D'Angelico Excel EXS-1 Archtop Hollow Body

Scale: 25  |  Nut Width: 1 11/16"  |  Top: Laminated Spruce  |  Back: Laminated Flamed Maple  |  Serial Number: KS-07096151

The D’Angelico full size hollow bodies were originated by the great and only John D’Angelico. Their design is unique and timeless. Instantly you know it is a D’Angelico. It cannot be mistaken for any other guitar with its stair step tailpiece, and unique headstock design including the center finial.

This re-issue D'Angelico EXS1 New Yorker is made in the exact likeness of the legendary 1930s D'angelico New Yorker which now could sell for many tens of thousands of dollars.

This is a gorgeous guitar with a really nice action and authentic hollowbody sound (not just a bassy mess, you can really tell!). The Art Deco work on this, particularly the headstock and the tailpiece is just beautiful.

It features a Kent Armstrong Johnny Smith Style 6 Floating Humbucker in the neck position and a volume and tone control mounted on the pickguard.

This D'Angelico Excel EXS-1 is in excellent + condition with only a few very minor surface scratches. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
