OVERVIEW

A solid dreadnought with plenty of color, both in tone and appointments.

The brand new Brooklyn (SD-400) has a voice all its own. Its rich, dreadnought shout is propelled by a sapele back, sides, and a solid Sitka spruce top. The Brooklyn's mahogany neck is capped with a rosewood fingerboard where block mother-of-pearl inlays add the class of a fresh pair of wingtips. Brass bridge pins help the Brooklyn sing, providing maximum resonance. Along with the rest of the D'Angelico acoustic family, the Brooklyn is amp-ready with the Fishman INK-4 onboard preamp and pickup system, complete with built-in tuner.

Comments about D'Angelico Brooklyn Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a well made instrument. I own the Brooklyn, two Bowerys, a Lexington , a Mercer and a Grammercy on back order. These guitars are all solid wood, good electronics, high finish with great binding , brass pins, a special head stock and they come in a case at the same price as most other guitar companies sell their case less solid tops. These guitars have needed no set up and only the back order is a new instrument the others have been level 1 and level 2 open box models.
I did send back a level three bowrey because the repair was cost more than ordering a new guitar.
These are great solid wood guitars if you want something with better quality then Taylor , better looks than Martin and better sound than Takamines and Ibanez.

Discontinued Production

By cool

from pittsburgh. pa

Comments about D'Angelico Brooklyn Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for a week and have no complaints about the guitar. Just the fact that it is already a discontinued guitar after one year of production leaves me to wonder how long this new company wiil be around. I will be returning it for a more reputable make just in case I need customer service down the road. D'angelico doesn't even take phone calls.

A legend in the making

By Fweezal

Verified Reviewer

Comments about D'Angelico Brooklyn Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have lusted in wanting a D'Angelico. No kiddin'! I played one of their archtops once and fell in lust. The price tag was a major barrier and I really liked a flat top better than an archtop for my musical style. When I saw the SD400 in the Stupid Deal of the Day, I saw my chance and snagged one. Out the box the set-up was perfect. The sound was WAY different than what I expected having a much brighter sound than either of my Guilds. This thing is built like a tank! After scrutinizing it closely, I can find nothing I don't like about it. The Fishman INK-4 system works great. My ONLY niggle is that it would have been nice to know how to open the battery door... or even where it was! Yeah... it's a definite keeper!

      i got this guitar last week and immediately was impressed by its beauty and build. I've been using to jam with friends and it has a very even tone which makes it perfect for recoding, especially with the ink system thats comes pre-installed.

      • Fishman Preamp Is Good
      • Fishman Preamp Was Good

      Cons

      • Badly Needed To Be Set-Up Properly
      • Made in Indonesia - Not South Korea

      Best Uses

        Comments about D'Angelico Brooklyn Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        First let me say that I would never have even considered buying this guitar at regular retail but when I saw that Musicians Friend reduced the price drastically, I thought I would give it a shot. Also the website states that these are made in S. Korea but the sticker on the guitar states that they are made in Indonesia. For a mid level acoustic guitar I think they are a decent guitar especially with the solid wood top, back and sides and also with the MOP block inlays on the neck. The Fishman preamp worked well and definitely was a plus. The fit and finish were all fine and the case was nice but the guitar needed to be set up as the action was fairly high. I do my own guitar work and after spending about an hour and a half adjusting the neck and working on the bridge height I was able to bring the action down to a respectable level and it now plays well. But with all of that said, again I would not buy this guitar at full retail but at the greatly reduced price they are now offering them for it was worth a shot - just expect to do some set-up work to make playable. Bottom line - good guitar for the reduced price. At full retail not so much.
