Super Versatile

By Hank

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

I got this guitar expecting to use it primarily as a jazz guitar, but when I ran my pedal rack through it, man did it sound good! The guitar holds its own even with a bit of crunch, I really like the sound of hum buckers on these-- they are very loud and full, allowing to get a lot sounds.

      Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

      Just received my trans wine ss! It plays like a dream. I've been a fan of D'Angelico for a few years now but was never able to afford one. When I learned about these new Premier models I thought it was too good to be true. no way could i get the d'angelico quality for under a grand! I was blown away when i first plugged it in. Gonna play a gig with a friend who has an Excel SS (one of their originals) and see how it compares.

      Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

      Comfy to play, holds tuning ok, fair gigbag comes with it. Tone pots are either all up or all down, no real gradation to them. The finish seems thin enough, but is a polyurethane that doesn't seem nearly as nice as finishes on more expensive guitars. No noticeable flaws in workmanship. Slight neck dip when playing standing up. Came decently set up.

        Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

        Love this guitar! I'm usually a Les Paul guy, and this has a similar feel. Sounds great and plays great. I'm no tone snob so the pickups sound great to me. Beautiful clean tone, and great crunch through my Marshall and Vox amps. I may upgrade to tuners to Grovers, and I removed the pickguard. Just personal preference.

          Poor volume knobs no real graduation from 0 to 10. Neck heavy and frets ends were rough. Probably not bad for a beginner first guitat
