Starting with the classic design, decorative appointments, exquisite tonewoods and spectacular performance of the full-sized NYL-2, we added the big electric sound of a humbucking pickup. D'Angelico partnered with Kent Armstrong to create a pickup that captures both the acoustic complexity of the NYL-2 and the classic, fat sound of a vintage humbucker. all the classic New Yorker appointments are retained, including the ebony fingerboard and bridge/saddle, stairstep tailpiece, rosewood inlay on the back of the headstock, Grover Imperial tuners and gold-plated, pickguard-mounted humbucking pickup. Generous mother of pearl inlays, multi-ply binding and gold-plated hardware complete the aura of luxury. The NYL-2FH is a true thoroughbred, purpose-built for the stage and studio.
