The D'Angelico Premier Tammany offers a different variety of tones than you'd traditionally get from a D'Angelico. This guitar will quickly become your go-to for casual playing and recording alike. It has an incredibly comfortable non-cutaway OM-style body that sits perfectly on your leg. The best part about the OM shape is its ability to create impeccably balanced tones whether you're strumming or fingerpicking. At Leaseville, we appreciate that this axe has an onboard preamp and tuner to make gigging hassle-free. Seriously, you'll be amazed by the intuitive EQ and tuning controls. It may have a classic look to it, but the D'Angelico Excel Tammany is built to meet the demands of today's players.
The D'Angelico Premier Tammany is incredibly playable. It has a smaller, OM style body that's made with a solid sitka spruce top and laminate mahogany back and sides. It has a slightly shallower body that sits well in your lap and reduces fatigue in your picking arm. This guitar doesn't feel like your Dad's acoustic though. Instead of having a tree trunk for a neck, the Premier Tammany has a slim, satin-finished c-shaped neck carve. Combined with the 20 medium jumbo frets, this neck feels just like D'Angelico's electric guitar necks â€” quick and effortless.
Manhattan's Little Italy, 1932. John D'Angelico opens a shop at 40 Kenmare Street offering handcrafted acoustics for New York's jazz players. Over the next three decades, D'Angelico and a single apprentice became New York's foremost builders and created over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John D'Angelico's death in 1964. After his passing, D'Angelico's legacy lived on only through his rare, legendary instruments. After decades, the D'Angelico brand has resurfaced, bringing back the playability and attention to detail of their New York roots. Today, D'Angelico uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the best materials available to create playable works of art for today's guitarist. 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.
