D'Angelico Excel SS Tour Slate Blue

$883.30

ELEGANCE MEETS BOLDNESS

The SS found in the Excel Series Tour Collection is poised to become a modern classic in the world of semi-hollow guitars. With a goldilocks 15-inch-wide body and deep single cutaway, the Excel SS Tour is ideal for players looking for an elegant, stripped down semi-hollow designed to accommodate a wide variety of genres and playing styles. Equipped with a set of the all-new Supro Bolt Buckers, the Excel SS Tour provides a vast array of sweet, singing tones, customizable with a simplified electronics configuration and wiring that allows for top-end clarity to be retained as the volume knob is rolled down. A C-shape neck profile offers maximum comfort and playability, while an ebony fingerboard with a 12-inch radius strikes the balance between fast-playing ergonomics and chordal comfort. Featuring an alternative retro aesthetic including 1930s-inspired diamond F-holes, the Excel SS Tour offers a timeless look alongside timeless tones. Now available in Slate Blue.

 

VINTAGE-INSPIRED MINIMALISM

An elegant single-cutaway design with a goldilocks 15-inch body width, the SS Tour offers both woody warmth and vivid articulation. No pickguard and 1930s-inspired diamond f-holes bring old-school charm.

 

NEW SUPRO PICKUPS

Supro’s take on the most sought-after P.A.F. Humbuckers, Bolt Buckers provide bold, vintage-inspired clarity. Warm and balanced yet offering growling tones, Bolt Buckers are infused with old-school Supro attitude, utilizing an Alnico 2 magnet in the neck and Alnico 5 in the bridge to create the perfect pair.

 

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

A 12-inch fingerboard radius and medium jumbo fretwire on an ebony fingerboard make for effortless playability. Paired with a C-shape neck with extra thickness in the shoulder for snug hand-fit and added sustain.

 

A REFINED ALTERNATIVE

Custom tuners from Grover offer a 15:1 gear ratio, providing precise tuning and contributing to a lightweight headstock. A satin nickel finish and cream buttons offer vintage-inspired minimalism, while an undersized Throwback headstock with 5-ply binding offers an understated alternative to the typically ornate D’Angelico aesthetic.
