By pairing a solid Sitka spruce top with back and sides made from laminated mahogany, the D'Angelico Premier Bowery manages to deliver a mature acoustic response at a compelling price. This acoustic-electric cutaway dreadnought gives you full access to all positions up and down its spacious 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard. The Premier Bowery's C-profile mahogany neck joins the body by way of a dovetail joint for maximum tonal transfer. This means big sustain and rich resonance, unplugged or into a PA. The Premier Bowery includes onboard D'Angelico electronics with 3-band EQ and onboard tuner to keep you sounding your best in a live-performance setting. Antique Bronze hardware, a bone nut and saddle, and those delicious D'Angelico Art-Deco appointments â€” Skyscraper, Stairstep Tuners, Shield, and rosette â€” round out this impressive cutaway dreadnought.
If you're taking your D'Angelico acoustic-electric to a gig, chances are you'll be plugging in rather than miking up. The Premier Bowery comes pre-loaded with a D'Angelico preamp and pickup system for easy-peasy plug-in tone when taking your music to the club or coffee shop. A powerful 3-band EQ and master volume control give you full control of your tone from the stage. You also get a simple onboard tuner to keep you sounding your best in a live performance setting. A battery indicator lets you know when it's time to reach for a new 9-volt.
The Premier Bowery acoustic-electric continues in the tradition of the late John D'Angelico's legendary handcrafted guitars, bringing classic appointments and forward-looking designs to the company's New York roots. Today, D'Angelico uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the best materials available to create playable works of art. From a one-off shop in Little Italy to the world stage, D'Angelico's dedication to quality craftsmanship ensures that this brand won't be going dormant any time soon. Dollar for dollar, if you're looking for a value-packed cutaway dreadnought with a big sound and big presence, the D'Angelico Premier Bowery from Sweetwater is the guitar for you.
