D’Angelico Guitars is helping to raise awareness and funds for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma relief efforts. These hurricanes have caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and life-threatening damage to entire communities. Through the Red Cross, this fund will provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine in addition to longer-term assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from these storms. For every $10 donation, you will be automatically entered to win a D’Angelico Excel SS in Vintage Sunburst. You may donate/enter as many times as you like, and D’Angelico will match a percentage of the total donations. Please join us in helping to make a difference.
D’Angelico Electrozinc strings are technically a new product, having been released in 2016, but the truth is, their origins go back much farther. A collaboration between famed John D’Angelico and string innovator John D’Addario, Electrozinc strings were first produced in the late 1930s using “Bethanized” steel from the Bethlehem (PA) Steel Corporation. Though production stopped in the 1960s, the Johns’ two companies have partnered once again to recreate that classic formula as closely as possible.
A few guitar companies have used the term “deluxe” rather haphazardly in the past for instruments that didn’t quite live up to the definition of that word, but by naming their penultimate product line the Deluxe Series (surpassed only by the Master Builder series), D’Angelico has boldly taken that term back to its intended meaning.
