from the D’Angelico Guitars of America web site
John D’Angelico was born in Little Italy, on Manhattan's Lower East Side. At only 9 years old, he became an apprentice to his grand uncle Signor Ciani, an expert violin and mandolin maker. This apprenticeship would become the basis for construction principles he later incorporated into his world-renowned archtop guitars.
Renewed desire for archtop tone and a major 2011 exhibition featuring John D'Angelico at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art (“Guitar Heroes: Legendary Craftsmen from Italy to New York”) fueled tremendous new interest in D'Angelico guitars. The timing was perfect: The D'Angelico brand had recently been purchased and a support system of new management, state of the art manufacturing, warehousing and distribution infrastructure was built. In the initial months of operation, the D'Angelico team worked under the radar, creating and perfecting a line of authentic reissues that delivered D'Angelico quality for an affordable price. The new models were enthusiastically embraced by a revitalized audience. D'Angelico soon found itself among the most successful "new" brands in the industry.
Over the course of more than 80 years, we’ve moved from a tiny shop in Little Italy to a sprawling showroom in midtown Manhattan, but our promise remains the same: to produce exceptional guitars that uphold the legacy of John D’Angelico. With guitars in the hands of hugely influential artists and available at dealers around the world, D’Angelico guitars are back for good. Our lines, featuring both reissues and new semi-hollow designs of all sizes, are defined by their remarkable quality and tone. Bob Weir, Susan Tedeschi, Brad Whitford and an army of others endorsing our instruments speaks for itself. At D’Angelico, we maintain our legend by guaranteeing the utmost quality instruments made with the utmost passion.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
