WARM, WOODY ARCHTOP TONE
Upon its return to the Premier Series, the flagship D'Angelico archtop has received a makeover. Now featuring a satin finish over natural wood tones, the Premier EXL-1 offers warmer, woodier archtop tone than ever before. With a slim C-shape neck, medium vintage fretwire and comfortable 1 and 11/16" nut width, the EXL-1 is remarkably playable, whether you're a young jazzer or seasoned vet. Featuring classic Art Deco aesthetic flourishes and a single floating Duncan Designed mini-humbucker for unobstructed, articulate tone, the Premier EXL-1 is a standout in its class. Now available in two vintage-inspired finishes: Satin Walnut and Satin Honey Blonde.
THE PINNACLE OF ENTRY-LEVEL ARCHTOPS
Based on John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1’s body shape makes use of the legendary archtop blueprint while offering modern comfort.
PUNCHY MIDS AND ACOUSTIC EDGE
A single floating mini-humbucker highlights the EXL-1’s natural mid range and warm acoustic edge.
Offering signature D’Angelico features in the Stairstep tailpiece and iconic oversized headstock, the Premier EXL-1 offers remarkable sustain and rich harmonic overtones.
