Danelectro Bellzouki in NJ for $1300

I know, I know... $1300. Pricey. I don't expect my readers to run out and buy this guitar but I did want to highlight it because these are as rare as hen's teeth. This one has had the same owner since 1966 - quite a find.

A very rare original 1965 Danelectro Vincent Bell 'Bellzouki' model 7020 guitar. It’s in 100% original playable condition. All hardware is rust free. The painted finish has normal age checking for a 45 year old instrument, the headstock has a couple of minor worn off paint areas. Volume/tone knobs are very clean, no noise. I purchased it in 1966 along with the hard shell case (I don’t believe the case was made by Danelectro) The case’s interior deep blue plush is in very good condition, the exterior has a bit of road wear. The case is included in this sale.
It plays and sounds great. A nice combination of lipstick tube pickups and 12 strings.

The manufactured date in control cavity has the code # 115, which I believe means the first week of January 1965 (see close-up photo)

  1. Sorry My bad I went and looked at it and mine is a 7021 with the sitar body and two pick ups. The pick guard is white shimmer.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
