OVERVIEW

Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design.

D’Angelico's flagship archtop returns in the all-new Premier Series. Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1's balanced, organic tone recalls the sound of a classic New York jazz box. Couple that with signature D'Angelico features in the Stairstep tailpiece, Skyscraper truss rod cover, and iconic headstock, the EXL-1 embodies elegance. Its single floating mini-humbucker highlights its naturally punchy mids and warm acoustic edge. Designed for jazz players worldwide, the Premier EXL-1 is a staple. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series EXL-1 Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

    Great guitar, has the playability and feel of the excel EXL-1 but at a more affordable price. I've been using it at my local tuesday night jazz gig and it's sounding great. Surprisingly holds its tone, even if I crank my amp up.

    Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series EXL-1 Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

    I play jazz on this guitar...Paired with the small CV Little Jazz amp, you get the real deal fat jazz sound...Guitar is OK as shipped but feels rough...He neck arrived amazingly straight for an Asian guitar...The frets feel unpolished and slightly rough.....I rubbed mine down with a 3M fine sanding pad....Over the top of the frets and up and down the sides......I go for feel and not looks exactly....Mine still looks great and it feels much better will feel better more it's played...Strings I use 11 15 20 28 36 46.....Easy on fingers and fat tone...I rank this guitar better than any of the Epihones in his price, for sure.,..The nut may need filing out to prevent strings hanging up....The bridge slots on mine needed a few of them enlarged as they were making that sound whn a string gauge up.....25 1/2 scale......Low action....Good feeling neck profile....No bad frets....Tuners are a little weak....I got mine on president day sale.....Heck of a bargain....Volume and tone work nice.....Not a real heavy guitar....I love mine...
