D’Angelico Excel Series EXL-1 Archtop Electric Hollow-Body Jazz Guitar (Iced Tea Burst)

DAngelico_D_Angellico_Jazzbox_Archtop_Electric_Jazz_Guitar_Sunburst_Single_Cut_Gold_Hardware_New_For_2018_3659NEW - John D’Angelico’s original archtop design is legend, and the EXL-1 is its modern-day counterpart. True to the original in every detail and upgraded for 2018, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body. Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1—with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.

Mother-of-Pearl split-block inlays indulge in Art Deco decadence—a small but impactful aesthetic detail new for 2018. An aesthetic nod to original D'Angelico Art Deco decadence, an elegant scroll-style bevel adorns the end of the EXL-1's fingerboard. Referencing a number of John D'Angelico's original archtop designs, two subtle mother-of-pearl inlays dress up the EXL-1's ebony bridge.
