Get ready to break out the lava lamps, the Danelectro Coral Electric Sitar is back!

A reissue of the iconic Danelectro/Coral 3S19 Electric Sitar of the late '60s, the new Dano reissue faithfully replicates the sound and feel of the original. Played just like a standard electric guitar, the additional 13 sympathetic drone strings (with their own pickup and controls) combined with the Vincent Bell designed "buzz bridge" produce the unmistakable mystical Eastern sound of an Indian sitar.

If you're going for the sound that George Harrison got on "Norwegian Wood" or Brian Jones got on "Paint It Black", this is it! You've also heard Electric Sitars used by The Animals, The Yardbirds, The Kinks, prog legends like Yes and Genesis and more recent artists like Steve Vai and Metallica.
