#085  D'ANGELICO  NYL-2.     2000.   VESTAX.

  D'Angelico describe it as a rich Burgundy climaxing in a transparent Ros.
  Hard to photograph but the Flame is superb!
  Just like new! Masterbuilt guitar, signed H Shino

"It sounds just like Johnny Smith's old D'Angelico!"

  This is the full-size New Yorker with 17" body, 3" deep and renowned for its superb jazzy tone as befits a full body archtop of such quality.

All the Vestax D'Angelicos feel the same in your hands but this one has that little extra special something!    Hard to beat.    The 2000 pickup on this earlier model is much warmer than the later pickups.   It sounds just like Johnny Smith's old D'Angelico!    This is a very nice guitar.

It is stunning in Wine Red which was a Customer Special Order finish,  described by D'Angelico as a rich Burgundy climaxing in a transparent Ros.      It is all original and in outstanding condition and comes with its original case.   Please not, it does not have a case key.    The whole guitar is just like new and perfect all over except for four tiny marks which resulted from an unfortunate coming together with a guitar stand!   Oops!!
