The New Yorker NYSD-9 is the Rolls Royce of solid-bodies. The finest mahogany is used for the body and neck, along with a carved, highly figured maple top that adds both exquisite beauty and a signature "snap" to the amplified sound of the guitar. A pair of gold-plated humbucking pickups with adjustable bridge and "stop" tailpiece produces the classic solid-body sound - with the attention-grabbing look of D'Angelico. Luxury appointments like multiple ply binding, gold-plated Grover Imperial tuners and split- block, genuine mother of pearl inlays make this a unique gem among solid-body guitars, Big tone and warm sustain make the NYSD-9 the perfect guitar for anything from loud electric Jazz to screamin' Rock 'n Roll. It's a totally balanced, comfortable and practical work of art, just waiting for you to strap it on and plug it in.
