EMBODYING ARCHTOP HISTORY IN A THINLINE
Designed in collaboration with New York City jazz icon Mark Whitfield, the Excel SS Soho embodies both the timeless tone and teeming energy of the city that never sleeps. Featuring a fully hollow body and single Kent Armstrong "Jazzy Joe" floating mini-humbucker, the SS Soho offers warm, round low-end as well as an articulate mid-range perfect for dynamic lead-playing—and a slim C-shape neck and 16" fingerboard radius make faster lines effortless.
Premium components such as Grover Super-Super-Rotomatic Locking tuners, Jescar fretwire, and a Stairstep tailpiece bring exceptional feel and timeless vibe. A laminated spruce top featuring a Dark Cherry Burst finish pays homage to Whitfield's all-time favorite jazz boxes while striking the balance between traditional and modern.
THINLINE ARCHTOP DESIGN
For the first time ever, our classic 15-inch single cutaway shape is now available in a fully hollow format, complete with floating bridge and floating mini-humbucker.
KENT ARMSTRONG MINI-HUMBUCKER
Equipped with a Kent Armstrong “Jazzy Joe” floating mini-humbucker, the Soho offers warm, round low-end as well as an articulate mid-range perfect for both acoustic-inspired comping and dynamic lead-playing.
A deep Dark Cherry Burst finish paired with classic D’Angelico details, a decadently bound Throwback headstock, and gold hardware pays homage to Whitfield’s all-time favorite jazz boxes.
Designed in collaboration with Grammy Award winner and New York City jazz legend Mark Whitfield, the Soho SS has already seen some of the world’s most iconic stages, offering versatile archtop tone in a travel-friendly package.
