from the brand Over the past five years, D’Angelico Guitars has had the pleasure of re-emerging as one of the world’s finest guitar companies. We have worked tremendously hard to uphold the legacy of our brand name while forging further into innovation than ever before. And we thank our customers and fans for their continued support in our endeavors. For 2017, the D’Angelico product line has expanded and is now organized into four series: Premier, Excel, Deluxe, and Master Builder. Re-structured to make it easier than ever to find the exact instrument you are looking for, the Premier Series is comprised of exceptionally-crafted, accessibly-priced models; the Excel Series contains the diverse models our audience has come to know and love; the Deluxe Series is made up of our six most popular models but with upgraded features including a coil-tapping six-way switch; and the Master Builder Series is comprised of all hand-made archtops made at home in New York City. Also, for the first time in more than fifty years, we have re-forged our partnership with D’Addario to debut Electrozinc, our first ever electric round-wound guitar string. We could not be more excited for the year to come. The story of D’Angelico Guitars is young, and this new chapter is going to be one we look back on with pride. As always, thank you for helping us carry on the tradition of one of the world’s finest guitar brands.

Electrozinc Strings

Re-forged. More than fifty years ago, John D’Angelico and John D’Addario’s chance meeting resulted in the invention of the world’s first modern round wound electric guitar string, the zinc-coated Bethanized™ Steel. Its sound was unrivaled in fullness, volume, and brightness. Its tone is featured on some of the greatest records of all time. But the closing of the Bethlehem Steel plant in the ‘60s put an abrupt end to its production, leaving its sound unmatched for over half a century. Today, their legendary innovation returns in the form of Electrozinc: a zinc-coated round-wound electric guitar string from D’Angelico, engineered by D’Addario.
