DíAngelico NYSS-3b LTD.

 The Holy Grail of semi-acoustics.


In 2013, the NYSS-3b Limited Edition was introduced with the suffix LTD.

These guitars were hand made to the same exacting standards as all the Vestax instruments but using exquisite woods to create masterpiece instruments.  They have their own special LTD cases too,  finished in Silver stripe outside and plush Silver lining.


They have become collectors items.

Initially, several exotic woods were used:   Hawaiian Koa, Silky Oak, Quilted Mahogany and Bubinga.     Only 6 examples were made in each wood but with variations to the colours of the body and neck so that each guitar remains unique.  

In 2014 a series Birdseye Maple LTD were released.

In 2015 six further LTD have been made in Jacaranda and then some in Burl Mahogany..


From my personal collection. I am now offering the Birdseye Maple body in Natural with Maple neck and rims in Vintage Natural.    The effect is stunning.  

Only two guitars were made in this spec.


As always,  these photos donít do justice.   This guitar is immaculate.
