What's the deal with refurbished?
This instrument was either an overstock or was deemed by the factory to have an imperfection. Check the description to see exactly why this instrument is considered refurbished. We scrutinize every instrument we sell and pass along all information from the refurbisher so that you know exactly what you are getting. The guitar is stamped “used” on the back of the headstock but the original serial number is present and not tampered with. These are like new with little or zero play wear!
D'Angelico's celebrated SS model has arrived in the Premier Series. A 15-inch-wide, single-cutaway archtop strapped with custom D'Angelico humbuckers, the Premier SS delivers a warm, full-bodied tone that is still crisp and clear. From clean jazz to soulful rock grit, its versatility is unmatched. Available with our signature Stairstep tailpiece and only a post behind the bridge; a traditional stop tailpiece with a full center block; or in a closed-top no f-holes option.
This particular instrument has a tiny dark spot in the fretboard inlay at the first fret and some scuffing on the rear edge of the headstock tip. There are a few subtle paint imperfections over the binding of the guitar: a spot on the headstock where the paint line between binding and side of the headstock wavers slightly, a tiny dark speck over the body binding and a little bit of color on the binding of the neck heel cap. We have included a close-up
photo of each imperfection. Aside from what we have described, this instrument is in mint condition.
How Does It Play?
Our photographer (and a darn good player) made a note that he really enjoyed the feel and tones of this model when he gave it
a good check over before shooting it. We have given the guitar a thorough
setup and have it playing nice and low, with string action measuring 5/64" at the 12th fret on the low E string and 4/64" on the high E. No buzz. It is ready to go!
