D’Angelico Guitars’ Fan Favorite Excel SS Upgraded for 2019
Emerging as a fan favorite and carving out its own territory in the semi-hollow landscape in the seven years since the brand’s reignition, the Excel SS semi-hollow has been upgraded for 2019. For elevated tone and maximum versatility, the SS now features Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers paired with coil-tapping push/pull tone knobs, allowing for a vast range of tones and making the SS an all-in-one instrument across genres.
Joining the double-cutaway Excel DC, the SS now features split-block inlays and a gold truss rod cover, as well as new finish options—including a stunning Iced Tea Burst. Available with a traditional stopbar or trapeze-style Stairstep tailpiece and retaining its slim C-shape neck for maximum performance comfort, the new Excel SS re-asserts itself as a modern classic.
Available February 2019.
