Description

For the fingerstylist-cum-flatpicker, this is just the ticket: responsive to both a deilcate touch and an aggressive attack, with knockout string-to-string articulation and cannonading projection. With an alluring blackburst finish across the instrument, this Langejans W-6 looks as striking as it sounds. When Del paired this Spruce top with Walnut back and sides, he hit the nail on the head: heaps of bass are complemented by a very present middle register and sparkling trebles. Add to that classic combination a Florentine Cutaway and slim neck profile, and you've got the perfect storm of tone and playability in your hands. This may be an instrument from 1999, but you'd hardly believe it, considering the shape it's in. We've seen two-month-old guitars that sounded half as impressive and had twice as much wear and tear--this Langejans W-6 is a black diamond of a gem.

I'm always impressed by Del Langejan's work--it's obvious that he was fanatical about the tone and playability of his guitars, and this black beauty is no different. The clarity and richness in the low end is gorgeous, and the trebles seem to sing for days. I love the beautiful, subtle blackburst that he achieved with this one.
 
The sound of this guitar is rich and full with lots of character, almost piano-like. It would be great for all styles of playing. This almost-black guitar is beautiful to look at in the light. The top is actually a very dark sunburst, and the back is beautiful Walnut with a black stain that makes it look amazing. On top of that, It plays really well and sounds great. I also like the round shoulders and the Florentine cutaway, which give it a Gibson vibe that I really like.
