Harnessing the Grateful Dead guitarist’s wealth of experience and packing it into a high-performance solidbody electric guitar, The first signature model in D'Angelico's solid-body collection is now available in the Premier Series. Featuring Weir's concept of a tonal powerhouse, the Premier Bob Weir Bedford hosts two Seymour Duncan Designed stacked P-90s with a SC-101 single-coil nestled in the middle, plus a six-point tremolo. A standard five-way blade makes tone control easy, while an added blender pot blends the neck and bridge pickups (or all three pickups in the notch positions) resulting in a remarkable variety of tones. Further tonal variation is available via push/pull knobs on the master volume and tone, with which the player can drop out the "dummy coil" that helps establish noiselessness on the stacked P-90s and achieve a more open, airy tone. Available only in Matte Stone.
