Grover Imperial Super-Rotomatic Tuners
Grover Imperial Super-Rotomatic tuners boast an exceptionally smooth turning radius, allowing for supreme tuning accuracy and keeping you in tune longer.
Fishman INK-4 Preamp & Tuner
Renowned for their exceptional quality, Fishman has made some of the world's finest pickups for over thirty years. Featured across the D'Angelico acoustic line, their newest onboard preamp and tuner system, the INK-4, is a milestone. A sleek design that never gets in the way, the INK-4 features onboard EQ, volume control, and an LED-tuner that makes onstage tuning easy.
Slim C-Shape Neck
No matter the player, no matter the hands, a slim C-shape neck makes for supreme playability free of wrist-ache.
Exceptional Craftsmanship
Re-designed bracing, a refined headstock, and a thinner coating allow you to get the most out of your acoustic sound.
Brass Bridge Pins
FU-Tone brass bridge pins make for a shining, crystalline resonance, bringing out a crisp mid-range and enveloping low-end.
