D'Angelico Teardrop

This one-of-a-kind guitar is truly a masterpiece of it's own tier. The instrument was first publicly featured at the winter NAMM show in 2016. Meticulously built by famed archtop masterbuilder Vic Baker, this guitar is far more than an homage to it's vintage predecessor. 

The original “Teardrop New Yorker” was a commissioned build by John D'Angelico for New York guitarist Pete Girardi, in 1957. Ever since then, the instrument has turned countless heads, and attracted countless gazes. Despite interpretations being built by apprentice D'Aquisto and Monteleone, this reissue is the only one, since the original, to bear the “D'Angelico” name. 

Fitting it's name, this guitar spares nothing in features. It sports master-grade tone woods, an intricately engraved headstock inlay, just like vintage D'Angelicos, 13-ply binding around the body and pickguard, inlaid floating bridge that perfectly matches the carved top, and even some modern appointments such as a ThroBak pickup along with volume and tone controls. 

This guitar is a unique guitar, not only in tone and aesthetics, but also in story and soul. This gorgeous guitar is a centerpiece for any archtop collection.
