An exquisite reproduction of one of the most sought-after archtops ever.

The highly anticipated D'Angelico USA Master Builder Series reissues are limited-run models built by acclaimed boutique luthier Gene Baker, Chief Master Builder at Premier Builders Guild (PBG), and his expert build team at the PBG Workshop in Arroyo Grande, California.

The first reissue in the USA Master Builder Series is the iconic 1942 D'Angelico Excel. Based on extensive research beginning with MRIs of the original, the Excel Reissue is an authentic update enhanced by modern hardware and appointments.

The 1942 features 3A flame maple back/sides, spruce top, ebony fretboard, mother-of-pearl inlay/headstock design, tortoise multi-bound pickguard, vintage friendly varnish finish, Grover Imperial tuners, D'Angelico trapeze tailpiece, gold hardware and 6105 fret wire. This model comes with a Johnny Smith Lollar pickup with one volume and one tone pot mounted on the pickguard.
