Master Builder

New Yorker

Where to buy
The return of an icon. One of John D'Angelico's most famed designs is back. The New Yorker Master Builder is a single cutaway, fully hollow work of art originally conceived in 1936. A custom DA-102B floating mini-humbucker designed by ThroBak allows every inch of the carved European spruce top to be heard vividly. Harkening back to the Art-Deco aesthetic synonymous with the D'Angelico name, the New Yorker Master Builder features 13-ply Vintage Celluloid binding, creating a striking frame for its exceptional shape. Named for the city D'Angelico calls home, the New Yorker is a symbol of world-class guitar-making.
