Upon its return to the Premier Series, the flagship D'Angelico archtop has received a makeover. Now featuring a satin finish over natural wood tones, the Premier EXL-1 offers warmer, woodier archtop tone than ever before. With a slim C-shape neck, medium vintage fretwire and comfortable 1 and 11/16" nut width, the EXL-1 is remarkably playable, whether you're a young jazzer or seasoned vet. Featuring classic Art Deco aesthetic flourishes and a single floating Duncan Designed mini-humbucker for unobstructed, articulate tone, the Premier EXL-1 is a standout in its class.
