Born in NYC’s Little Italy, D’Angelico is widely regarded as one of the finest archtop guitar manufacturers of the 20th century. Nowadays, they make guitars of all shapes and sizes; all built with the same exceptional detail, mastery and flair that put them on the map. The Premier Atlantic is no exception.

Bold design appointments like D’Angelico’s unique headstock design, multi-ply binding and White Pearloid block inlays ensure that it’s a real head-turner. In addition, dual Duncan-designed pickups, coil-tap controls and a satin Maple neck offer a vibrant tonal palette and a premium playability.

Body & Neck

This single-cut instrument offers solid humbucking tones. The body is basswood, offering a simple balanced tone that’s the perfect platform for fat pickups. 3-ply binding rounds it off with a luxurious old-school look.

The neck uses a Maple Scarf construction with a set-thru joint. This helps counter the subtle Basswood/humbucker combination with extra top-end brightness, great for lead playing clarity.

Hardware & Electronics

As mentioned before, twin Duncan-designed humbuckers deliver a warm but gutsy snarl. But thanks to the tonewood choices and coil-tap controls, the Premier Atlantic is no one-trick pony. It’ll clean up beautifully, just as suited to jazz as it is to anthemic rock.

Chrome hardware is used from top to bottom. This gives the Premier Atlantic a reserved but classy look, and the Rotomatic Stairstep tuners & stopbar configuration ensure tuning stability and reliable intonation. The Premier Atlantic is a workhorse instrument that’s more versatile than its vibrant looks suggest!
