D'Angelico Premier Mini DC Electric Guitar, Champagne Gloss, W/GigbagD'Angelico
After mastering his craft during an 18-year apprenticeship, luthier John D’Angelico opened his own shop in Manhattan’s Little Italy in 1932. Catering to New York’s many jazz musicians over the ensuing three decades, D’Angelico and a single apprentice became New York’s foremost stringed instrument builders, creating over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John’s death in 1964. After his passing, the 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 the company’s New York roots.
Brand new for 2020, the Premier Mini DC is a fourteen-inch-wide double cutaway semi-hollow boasting warm and punchy tone. Sibling of the crowd favorite Premier DC, the Mini DC's undersized body, sleek headstock design and slim C-shape neck profile combine to create unprecedented comfort for every player. Equipped with Seymour Duncan Designed humbuckers and a standard three-way toggle switch, the Premier Mini DC offers rich, natural tone and sweet sustain by way of its centerblock semi-hollow design.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
