Master Builder

NY-DC

On the bright side. Hand-made in New York City, the double cutaway semi-hollow NY-DC can cut through a mix but remains versatile. Its neck pickup can be warm, opaque and moody, but move towards the bridge position and the NY-DC's textural tones shine, even at low volumes. A carved flame maple top and spruce center block come together to give the NY-DC a wide dynamic response and a clear, direct sound. With two custom DA-101 humbuckers designed by ThroBak, the NY-DC begs to be opened up. As with every instrument made in our Master Builder Workshop, the NY-DC is fully customizable, ready to be tailored to any player, just the way John D'Angelico offered throughout his legendary career.
