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 Bedford is D’Angelico’s offset design. Combining retro cool with a slick contemporary tonal palette, it’ll be sure to turn heads with both looks and sound!

Legendary D'Angelico Guitars - The Hottest Guitars on the Block?

Body & Neck

The uniquely-shaped body uses basswood, offering a simple balanced tone that’s the perfect platform for fat pickups. The shape is surprisingly ergonomic, with great upper-fret access for soloing and high-register chords.

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

Hardware & Electronics

The Premier Bedford comes with 2 Duncan-designed pickups; an HB-101 humbucker in the bridge and HB-102 single-coil stack in the neck. This, combines with a coil-split and 3-way switch, offers an array of slick tones. Perfect for everything from punk-rock to glittering pop-funk.

Chrome hardware is used from top to bottom. This gives the Premier Bedford a reserved but classy look, and the Rotomatic Stairstep tuners & stopbar configuration ensure tuning stability and reliable intonation. This is a true workhorse instrument that’s also out to make a statement!
