D’Angelico unveils the very first baritone versions of its electric guitars


D’Angelico has given its Deluxe SS and Deluxe Atlantic electric guitars the baritone treatment – here’s what you need to know.

Announced last week, the two baritone electric guitars are variations on two classic D’Angelico electric guitar designs, the Deluxe SS and Deluxe Atlantic models, with 26.75-inch scale lengths and fancy gold hardware.

The Deluxe SS Baritone is a semi-hollow model that comes in Satin Honey or Satin Trans Wine finishes. It has a 15-inch-wide laminated maple body finished with five-ply binding, along with a three-piece maple-walnut neck and 16-inch-radius ebony fingerboard.

When it comes to sound, players can expect a thick, pronounced midrange alongside clean, elegant, clear tones, says D’Angelico. That’s largely thanks to a pair of Seymour Duncan Great Dane P-90s.

The Deluxe Atlantic Baritone solid body is next and comes in Solid Black or Satin Walnut finishes. This single cutaway guitar has an alder body, set-in maple neck and 14-inch radius ebony fingerboard. Plus, its push-pull knobs let you split coils for even more tonal variety.

D’Angelo says the Deluxe Atlantic offers “sparkling highs” and a “powerful, punchy” midrange. It comes with a pair of Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4 humbuckers.

The Deluxe SS and Deluxe Atlantic baritone models are available now, priced at $2,199 and $1,699 respectively.

In other D’Angelico news, the brand earlier in September launched its first-ever signature acoustic in collaboration with singer-songwriter and YouTuber Josh Turner. Considered his “lightest and most resonant acoustic guitar to date”, the Excel Josh Turner Tammany is a cutaway orchestra model with a vintage-inspired look.

The Excel Josh Turner Tammany is limited to 50 pieces, each hand-signed by the guitarist, and is sold exclusively in the United States.
