John D'Angelico is pretty well known to have been handy at building great guitars. I have no idea what these are. Samick? Jay Turser by another name? Whatever that are, they're not D'Angelicos. While I'm a vintage Gretsch snob, I wouldn't say the same about Gretsch. They were always factory built guitars and FMIC has done a respectable job of recreating the classic Gretsch guitars. I think there are/were a handful of ultra-expensive handmade D'Angelico guitars being made, but those would be the only ones that actually have anything in common with John D'Angelico's guitars.
