D’Angelico Guitars has added two new electric guitar models to its lineup for 2022, introducing the Premier Bedford and Premier EXL-1.
The New York-based guitar company is also offering new finish options for its electric and acoustic models – but before we dive into those, here’s what we know about the two new electric models…
D’Angelico Premier Bedford
The Premier Bedford is an offset model that comes with two body styles: Mahogany with a Sky Blue finish, or Basswood in Black Flake or Oxblood. The guitar also features a maple neck with a C-shaped profile, 22-fret ovangkol fingerboard and that wonderfully vintage D’Angelico headstock.
There are two Seymour Duncan P90 pickups which are routed to independent volume and tone knobs, along with a three-way pickup selector. Other hardware appointments include Grover Rotomatic tuners and a six-point tremolo bridge.
Lists for $849.
D’Angelico Premier EXL-1
An archtop model that’s likely to appeal to jazz players, the Premier EXL-1 features a laminated spruce top with flame maple back and sides, plus F-holes. maple with a C-shaped profile and an ovangkol fingerboard with 22 frets.
The guitar features a Duncan-designed floating mini-humbucker in its neck position – which routes to a single volume and tone knob. Other hardware features include Grover Rotomatic tuners and an ovangkol bridge.
Lists for $999.
In addition to the two new models, D’angelico’s Premier SS, DC and Mini DC electric guitars are now available in a new Sky Blue finish that should appeal to those who enjoy softer pastel tones.
Meanwhile, Premier LS Acoustic guitars – including the Tammany, Gramercy, Lexington, Bowery and Fulton – are all given a new Satin Vintage Sunburst finish.
