1995 Del Langejans W6 Guitar
(Serial No. 789) Excellent condition. Del Langejans is known for having built many guitars, but this is the model that made him famous--the slope shouldered dreadnaught. This particular model is made with Michigan Walnut back and sides, a Sitka spruce top, ebony bridge and fretboard, and is bound with curly maple. This W6 cutaway was originally custom built in 1995 for John Schroeder, who at the time was the editor of Fingerstyle Magazine. The voice is open, warm, and cystalline, and begs to be fingerpicked, strummed or played using a flatpick.
Del added a Florentine cutaway for maximum fretboard access. The pointed soundhole rosette with pearl, along with the wooden pickguard, is a design that is unique to Langejans and is is made with Brazilian rosewood. The neck has a string spacing of 1 3/4 inch that feels great with a C shape. The body is five inches deep at the tail and the lower bout is 16.25” across, giving this dreadnaught an added bass push that blends well with the midrange emphasis. Lastly, this beauty comes with an active L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system and endpin jack. Del recently refretted the guitar, reset the neck and set up the guitar. Everything else on this guitar is original. Here is a link to a YouTube video of this instrument played by the master himself, Del Langejans. Comes with a nice hardshell case.
