Notes: To those of you with a passion for fine musical instruments, few names rouse as much reverence as that of John D’Angelico. His creations possessed aesthetic and tonal qualities that were so sought after, they would leave a profound imprint on the history of stringed instruments. D’Angelico’s work still represents a high mark that contemporary luthiers seek to achieve and being entrusted to oversee production for the current stewards of the D’Angelico name is not something I accepted lightly. Part of the endeavor involved reworking and redefining the existing product line. It also required updating methods of production. Additionally, we are perpetuating the D’Angelico spirit of innovation by developing new models. Are we proceeding in a way that would have pleased the old master? I hope so. I know I’m privileged having worked for a company who is intent on honoring the legacy and committed to giving one hundred and ten percent towards attaining the highest levels of quality.
