MartyGrass Posted April 10, 2022 Share Posted April 10, 2022 This guitar was from the 1990s and was built by the original Heritage owners as a limited run of D'Angelicos. This guitar is one of the last ones they built. It came without a pickup, like the early D'Angelicos were made. Rob Doolittle, a Kalamazoo luthier from Kalamazoo Guitar Company https://www.kalamazooguitarcompany.com/ installed a Dearmond 1100 pickup, which was made in a limited run for Guild about a decade ago. This pickup was built as a true copy of the 1950s originals. https://www.djangobooks.com/Item/dearmond-rhythm-chief-1100-gold Pickups get a lot of hype, but this one really does sound great with that single coil sparkle and little hum. The tone and volume pots are under the pickguard. Gary Hines, who is a member of HOC and a superb luthier, got this pickup for me. Rob Doolittle put in the end jack and installed the pickup. I am indebted to both. Here are the pre-installation pics. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
