D'Angelico Excel EXL-1 Hollowbody Archtop Vintage Sunburst
*This listing for a store demo model EXL-1 that does not have any damage, but may show small signs of use on the sales floor for demo purposes. Our dealer warranty still applies and the advertised price reflects this!*

John D’Angelico’s original archtop design is legend, and the EXL-1 is its modern-day counterpart. True to the original in every detail, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body. Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1—with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.
