In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead's landmark album, American Beauty, D'Angelico has unveiled a special new limited-edition version of its Premier SS guitar.

A 15-inch-wide, single-cutaway semi-hollow, the guitar is outfitted with an ovangkol fingerboard and Seymour Duncan-designed humbuckers with gold covers, which are said to produce tones ranging from “clean country to gritty rock" – fitting!

The guitar sports a Satin Walnut finish with custom artwork on the front and back, and a custom headstock inlay. All looks are inspired by American Beauty's artwork.

The D'Angelico Premier Grateful Dead SS will be available next month for $1,149.
