D'Angelico guitars were top notch in the 40s and 50s. They stopped production after John D'angelico died. The name was purchased by investors and put back into production a few years ago. There are some big name artists starting to use them. Solid entry/mid grade guitars. Maybe not "as good" but comparable to a baby Taylor or little Martin. And yes, spruce is high end bell tones/resonance, mahogany is more deeper overtone.

The baby taylor and Little Martin , more or less, sound like all the other tiny "travel" guitars, which is to say, tinny with very low volume. Size wise they are good for little kids, but too expensive imo, unless the child has been taking lessons a while and really likes learning to play. Now, don't get me wrong, "tinny" can be a desirable sound and it's fine for a travel guitar, but I've owned many cheaper ones that sounded every bit as "good", were built as good or better and played good. Namely a little Washburn model that I paid $150 for on special, the craftsmanship and looks put both the baby Taylor and Little Martin to shame and it sounded about the same as those two guitars. I've owned so many guitars I've lost count, I've probably owned 8 or nine "travel" guitars over the years, some very cheap ones, and none of them stood out over the others in sound, they were all what you'd expect, just..meh sounding. The only small guitar I've really liked is a GS Mini, and that's bigger than the average travel guitar.

LOL I was on here several times wanting to hear from "guitar experts" on the same. I couldn't readily find reviews on the internet except from the company. I did find out that the wood (Mahogany vs Spruce) may have an effect on the sound output ... which makes sense but something I did not think about.

Anyways, never heard of the brand before, but I'm no guitar expert, so would love others to chime in on their experience Smilie

I'm guessing in-house brand. Entry level at best.

These basically got stupid deal for about 299 (Gramercy Bowery models and premier). I did buy, this is an old brand name now farmed out to China but qc by the company and specs by the company. Decent guitars about what you pay for. Maybe a little nicer than what you pay. The old ones like the new Yorker were handmade and pretty iconic, I never got to play one of those.

Don't know about this one. D'Angelico used to be known for their archtop electrics. Not well known at all for acoustic guitars.

This is also laminated back and side woods.

For this price, I'd get a Yamaha FS700 or similar.

With a solid top and built-in electronics, assuming they play well enough, these look to be a very good deal. As others mention, the acoustic sound will not be comparable to a full-size dreadnaught, but that's about what you should expect. If I didn't have one, I'd be in for this deal.

Iconian. Is there literally ANYTHING Adorama you won't promote for them? Seeing your name on a post is instant TD from me, every single time. Worst deal poster on this site.
