Written by

Elliot Stent

The Excel Mini DC model is a favourite among D'Angelico fans. With a classy, semi-hollow body sized to compact and practical proportions (14" wide) — the Excel Mini DC is super-comfortable and projects punchy, vintage-inspired tones!

Apart from its convenient, undersized body shape; Excel Mini DC also sports D'Angelico's signature headstock design, a slim "C"-shaped neck profile with a luxurious Ebony fingerboard, US-wired Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers, coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs and precise Grover Super Rotomatic tuners. The Excel Mini DC thus offers a remarkable variety of spellbinding tones, with its high-quality components guaranteeing decades of reliable use.

Semi-Hollow Body Construction

D'Angelico were early pioneers of the archtop electric guitar, so it's therefore no surprise why their stunning Excel Mini DC model follows a somewhat traditional semi-hollow body formula — harking back to the '50s and '60s. Giving the model plenty of vibrancy, definition and acoustic-like volume — especially with the bright-sounding laminated Maple tonewoods — you can expect airy, resonant sonics with singing note sustain. This design makes the instrument feel nice and light too!

Ultra-Playable Neck

The Excel Mini DC's body is joined with a strong 3-piece neck, boasting a smooth Ebony fingerboard that provides a silky touch under the fingers. The neck is shaped to a lean "C" carve which both traditionalists and contemporary players will admire, while a modern 16" fingerboard radius and medium-sized frets offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.

USA Seymour Duncan Pickups

Equally rich and clear across the tonal spectrum, the Excel Mini DC's US-made Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers yield nostalgic old-school tones. Their medium outputs make them ideal for expressive players who like to have plenty of dynamic range. Push/pull tone knobs allow for easy coil-splitting too, broadening the instrument's palette of sounds to include some bright, single-coil spank!
