Overview

A vintage spin on the flagship model,.

The D'Angelico Excel EXL-1 Throwback embodies the legacy of fine archtops. A 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body emanates warm, woody archtop tone propelled by a single floating Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith mini-humbucker.

And visually — it's hard to look away. Old-school full-fret mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays on an ebony fingerboard lead to a scroll-style headstock designed by John D'Angelico in the '30s, while a satin ebony pickguard meets a spruce top featuring multi-bound Throwback f-holes. Includes hardshell case.
