"Overpriced and Not Very Good"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For all the hype around D'Angelico, this guitar was a quite a disappointment. The build and finish quality was very poor all around. The neck binding looked so bad. The pickups were ok when they worked, but the bridge pickup went out within a week of owning it. So I had to get a replacement. The second one came with some dents on the body, so by then I was just too disappointed on this guitar to keep it. Definitely played and felt more like a $400 guitar and not an $800. Thankfully zZounds let me return it. I ended up purchasing an Ibanez AM93QM for less $$ and turned out to be way better quality.
