NEW YORK, NY — This winter, D’Angelico Guitars will debut their all-new Premier Series, a line comprised of some of their most popular models, available in new, innovative variations.
The Premier Series features the EXL-1, DC and SS archtop designs, as well as additional new models to be released post-debut, in 2017. The series was designed by the D’Angelico team in New York City as well as based on original models from master-luthier John D’Angelico. Featuring customized, proprietary pickups and hardware, the line focuses on exceptional craftsmanship with the aim of maximum tonal versatility and comfort.
“We are beyond proud to debut the Premier Series this winter,” says Brenden Cohen, CEO. “We have worked extremely hard to make this an innovative line of guitars that consumers will be excited about. These are guitars we have wanted to offer for a long time.”
Notably innovative in the Premier Series is the closed-top, no f-holes option for the two thin-line semi-hollow guitars in the series, the DC and SS. Designed to resist feedback in a louder context, the DC and SS with no f-holes are still semi-hollow guitars, but with the added benefit of not having to consider the feedback to which guitars with f-holes are prone. Also new is the full center-block option on the SS with a stopbar tailpiece — as opposed to only a post behind the bridge paired with the signature Stairstep tailpiece — making it a true semi-hollow design.
