Sounds and plays as good as it looks!

By Kevin

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series DC Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

I spent a lot of time trying out various semi-hollows (even the mainstays) and kept coming back to the D'angelico EX-DC. The price was right and I picked one up a few months ago. I've never been happier with a guitar purchase. The sound on this guitar is really impressive and gives you tons of stylistic range. It sounds great playing jazz/fusion, blues (rhythm or lead), and power chords resonate like crazy on this thing. Plus, this guitar can really handle a substantial amount of gain and overdrive. Add to that the stunning looks (I opted for the cherry, which the pictures do not do justice?just beautiful), and I am one satisfied customer.

Absolutely Superb!!!

By Robert English

from Woodinville, WA

Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series DC Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

This guitar is just simply wonderful. I purchased the white one from GC and the finish is flawless. The Grover Super Rotomatic tuners are quite good. The Kent Armstrong humbuckers are extremely versatile. The thickness of the neck is just right and the fretwork is excellent but you will have to have the action set up to your taste. The design elements make this a beauty to behold. The guitar sounds fantastic and can easily cover all styles exceptionally well. D'Angelico has hit a home run with this guitar. Considering that other quality semi-hollow body electrics go for twice the price, I would encourage you to give this beauty serious consideration.

    Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series DC Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

    This guitar sounds great for Jazz, Blues & Rock. I'll use this for a couple of different gigs being that its a pretty versatile sounding guitar.

    The craftsmanship is top notch and I was impressed with the neck feel and fretwork. I had to tweak two strings for intonation and then I lowered the bridge to get the action where I wanted it. I was able to get the action very low and the guitar does not buzz anywhere. Everywhere on the neck the notes ring and it sounds clear acoustically. I have a Gibson ES335 which I love. This is as good and better in some ways. I do prefer the 57's PUPs in the 335 for rock but the Kent Armstrongs in this are great and I think this gets a better Jazz tone. It rocks as well and I ran it thru a Bogner UBerschall straight into a board and it kicked butt!

    I love the color and the flame is spectacular. I'm looking forward to using this next weekend on my gig and for years to come. Guitar Center took care of me as always! Thanks Larry!!!

      Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series DC Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stopbar Tailpiece:

      This guitar is absolutely gorgeous! The fit and finish are top shelf and every bit as good as some of the finest Gibson jazz guitars. I was a little hesitant about buying a guitar made in Korea but it looks like D'Angelico has done a fabulous job of setting up the Korean operation. Obviously that is the reason they are able to sell this instrument at such an affordable price and I would say it was a brilliant decision! Granted the top and back are a laminate but you would never know it from looking at it. A little bit on the heavy side (slightly over 8 lbs) but certainly no heavier than a Les Paul. The Kent Armstrong pickups sound awesome. I was planning on the possibility of upgrading the pickups but no plan do so now. This guitar will take a top spot in my collection. Very nice hardshell case also. An absolute steal for the price!

            THIS is a wonderful guitar! I've only been playing a few years, but in that time I have experimented with a lot of guitars, many different makes and models. The feel, speed, tone, weight, and sustain, are as good or better than guitars costing much more. The finish is also superb! In fact, I have yet to find anything I DON'T like about it! Like women, guitars are a matter of personal taste, but this one definitely deserves a good look.
