A Legend is Reborn

D’Angelico is among the most highly esteemed names in guitars.

The brand was founded in 1932 by archtop luthier John D’Angelico, the spiritual descendent of a line of legendary Italian stringed instrument master builders that dates all the way back to Antonio Stradivari. From his workshop on New York’s Lower East Side, D’Angelico painstakingly created exquisite guitars that were embraced by leading artists (Chet Atkins, Johnny Mercer, many more). They are considered among the finest guitars ever made by human hands. Our concept was to show these exquisite guitars in a new modern and innovative way.
