Overview

Brand name: 

Product: 

  • electric guitars

The semi-solid Daion 555 Headhunter was loosely based on the Gibson ES-335, but had a cutaway on the bottom of the body. The body had a solid central block of maple and spruce laminate but with grooves cut into each end to increase resonance.

Pickups were two humbuckers with a coil split function for each. Hardware was goldplated, the fixed bridge had through-body stringing, a first for semi-hollow guitars. Finish options were: gold, brown, burgundy, honey sunburst and tobacco sunburst.

2012950 USDgoodPaid $950, all original parts, but no original case. It needed a refret and setup, so it was about $1300 to get it playable. It's great now, so I still consider it well bought.
