NGDADA = New Guitar Day Another D’Angelico

I have just acquired another D’Angelico Deluxe DC Limited Edition. I love my recent D’Angelico Deluxe DC Mini LE so much that I bought a full-body size version as well. The Seymour Duncan Antiquity Retrospec pickups have the sound I like. The Ray Butts in my Smoke and these Seymour Duncans are both unpotted, I think I like the similar open airy sound character of both pickups.

Here are the specs:

The D'Angelico Deluxe DC Limited Edition has a Laminated Maple Top, Laminated Maple Back & Sides, 3 Piece "C" Shape Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard w/16" Radius, Tune-o-Matic Bridge w/stopbar, Grover Super Rotomatic Locking Tuners, Seymour Duncan Antiquity Retrospec Humbuckers, Incl. Hard Case.

The Deluxe DC Limited Edition is a performance-driven double cutaway semi-hollow boasting powerful, versatile tone. Featuring Seymour Duncan Antiquity Retrospec humbuckers for the first time, the Limited Edition DC offers a remarkable level of crisp articulation and vintage-inspired humbucker power, while a three-way toggle and coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs allow for seamless tonal variation. A rosewood fingerboard paired with the DC's full 16-inch-wide semi-hollow body makes for untempered and warm sustain, while a slim neck shape guarantees maximum playability. Only 50 pieces worldwide.
