D'Angelico Delivers Smooth and Dreamy Dreadnought Acoustic Tone!

The D'Angelico SD500 Bowery dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar is the perfect companion for the singer-songwriter looking for a smooth, dreamy timbre. A single-cutaway dreadnought body shape projects a big and powerful sound -- or gets nice and subtle the softer you strum. The Sitka spruce top complements a rosewood back and sides for a resonance full of body and depth, and the Fishman INK-4 preamp with 4-band EQ and an onboard tuner crafts a signal ready to fill the room.

Spruce and Rosewood Dreadnought Body

The SD500 Bowery's dreadnought body shape is capable of a big, powerful sound -- yet it lets you get nice and intimate the softer you strum. Spruce is an attractive wood fitting for guitar tops, and rosewood will push the lows and mids. Whether you're plugging in or going acoustic, this axe always sounds great.

Mahogany Neck in C-Shaped Slim Profile

Your fingers will take pleasure in your D'Angelico SD500's mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. Mahogany will push those lows and mids a little more than rosewood. As a guitar tonewood, mahogany is also a great tone sustainer. The rosewood fingerboard features 20 frets and classy mother-of-pearl block inlays.

Articulate Fishman INK-4 Preamp

When you're ready to fire this guitar through an amplifier or PA system, be sure to take advantage of your four-band EQ control to shape the tonal contours of your signal. The Fishman INK-4 preamp housed in this axe's spruce and rosewood body will deliver clear and punchy tone on demand. The Bowery also boasts an onboard tuner to keep your intonation in check.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Take the chance"
Overall: I was leary of this guitar up until my decision to buy it. The first thing is it is made in Korea. The second is D'Angelico while not new to guitar making, they are new to acoustics. I decided to take a chance and it paid off. I love this guitar. Great highs, mids and lows that compliment each other very nicely. A very solid feeling guitar and the neck feels fantastic. This quickly became my go to Acoustic and I have several upper end acoustic guitars. The Bowery has all the features and sound of my other guitars for half the price. Did I mention that it is absolutely gorgeous also ?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful guitar in both looks and sound"
Overall: As another review of this guitar says I too was a bit skittish about purchasing an acoustic guitar from a company known previously for building primarily fantastic electric hollow and semi-hollow body electric guitars. I took the jump and bought the Bowery acoustic. I must admit that I have been drawn to D'Angellico because of the beauty of the Art Deco style they use. When the guitar arrived I removed the 12 guage strings and installed the 11 Guage [I use 11 Guage on most of my guitars... I personally prefer 11 guage. I also lowered the action a bit and was finally ready for the initial test. I was immediately blown away by the magical sound and the fantastic feel of the neck. Do not hesitate to snap one of these up...you will have no regrets. It is one of those guitars that very rarely show up that sound and play like a guitar that costs three times more than this D'Angelicos.
Style of Music: Allman Brothers type (original Allman brothers when Duane(sp) was still alive and his incredible gift on slide guitar. Southern
