Teardrop New Yorker

Brings a tear to your eye. Impossible to ignore and easy to revere, the Teardrop New Yorker is a sight to behold. And once you're done staring, the Teardrop is a shocker to play. An elegant interpretation of a novel archtop style, the Teardrop's European spruce top and flame maple back offer warmth across its oversized body. Its tone is sweet and full when kept acoustic, while an unobstructed amp pairing brings crystalline projection, perfect for styles ranging from intricately-picked jazz lines to lush chords. A comfortable, slim neck shape balances the 17 and 5/8-inch body, while a hand-made signature Stairstep pickguard perfectly parallels the Teardrop shape. An homage to the celebrated craftsmanship of John D'Angelico, the Teardrop New Yorker has arrived.
