D'Angelico Premier SS Bob Weir Signature w/ Bag
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 notable players for the company include Bob Weir, Chet Atkins, and Susan Tedeschi.
