D'Angelico Excel SS (with Stairstep Tailpiece) Vintage natural

$2,090.88

WARM AND PUNCHY

The Excel SS has asserted itself in the world of semi-hollow guitars. A 15-inch-wide single-cutaway, the SS is equal parts warm and punchy. Perfectly balanced Seymour Duncan 59 Humbuckers provide savory tone—including coil-tapping push/pull tone knobs for single-coil sparkle—while a slim C-shape neck profile offers maximum comfort. Now featuring an ebony fingerboard for archtop articulation and remarkable sustain. Now available in Vintage Natural.

 

FLAGSHIP SEMI-HOLLOW DESIGN

A curvaceous and compact single-cutaway semi-hollow with a full-sized yet lightweight center block, the Excel SS is D’Angelico’s preeminent semi-hollow design.

 

SEYMOUR DUNCAN 59S 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.

 

EBONY FINGERBOARD

With a bright edge for greater articulation and smooth sustain, an ebony fingerboard now graces the Excel SS. Featuring a modern radius and medium jumbo fretwire from Jescar.

 

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.
