The D'Angelico Premier DC is an affordable, semi-hollow electric guitar with class and style in abundance! Sporting D'Angelico's signature headstock design, a slim "C"-shaped neck profile with a silky Ovangkol fingerboard, Seymour Duncan Designed humbuckers and precise Rotomatic "Stairstep" tuners — this instrument offers a remarkable variety of spellbinding tones, with its high-quality components guaranteeing years of reliable use.
Semi-Hollow Body Construction
D'Angelico were early pioneers of the archtop electric guitar, so it's therefore no surprise why their stunning Premier DC model follows a somewhat traditional semi-hollow body formula — harking back to the '50s and '60s. Giving the model plenty of vibrancy, definition and acoustic-like volume — especially with the bright-sounding laminated Maple tonewoods — you can expect airy, resonant sonics with singing note sustain. This design makes the instrument feel nice and light too!
This particular model boasts a strong, snappy-sounding Maple neck adorned with a luxurious Ovangkol fingerboard that provides smooth playability. The neck is shaped to a lean "C" carve which both traditionalists and contemporary players will admire, while a modern 14" fingerboard radius and medium-sized frets offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
Seymour Duncan Designed Pickups
D'Angelico's Premier DC model comes equipped with a set of Seymour Duncan Designed humbuckers — yielding warm, nostalgic old-school tones. Their medium outputs make them ideal for expressive players who like to have plenty of dynamic range, while independent volume and tone controls for each pickup allow you to easily tweak their timbral character.
