D'Angelico Excel SS Semi Hollow in Vintage Natural

Single Cut Semi-Hollow Style and Sound

Description

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 Excel SS combines semi-hollow resonance with gritty Seymour Duncan HH tone. Naturally, it features D’Angelico’s unique headstock design, gold hardware and Mother of Pearl block inlays - every bit as luxurious as you’d expect.

Construction

This single-cut semi-hollow features a laminated flame maple body (back, sides and top) with 5-ply binding. This offers a bright, clear response that’ll ensure your guitar is heard, no matter what style. The multi-piece neck employs a strip of walnut sandwiched between solid maple, topped with a very flat 16 inch radius ebony fretboard - ideal for defined notes and fast manoeuvres.

The hardware is where some of this instrument’s true character shines through. Luxuriously adorned with gold hardware, including Grover Super Rotomatic tuners, it’s an undeniably striking instrument. But everything has a purpose; expect fantastic tuning stability, squeaky-clean intonation and reliability across the board.

Sound

Twin USA Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers deliver a warm but gutsy snarl. But thanks to the tonewood choices and coil-tap controls, the Excel SS is no one-trick pony. It’ll clean up beautifully, just as suited to jazz and funk as it is to alt-rock.
