Danelectro Convertible Model 5015 Model Thinline Hollow Body Electric Guitar (1962), made in Neptune, NJ, formica finish, masonite and pine body, poplar neck with Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.

The classic 1960's roundhole hollow body Danelectro with single lipstick tube pickup in the round soundhole, formica top and back finish, and pebble grained vinyl siding. Intended to be used with or without a pickup (hence the name), the Convertible guitars have more acoustic response than any other Nathan Daniel design. These were the most basic Danelectro offered (original price $65.00) but have proved enduringly popular with a unique tone all their own, both plugged and unplugged. Recently the renowned singer/songwriter J.J. Cale has been seen using a Convertible extensively, inspiring new interest in this unusual Danelectro creation.
