Overview

A 1930s-style archtop with legendary jazz tone.

The D'Angelico Excel Style B faithfully recreates the hollowbody archtops that defined the jazz era of the 1930s. With its short 24.75" scale, slim C neck profile and woody acoustic resonance, the Style B makes rhythm playing feel natural. The DeArmond Rhythm Master pickup authentically captures the warm, vintage tone that made archtops staples of jazz. For amplified playing, the pickup's transparency provides rich, mellow sound. With improved ergonomics, including a redesigned neck shape for enhanced comfort, the Style B embodies the spirit of jazz while upgrading playability. The floating ebony bridge and Stairstep tailpiece grant excellent sustain and resonance. Available in this vintage-inspired Dark Iced Tea Burst finish, the D'Angelico Excel Style B lets you channel the lush tone and feel of a classic archtop.

Vintage Rhythm Master Pickup for Iconic Jazz Tone

The Excel Style B hollowbody brings back the legendary DeArmond Rhythm Master pickup, recreating the amplified jazz sound of the 1930s. With remarkable transparency that captures the Style B's warm, woody acoustic tone, the Rhythm Master pickup lets you experience archtops as they were meant to be heard. From mellow rhythm comping to singing lead lines, the Rhythm Master pickup elevates the Style B's resonant voice with vintage character. The floating ebony bridge and Stairstep tailpiece further enhance sustain and resonance for expressive playing. When you plug in the Style B, you'll feel transported to the era of jazz's rise.

Short Scale and Slim Neck Profile Enhance Playability

Designed for jazz rhythm playing, the Style B has a 24.75" scale length, making chords and comping patterns smooth and comfortable. The redesigned slim C neck profile maximizes playing ease while providing excellent handfit. With just 20 frets, the Style B gives you fast access to essential notes and facilitates chord voicings. The 12" fingerboard radius contributes to the Style B's overall playability, offering a feel familiar to electric guitarists. When you pick up the Style B, you'll be inspired to play, solo and explore new musical ideas.

All-Solid Construction Yields Rich Resonant Tone

With its all-solid spruce top, maple back and sides, the Style B resonates with the depth and character of vintage archtops. The fully hollow maple body provides warm, balanced acoustic tone. Combined with the Rhythm Master's transparent reproduction, the Style B's resonant construction makes your playing sing whether amplified or acoustic. Premium appointments like an ebony fingerboard, Grover tuners and Jescar frets complete the professional-grade build. The Style B's materials and construction let your musicality shine.

Vintage-Inspired Aesthetics Honor Jazz Legacy

From its 17" wide fully hollowbody to the floating ebony bridge, the D'Angelico Excel Style B is a beautiful homage to the 1930s jazz era. Available in Dark Iced Tea Burst and Amber sunburst finishes, the maple back and sides exhibit elegant flame figure patterns. With graceful f-holes, gold hardware and a mother-of-pearl logo, the Style B embodies old-school sophistication. The Style B comes with a deluxe hardshell case for safe transport and storage. Bring home the D'Angelico Excel Style B to experience the tone and legacy of jazz's golden age.
