One of D’Angelico most popular models, the Excel (EXL) was the company’s flagship model in the 1950s. D’Angelico reissued and expanded the line to bring you the ELX-1 in a natural finish. The archtop hollow-body guitar has vintage gold-plated hardware that perfectly complement the instrument’s appointed details—from the stair step-style tailpiece to the classic headstock. The handmade guitar has an undeniable refined visual presence.

This EXL-1 has a lightweight laminated spruce top and a laminated flamed maple back. Hard maple sandwiches a walnut center strip in the neck, lending to the ebony fingerboard’s comfort. You’ll find mother-of-pearl block inlays across the fingerboard. EXL-1’s headstock is a throwback to the original vintage Excel design, including the signature gold pin at the crown. The dark floating rosewood bridge matches the stair step-style pickguard and fingerboard, providing a nice contrast to the guitar’s natural color. The floating humbucker pickups deliver a full register of rich, clear tones that never overwhelm. When you receive the EXL-1, you’ll find it set up and ready to play.
