Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar with Maple Top, Back, and Sides, Maple Neck, Ovangkol Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Black Flake

Powerful Double-cutaway Semi-hollowbody

The D’Angelico Premier DC is a rock-solid semi-hollowbody guitar with sublime tone and killer looks. Its semi-hollow maple body yields a bright resonant sound with loads of bite and sustain, while a solid center block ensures a feedback-free performance. From jazz-tinged cleans to high-gain distortion, the Premier DC is capable of serving up just about any tone you can think of, making it a suitable choice for an endless variety of musical genres. Getting around this electric guitar’s comfortable “C”-shaped neck feels effortless, and its fast-and-smooth 14-inch-radius fingerboard is a pleasure to play. The Premier DC boasts plenty of eye-catching aesthetic touches, including a 5-ply pickguard, mother-of-pearl block fingerboard inlays, multi-ply binding, and a Skyscraper truss rod cover. If you’re hunting for a fun-to-play semi-hollowbody, pick up a D’Angelico’s Premier DC. But be warned — you won’t want to put it down!

Top-shelf tonewoods yield top-shelf hollowbody tones

The Premier DC features a resonant all-maple semi-hollowbody with a comfortable double-cut shape. As a tonewood, maple positively shouts, yielding a bright tone with long sustain and a lot of bite. This bell-like tone enables your notes to spring to life, then gently decay into a long sustain — perfect for leads and solos. A solid center block effectively keeps feedback at bay. The Premier DC’s set-through maple neck not only lends incredible sustain to your playing, it also adds a bit of snap to your sound. The neck is capped with an ovangkol fingerboard. The guitarists here at Sweetwater appreciate ovangkol for its smooth feel and warm tonality.

Seymour Duncan Designed pickups deliver classic humbucking tones

The D’Angelico Premier DC comes loaded with a set of classic-sounding chrome-covered Seymour Duncan Designed humbuckers. The HB-101 bridge pickup boasts an Alnico V magnet and winding specs based on a late-1950s PAF design. This vintage-inspired pickup is a great all-rounder — it handles jazz-tinged cleans, high-gain distortion, and everything in between. The HB-102 neck pickup also employs an Alnico V magnet, but is a tad overwound for hot-rodded humbucker tones. It will really make your amp scream! A 3-way toggle allows for easy pickup switching, and each pickup features its own volume and tone knob for maximum tonal versatility.

D’Angelico: Excellence Embodied

Manhattan’s Little Italy, 1932. John D’Angelico opens a shop at 40 Kenmare Street offering handcrafted acoustics for New York’s jazz players. Over the next three decades, D’Angelico and a single apprentice became New York’s foremost builders and created over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John D’Angelico’s death in 1964. Following his passing, D’Angelico’s legacy lived on only through his rare, legendary instruments. After decades, the D’Angelico brand has resurfaced, bringing back the playability and attention to detail of their New York roots. Today, D’Angelico uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the best materials available to create playable works of art for today’s guitarist. From a one-off shop in Little Italy to the world stage, D’Angelico’s dedication to quality craftsmanship ensures that this brand won’t be going dormant any time soon.
