D'Angelico Electric Guitars
John D’Angelico founded D’Angelico guitars in the early 1900’s. After spending time growing up in his grandfathers shop in Manhattan learning to build violins and mandolins, John D’Angelico honed his craft and worked his way up as an instrument builder. After learning the trade, D’Angelico opened his first shop in Manhattan in New York City in 1932.
D’Angelico took pride in crafted small batches of hand crafted guitars, building a reputation for making some of the best arch top guitars in the world. In 1952, John D’Angelico and James D’Aquisto teamed up to take their guitar production to the next level, releasing guitars under the independent brands of D’Angelico and D’Aquisto.
