D'Angelico Premier Series Grateful Dead DC w/ Bag - *BLEMISHED*
The D'angelico guitar company began with one man- John D'angelico, who founded the company in 1932 in Little Italy, Manhattan. At it's 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 noteable players for the company include Bob Weir, Chet Atkins, and Susan Tedeschi.
Featuring the iconic Dead 13-point lightning bolt, the Grateful Dead DC is an easy choice for a fan of the legendary jam band. This guitar doubles as a collectors item and also an exceptional sounding, and playing instrument. A standout guitar to say the least- the Grateful Dead DC features a unique look and a versatile tone.
