  Guitars for Sale.     NYS-2
  #099  D'Angelico NYS-2 FH.  CUSTOM.    UNIQUE.    2012.

I ordered it from D'Angelico in Japan as a special customer order.   My perfect spec.   The NYS-2 is a truly great guitar but I wanted the benefit of a full humbucker.   This is the only one made to this spec in my favourite violinburst and with body mounted controls.

  The pickup is Kent Armstrong.    So jazzy.
  Hand made Ebony pickguard.   It fits immaculately.
  Superb Violinburst finish.
  Perfect Flame Maple sides and back.
  The 15.5" NYS-2 compared with the 17" NYL-2    Many pro jazz guitarists are now turning to smaller body guitars for their comfort and ease of playing.    The amplified tone and power of both guitars is almost identical.   Naturally there are differences played acoustic.
  Style icon  -  the classic D'Angelico Art Deco head with diamond mop inlay on the rear..
  This guitar has been played only for a few hours since new and is absolutely Mint.    It is strung with George Benson 12's but with a 13 substituted on the top E.

Everything about it is perfect.
