Overview

D’Angelico's flagship archtop returns in the all-new Premier Series. Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1's balanced, organic tone recalls the sound of a classic New York jazz box. Couple that with signature D'Angelico features in the Stairstep tailpiece, Skyscraper truss rod cover, and iconic headstock, the EXL-1 embodies elegance. Its single floating mini-humbucker highlights its naturally punchy mids and warm acoustic edge. Designed for jazz players worldwide, the Premier EXL-1 is a staple. Includes gig bag.

Comments about D'Angelico Premier Series EXL-1 Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

This guitar is great-- it has an amazing full jazz box tone that resonates really well and works for both straight ahead and modern jazz. It came setup perfectly and the neck is really slim and plays easily. A great purchase!!
