EXCEL DC (with stop-bar tailpiece) BLACK

 

REMARKABLE VERSATILITY, SEMI-HOLLOW SWEETNESS

The Excel DC is a standout double-cutaway semi-hollow offering classic tones and modern versatility. With deep, comfortable cutaways and a slim C-shape neck profile offsetting its 16-inch-wide body shape, the Excel DC's playability is remarkable. Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers provide an impressive tonal range of vintage-voiced warmth to glassy high-end, while its center block fights off feedback at high volumes. Now featuring a rosewood fingerboard, Jescar 47104 fretwire, and vintage-inspired Grover Imperial tuners. Now available in Solid Black

 

 

FULL SIZED, FULL TONE

A 16-inch-wide semi-hollow with deep cutaways and a lightweight centerblock, the DC offers a massively wide range of tones and remarkable sustain.

 

SEYMOUR DUNCAN 59'S WITH COIL SPLITTING

Equal parts rich and clear across the tonal spectrum, USA Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers offer vintage-inspired tones and remarkable articulation. Paired with coil-splitting push/pull tone knobs for maximum versatility.

 

C-SHAPE NECK

No matter the player, no matter the hands, a C-shape neck and 16-inch fingerboard radius makes for supreme playability free of wrist-ache.

 

GROVER IMPERIAL TUNERS

Grover Imperial tuners inspired by vintage D’Angelico’s from the 40s and 50s ensure consistent and accurate tuning with a 16:1 gear ratio.
