D'Angelico NYL-2 For Sale, D'Angelico, NYL-2, NYL 2,
New Yorker, NYL, For Sale,
Vestax period 1999-2008.
I had seen photos of
D'Angelico's Gig-bag on the accessories page of their early
"Coltsfoot" catalogue but in more than ten years I had never seen
one. I had the opportunity to acquire this
one in the US last year and bought it out of interest.
It is for an NYS-2 but is a good fit for the NYSS-3b and
NYSD models too.
Here are a series of
pics with my NYS-2 acoustic and electric for perspective.
This size is for the
smaller bodied NYS-2.
Lightweight and easy to
carry but very robust.
The lid opens wide, just
like a case, for good access. Deeply padded
Velcro strap limits any
movement in transit.
It has the D'Angelico
quality feel about it. Something of a
style icon too.
Two large storage
compartments in the lid.
A full sized pouch at
High-tech fabric. It
is insulated, it breathes and is waterproof.
The logo is machine embroidered.
Backpack straps and a
carry handle too.
A small pouch on the
back of the head.
Something of a Rolls
Royce of a Gig-bag. Real craftsmanship
here, just like the Vestax guitars.
