First-rate Tonewoods Create First-class Tones
Sound is everything with an acoustic guitar, and D’Angelico strives to create the best sounding acoustics on the market. To achieve this goal, D’Angelico uses tonewoods that are a cut above the rest. For example, the Premier Lexington's top is made from solid sitka spruce — a tonewood loved for its nuanced tone and rich harmonics. Next, the top is fitted with scalloped bracing that lets it vibrate much more freely. Finally, the top is mated with the mahogany back and sides to add extra warmth and a subtle midrange boost. You’ll fall in love with the Premier Lexington from the moment you strum your first chord.
Onboard preamp reproduces great plugged-in tone
Musicians who gig regularly require their acoustic be able to plug into their PA without having to be mic’d up. To solve this issue, D’Angelico fitted the Premier Lexington with a D’Angelico with an onboard preamp, tuner, and under-saddle pickup. It reproduces a very clear tone without sounding thin. It has a master volume control with 2-band treble and bass EQ. To save you from putting an unsightly clip-on tuner on your headstock, the preamp has an easy-to-read tuner installed within it. Thanks to the onboard electronics, you'll have no problem gigging with the D’Angelico Premier Lexington Acoustic-electric guitar.
D’Angelico: a history of acoustic accolades
Manhattan's Little Italy, 1932. John D’Angelico opens a shop at 40 Kenmare Street offering handcrafted acoustics for New York’s jazz players. Over the next three decades, D’Angelico and a single apprentice became New York’s foremost builders and created over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John D’Angelico's death in 1964. After his passing, D’Angelico's legacy lived on only through his rare, legendary instruments. After decades, the D’Angelico brand has resurfaced, bringing back the playability and attention to detail of their New York roots. Today, D’Angelico uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the best materials available to create playable works of art for today's guitarist. From a one-off shop in Little Italy to the world stage, D’Angelico’s dedication to quality craftsmanship ensures that this brand won't be going dormant any time soon.
