          Comments about D'Angelico EX-SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar because I wanted a quality smaller full hollow body for a reasonable price. I have a Gibson LP with 50s neck being my comparison guitar for feel, have never played acoustic, and have an Epiphone 339 semi-hollow.

          I am calling this a full hollow body because of its violin type construction, and use of a single small block (t-block) used to support the bridge. I am not reviewing the electronics because I did not buy it for that.

          I have had the guitar for nearly a month now and is quickly becoming my do-it-all guitar. It has taken some getting used to as the neck dimensions, scale, and body size require a different style. It also took a little tweaking.

          What it does well:
          - The detail and finish of this guitar is its strongest selling point. The price is a little hard to stomach for an import guitar, but the finish and detail work is amazing.
          - The sound unplugged is deep and rich comparable to any smaller size full hollow body. That is what drew me to it. I played about 20 hollow and semi-hollow in a quiet room at several GCs before I made this decision. Its sound was clearly what I wanted and far different than any others I played.
          - I have the trans black with black hardware or whatever it is called. I love the color

          My biggest complaints may be my inexperience with construction, but some I feel are valid:
          - The tail piece was not attached inline which caused problems visually and keeping tune. I removed it and shimmed one side of it. Big negative but an easy fix.
          - The neck is not mounted flat with the body, which transfers to the bridge NOT needing to be higher at low E. Normal for Dangelico?
          - The nut is not set evenly (cut) in the head. The string spacing is also noticeably off. I will have the nut replaced.
          - The only reason I spent this much was because I got 20% GC bucks with it. I think that is a more realistic price.
          - Loose internal stick-on wire loom causes buzzing

          I still love the guitar and will have any issues fixed.

          The dimension neck hurts me on the EX-SS (I believe : called "the smallest D'Angelico) !...

          Comments about D'Angelico EX-SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          This guitar is absolutly beautiful in every way. Finish and inlays are flawless with beautilul tuners and tail piece. If you are looking for guitar with that classic jazz sound and thinner body it is perfect. Also suitable for blues and some light rock. I have only owned this guitar for a month so i cannot say how well it will hold up over the years. Personally i will be handling with care and do not forsee any potential issues. Adding some flat wound strings did deepend the jazz tone though it lost some on the blues sounds. Overall this is a great guitar for the price and i highly reccomend it.

          D'Angelico EX-SS semi-hollow body

          By JOHNNY LEONARD _

          from Litchfield, ILL

          Comments about D'Angelico EX-SS Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          This my first review at guitar center! I have owned Gibson, Fender and Epiphone, and they all are fine guitars. But I have always wanted a good Jazz guitar, but could not afford a really good one like the one that Mel Bay shows on his guitar books a D?Angelico until now. I have just received a D?Angelico EX-SS Semi-hollow body in Vintage sunburst, the quality of the finish is unreal and the wood is just astounding. Then you pick it up find out that it plays as well as it looks, the neck is like glass and the sound of the Kent Armstrong humbuckers pickups are a perfect match for the Semi-Hollow body. I have to say that at first I was a little leery of buying one because any time that a company goes out of business and then years later someone says we can make a product as good as the original makes you wonder. But I have to say that Mr. D?Angelico is smiling and should be very proud, because the company that is remaking is guitars is doing him justice. If imitating is a form of flattery then the makers of the new D?Angelico guitars is doing it right, I just want to say THANK YOU!! Johny C Leonard
