Inspired by John D'Angelico's legendary original archtop design, the Excel Series EXL-1 carries all the classic Art Deco-inspired details, like the scroll-style neck bevel, gold-finish truss rod cover and iconic D'Angelico "stairstep" tailpiece. With a floating USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith mini-humbucker that lets the spruce top resonate freely, its sound is stunning, both acoustically and plugged in.
