This guitar is a beauty. It is in mint condition plays easily and effortlessly looks and sounds amazing. The attention to detail is second to none. The case is faux alligator looks great. The New York luthiers DAngelico company granted licenses to the Vestax company in Japan to hand build these guitars, and there was another company in China that was also allowed to build these guitars.
These are used by world class jazz professional guitarists, Nigel Price, Kurt Rosenwinkel, see YouTube for videos of these and many other great players of these guitars. He said: Hi Sagat, I have only found two small guitar shops in Tokyo that sell these guitars.
The best is'Walkin' which specialises in archtops. And the D'Angelicos can be found in'other archtops'. They will do personal export to the UK and my guitar came from them. The language barrier made it a very difficult process.
I believe that the construction of the top is that it is a solid wood pressed to the classic arch top shape. I don't understand the serial number maybe you can explain it to me. Never gigged, kept in its case, in a clean non smoking house. This guitar is a real bargain. Will post to you nationally or internationally.The NYSS3 B is still available, it has been produced by Crews Corp, Vestax was involved in early production. People say early Vestax' era NEw Yoker lines are great. Actually, it has been same.
Vestax is only the distribution company. Crews is the one who is producing it from the beginning. A one of the Crews staff says, New Yoker lines are well made, it has been the same, actually it is getting better in quality than early models. No shame in owning a nice Japanese Guitar.
Craftsmanship on these guitars is top notch and it is no wonder that the D'angelico family approved this replica. The guitar plays like butter. Again, this guitar is strung with. Strings and never any other type of string. If you can get your hands on one of these I doubt you will be unhappy with its potential.The item "DAngelico NYL2 Vestax Japan Handmade Archtop Jazz Semi Acoustic Electric Guitar" is in sale since Monday, July 1, 2019.
