I wanted a lightweight, cheap guitar that my (two year-old) son, Gus, could get his hands around as he got older. I jumped the gun on buying a minivan too.
Danos are great, cheap guitars, and the 90’s reissues are too. This one had been improved by a set of Gotohs before I got it. I should probably have left it set up with 10s for Gus, but I put on GHS burnished nickel 11s. Chime. Most of the sounds on the 7(!)-way selector are great, but the blow switch is well named.
