A(n Almost Genuine) D’Angelico For Less Than 5 Grand

Yup; that’s right; here it is. This is one of John D’Angelico wartime upgrading jobs. Not a 100 % authentic D’Angelico, to be sure, but a very pretty player. And buying it will bring you a little extra, because in the guitar case “There’s a box containing a somewhat dried out fake nose, complete with box, copyright 1961, titled “The Snoz” – “Most natural looking of all” – with the instructions: “When smoking the smoke can be blown thru nose holes to make it look real.” How about that?
