A Premier guitar

PauloGG, 26.10.2018
A balanced, even though not rich, acoustic sound. The pickup tones run the gamut from bright to velvety dark without ever losing clarity. The neck is quite comfortable, even though the 0.12 D'Addario string set might force you to work a little bit harder if you're used to lighter strings. But you will be well rewarded: the guitar has a very seductive voice, fit for jazz, blues and other contemporary musical styles, even rock, dare I say.
It's my first archtop, and I'm very pleased of being able to use both acoustic and electric right hand techniques in the same guitar. The wide body will probably recommend a sitting down position, but the guitar is light enough (although a bit bulky, but I'm not a tall person) for comfortably standing up. If you want your first jazz guitar or, otherwise, a clear voiced companion, the Premier EXL1 should be something to consider, particularly at the current rebate price. It's made in Indonesia, even though the Premier series were claimed to be of Korean manufacture, as I have read in some posts. The cosmetic finishes might not be flawless, but the guitar overall seems very well made, with an attention to detail. This is subjective, of course, but quite frankly: she's a looker!
Later thoughts:
I found that the pickup has a slight hum, and in a small rehearsing space with a moderately loud (rock) band it was next to impossible to keep the guitar from feeding back - I guess that's not the setting for which this guitar was made, anyway, but please be aware of this. Also, the output jack became loose very quickly (I tightened it up and I hope it won't be a recurring problem). Nevertheless, I'm still very satisfied with the guitar sound and playability.

Good entry model

Peter5163, 06.11.2018
Very good entry model in the D'Angelico series for those looking for a classic archtop sound with an acoustic bottom. The 12-52 strings (wounded) distributed on a 25.5 scale provide a good print and fairly large registry, despite laminate at the top. A little like holding an "ardenner" in the hands compared to other jazz cans with 24.75 throats. Spikrak and stable neck, good job with the tires and relatively easy to adjust stall and overload (may require some habits!) To the low stringency I prefer. As usual, low-maintenance electronics on simpler models, and floating pickups do not give a lot of turning room when it comes to adjustment, but it's the classic archtop sound that holds for both small and bigger combo.
