Neo-soul star Melanie Faye has a new signature guitar, and it’s an exquisite Deluxe DC semi-hollow from D’Angelico, finished in a custom Metallic Surf Green. 

At first blush, this is classic D’Angelico, replete with old-school style, but it’s very much a bespoke instrument based off the electric guitar that helped Faye make her name. Faye admitted that it’s a little hard to process that she has a guitar with her name on it, and describes how she fell down the D’Angelico f-hole.
