Description

A JAZZ AGE ICON

A faithful replica of John D'Angelico's rhythm-focused archtop and go-to model throughout the 1930's, the Style B is an old-school non-cutaway archtop embodying the spirit of New York City jazz. With a 24.75" scale length and only 20 frets, the Style B is easy to wield and offers naturally rich, mellow tone. A redesigned neck shape offers improved handfit and sustain while still prioritizing remarkable comfort. And offered for the first time ever in the standard D'Angelico line, the Style B welcomes back the legendary DeArmond Rhythm Chief pickup, often seen on original D'Angelico's of the late 30s and 40s. Played acoustic, the Style B offers woody, warm tone, and thanks to the transparency of the DeArmond pickup, its amplified sound is much the same. Features include Grover hardware, an ebony fingerboard, and Jescar fretwire. Available in Dark Iced Tea Burst and Amber.
