Overview

Originally designed by master-luthier John D’Angelico in 1959, the EX-59 is a classic archtop but equipped with P-90 pickups, ideal for the player who wants to exercise some attitude. Its 17 in. wide by 3 in. deep body and signature D’Angelico headstock come together to create excellent balance and playability. An exact replica of the original EX-59, this reissue keeps the ’59 flair, accentuated by the absence of a pickguard and complete with retro-vibe volume and tone knobs. Buttery but unafraid to bite, the EX-59 has been adopted by blues icon Robert Randolph as his guitar of choice. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series 59 Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

    I've got a L5ces Gibson & and an Eastman jazz box.The DiAngelico is a bit below these 2 hollow bodies but but a whole lot less than the L5 &Eastman in price.The only negative I can say is about the DiAngelico is it's just a bit heavier.

      Comments about D'Angelico Excel Series 59 Hollowbody Electric Guitar with Stairstep Tailpiece:

      Picked this guitar up a few months ago and absolutely love it. I have humbucker and single coil guitars but really always wanted to get into a something different tonally. This guitar is super expressive being fully hollow and I love the tone of the P90's. Definitely turning into one of my go to guitars!

        Great Archtop that offers different tonal colors. I really appreciate having P90's on an Archtop. I love this guitar's sound and feel. It's a ton of fun to play. Very comfortable neck, good sound. Fun to play and practice on acoustically. Electronics are also reliable and there is no feedback or hum from these pickups. Love this guitar.
