What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good - Significant wear and scratching

  One of the coveted Vestax-made D'Angelicos!  Folks who are in the know go nuts for these things and I can see (and hear!) why.  The quality of the build, from construction to cosmetics, is impeccable, particularly given the price.  The dark, full-bodied voice you hear acoustically carries over to its amplified presence wonderfully, whether you're running it through a solid state or a tube amp.  The right EQing and that tone knob rolled back put you squarely in classic Jazz tone.  You can push the boundaries, too--there's a reason players like Russell Malone and Kurt Rosenwinkel have been known to play Vestax-made NYL-2s.  Give us a call today to find out more about what makes this rare guitar so special!

D'Angelico Guitars

About Manufacturer

Over the course of more than 80 years, we’ve moved from a tiny shop in Little Italy to a sprawling showroom in midtown Manhattan, but our promise remains the same: to produce exceptional guitars that uphold the legacy of John D’Angelico. With guitars in the hands of hugely influential artists and available at dealers around the world, D’Angelico guitars are back for good. Our lines—featuring both reissues, new semi-hollow designs, and the first solid-body collection in the brand’s 85-year history—are defined by their remarkable quality and tone. Bob Weir, Susan Tedeschi, Kurt Rosenwinkel and an army of others endorsing our instruments speaks for itself. At D’Angelico, we maintain our legend by guaranteeing the utmost quality instruments made with the utmost passion.
