The company specialized in making electric guitars and basses based on Danelectro's designs from the 1950s and 1960s. They also made some more unusual instruments, like six string basses, baritone guitars, sitar guitars, the shorty octave 12-string and the guitarlin, which is a cross between a guitar and a mandolin.
Many of the company's instrument designs borrowed heavily from the early designs.
In Spring 2011, Jerry Jones announced that he was retiring and closing the factory. By May, the manufacturing equipment was sold.
