  #036   D'ANGELICO NYL-2.


  Real craftsmanship.
  Amazing detail!
  You could be forgiven for thinking this to be ornate BUT the guitar is perfectly balanced!
  I had already been playing the NYSS-3b,  the NYL-5 and the NYS-2 and thought I should get to know the bigger archtops.     This is the fullsize 17" body, 3"deep.

All these D'Angelicos feel the same in your hands.    The neck is superb and this one played just like my 5 but with marginally more acoustic volume.    D'Angelicos somehow just let you play more freely,  better even, and this was just the same but by now you will have gathered that I prefer the thinner guitars so this was one I chose not to keep.
