D'Angelico Premier Ludlow w/ Bag- Vintage White
The D'angelico guitar company began with one man- John D'angelico, who founded the company in 1932 in Little Italy, Manhattan. At its peak in the late 1930's D'angelico was known as the premier archtop builder. After John passed away the company lied dormant for years before three men-Brenden Cohen, John Ferolito Jr., and Steve Pisani- bought the company name in 1999. The new owners began with only a few reissues of original D'angelico guitars, the company soon took off and began experimenting with new designs. Some notable players for the company include Bob Weir, Chet Atkins, and Susan Tedeschi.
The Ludlow is a new and groundbreaking departure for D'angelico, delving deeper into the world of solid-body electrics this model sets itself apart with an offset look and versatile controls. Push/pull controls on the tone knobs allow for a switch between humbuckers and a split coil sound that produces more high end and clarity. A six pointed tremolo allows for smooth strat-like tremolo on a guitar that looks like anything but a Fender. A stand-out guitar for the company and the modern guitar market as a whole.
