“Jerry was a traditionalist and a pioneer, embracing America’s musical past while forging into the future. He understood how music can be a way to experience the unknown. This quest became a fountain of positive energy. How often does a lead guitarist play so selflessly with the idea of overshadowing the existence of ego? Every speck of me wishes he was still alive.”

I played a friend's D'Angelico last weekend and I was impressed. It wasn't an especially high end one either. Matte black finish. The neck felt good and it played really well. I didn't plug it into an amp. It seemed to feel a lot nicer than the Epiphones I used to sell at the music store.

The deluxe series is going for $7 grand and the premier is going for $1100 on musicians friend.com. A huge difference in price with the only difference being chrome hardware instead of gold and differ knobs. Weird

That explains it. They also have different humbuckers on each. The premier has D'angelico made humbuckers and the deluxe has new Seymore Duncan 59s. The deluxe has higher fretwire also.

None of that should add up to a $6000 difference. Is one USA made and the other overseas?

The Deluxe model is made in South Korea and the Premier is made in Indonesia. Besides the case, gold plated hardware and Bobby's signature on the Deluxe there really are no obvious differences in the materials which would justify the price on the Deluxe unless I've overlooked something. For about the same price of the Deluxe you can get a very nice, completely customized guitar from Scott Walker or Leo Elliott. Now, I like Bobby and it looks like a nice guitar, but holy moly...
