NEW YORK—January 2019—At the 2019 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, D’Angelico Guitars will debut the Brighton, the latest addition to its new solid-body collection. Available in both the Premier and Deluxe Series.
A sleek double-cutaway featuring deep cutaways that provide easy access to the highest frets and a lightweight body design, the Brighton prioritizes performance in every sense. Seymour Duncan humbuckers (59’s in the Deluxe; Duncan Designed buckers in the Premier) paired with a swamp ash body (alder on the Premier) offer sweet vintage tone and endless sustain, while a satin-finished slim-C neck shape makes playability a dream.
The Brighton perfectly fills out the solid-body collection—offering a slightly darker tone than its kin, but retaining a focus on versatility and performance comfort. Coil-tapping push/pull tone knobs allow for eight unique tone settings in a modest and user-friendly configuration. Stairstep tuners, Skyscraper truss rod cover, and an F-Hole pickguard bring the D’Angelico Art Deco details.
Premier Brighton finish options: Black, Ocean Turquoise
Deluxe Brighton finish options: Black, Ocean Turquoise, Natural Swamp Ash, Hunter Green
Premier Brighton starts at $799 MAP.
Deluxe Brighton starts at $1299 MAP.
