D'Angelico 1940 A-1 Sunburst 16" Archtop SN: #1484 with DeArmond Pickup
This will be the one that got away for many. Although among the most affordable D'Angelicos, this model is one of the most versatile. This would be the one to play absolutely any style of music on, and it really comes alive when plugged in. Hand made by the master luthier, John D'Angelico, this guitar was an alternative model to the Gibson L-5.
Maple back and sides, Spruce top, Guild DeArmond pickup added later. Very modern feeling fast playing neck in comparison to other guitars of it's time.
This guitar was played and loved for many years, and is in great condition showing the usual signs of wear of a guitar of it's age. This guitar comes with the original Hardshell Case, and additional custom Ameritage Hardshell Case.
