OVERVIEW

D'Angelico style embodied in a single-cutaway semi-hollowbody.

Whatever your personal choice of genre, D'Angelico's Premier Series SS single-cutaway semi-hollowbody provides standout tone, great looks and comfortable playability. With Kent Armstrong humbuckers, its punchy midrange and crystalline highs deliver a balanced sound, while the 24.75" scale maple neck with rosewood fretboard makes it a dream to play. Aesthetically, the cream binding, bold hardware and classic D'Angelico Art Deco design touches make this a guitar that stands out from the crowd. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series SS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

    Played great right out of the box. I am a sucker for Blueburst guitars and this one looks phenomenal in person. The fit and finish is outstanding. If this guitar was made by an American manufacturer that is known for its semi-solid body guitars I bet the price would $5000 ( I used to own one of those guitars, but I think I like this guitar more). This is a really nice instrument and since I cannot afford a vintage D'Angelico, this guitar will do quite nicely. This guitar may be the best value of any guitar that I have ever purchased! If you are on the fence about this guitar. Take the plunge, you won't be sorry.

        Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series SS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

        I got this guitar from MF when it showed up on SDOTD. I did not need another guitar but I had heard good things about this brand so I decided to just go ahead and pick it one up.
        Bottom line, this is an amazing guitar!!! Beautiful workmanship in every department. The set up was EXCELLENT, the frets perfect and the action to die for. The Kent Armstrong pickups are first rate with a beautiful PAF tone that's not muddy or congested and the guitar sounds terrific in all 3 pickup positions.
        The guitar can handle any style but probably leans a little to the jazzy bluesy side... but in the bridge it can cut nicely. The only thing I did to this guitar was raise the bridge pickup a little bit. This is as good as any guitar on the market at any price.... in my opinion a total steal... get one!!!

          Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series SS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

          I've been playing professionally for over 50 years. This guitar is beautiful. Although the neck seemed kind of chunky at first, I find it really easy to play and feels great. The pickups sound great clean or over-driven. Good sustain. Action was great right out of the box. I don't think you can find a higher quality guitar at this price point.

            This is a fantastic deal - especially as a SDOTD. I own about 10 guitars and this model's quality beats both Gibson and Fender (U.S.) in my opinion. I can't afford an ES-335, but I can't believe it would be better crafted than this beauty!

                Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series SS Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

                I have been wanting a D'Angelico for almost a year. When I saw this as the SDOTD I had to try it out. Best guitar I've bought in a while (and I have about 60 in my collection now). It played great right out of the box. No set up needed. Action was great and the finish is beautiful. The solid block in the center of the body eliminates feedback that many hollow bodies get. Came with a nice hardshell case.
