Born in NYC’s Little Italy, D’Angelico is widely regarded as one of the finest archtop guitar manufacturers of the 20th century. Nowadays, they make guitars of all shapes and sizes; all built with the same exceptional detail, mastery and flair that put them on the map.

The Deluxe 175 is their rockabilly-ready archtop, complete with Bigsby tremolo and sizzling hot dual humbuckers. It perfectly combines gorgeous retro aesthetics with razor sharp modern tone, great for everything from classic blues to modern hard rock. If you wanna scream and wail in spectacular fashion look no further than the 175!

Here’s what D’Angelico say:

Strapped with a Bigsby vibrato and high-output Kent Armstrong pickups, the Excel 175 is an archtop built for modern rock. Its fully-hollow 16-inch-wide body is perfectly balanced and pours out robust tone. The 175 is paired with a stunning chrome Bigsby, allowing for classy shimmers and warped bends -- all while its roller bridge guarantees stable tuning. Exceptionally crafted, the Excel 175 joins the ranks of legendary vibrato-equipped archtops.
