Rock n roll, old school, art deco, just some of the ways to describe this insanely cool Excel 59 from D'Angelico. This hollow body has 2 P90s that have a warm vintage sound, but throw some gain at them and they will scream! Whether you play jazz, indie rock, or experimental, this 59 has mojo and is just plain fun to play!
The all-new Excel 59 is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. The 59's 16-inch-wide, 1.75-inch-deep, fully hollow body paired with an ebony fingerboard offers woody tone and crisp articulation. It features custom Seymour Duncan Great Dane P90s, exclusive to D'Angelico, offering a massive range of tones—from warm and wooly to big and brash. All paired with vintage-inspired details like a chickenhead selector and cupcake knobs, the 59 feels timeless.
