D'Angelico Excel EXL-1 Throwback - A tribute to the guitars introduced in the the 1930's, this hollow, big bodied Archtop brings the full projecting resonance and warm jazz tones that made D'Angelico famous all those years ago. The new version pays tribute to those original pieces and a special place in musical instrument history!

From D'Angelico:

A vintage spin on our flagship model, the Excel EXL-1 Throwback embodies the legacy of fine archtops. A 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body emanates warm, woody archtop tone propelled by a single floating Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith mini-humbucker. And visually—it's hard to look away. Old-school full-fret mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays on an ebony fingerboard lead to a scroll-style headstock designed by John D'Angelico in the 30s, while a satin ebony pickguard meets a spruce top featuring multi-bound Throwback f-holes.
