D'ANGELICO GUITARS OF AMERICA
D’Angelico Guitars is a New York City-based luxury guitar brand. From the 30s to the 60s, D’Angelico archtops were considered the pinnacle of guitar-making, seen in the hands of legendary players such as Chet Atkins and Frank Sinatra's guitarist, Tony Mottola. Undergoing a change of ownership in 2011, D’Angelico is now in the midst of a modern resurgence, working with legendary players such as Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead, and guitarists and producers for Future, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar.
