Step back into the psychedelic era with the Danelectro Sitar, a reimagined masterpiece that resonates with the groovy vibes of the 1960s. This exceptional instrument brings the distinctive and ethereal sounds of the sitar, traditionally heard in classical Indian music, into the realm of rock and pop, allowing you to add an exotic twist to your music.

Inspired by the groundbreaking Coral Sitar, this model retains its vintage allure while incorporating modern craftsmanship. The full-hollow body, combined with a composite/plywood construction, provides a light, resonant quality that enhances its mystical tones. The unique Gotoh Sitar bridge, paired with the innovative design of the Lipstick® pickups, captures both the jangly buzz of the sitar strings and the warmth of a traditional electric guitar, making it an ideal choice for experimental musicians and traditionalists alike.

Artists like George Harrison of The Beatles famously infused sitar sounds into Western music, elevating the instrument to iconic status during the psychedelic music era. The Danelectro Sitar follows in these legendary footsteps, offering a piece of musical history updated for contemporary playability and reliability.

Whether you're looking to explore the boundaries of your sound or simply infuse some nostalgic tones into your compositions, the Danelectro Sitar stands out as a musical companion that is as visually striking as it is sonically inspiring.
