a dano i want!!)

I think you'd have to play a Pro first to find out if its shape is comfortable for you.

Since you aren't able to do that, go buy a 59

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.

the pro looks horrible to me, not only due to the fact it would have terrible upper fret access. I have a '59 twelve string and it's a brilliant guitar, i've played the older reissue of the '59 with 3 pickups which was also very nice.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

The Pro looks so uncomfortable, so incredibly hideous, it's made of plywood, it's offensively ugly, yet it's unbelievably cool.

If you can try it out and you like it, definitely go for the Pro.

The Pro is so damn attractive I'm considering buying one myself. A shame they don't have 'em in red up here in Europe.

To clear things out, they're semihollow with a plywood frame and masonite top and back.

You do seem to have a thing for tasteless, obnoxious, yet cool guitars.

That's o.k.

Personally I like bright coloured '80's guitars and fake, painted on, F-holes.
