The Excel SS has earned its place as a modern standout. A 15-inch-wide single-cutaway archtop, the SS is lightweight, punchy, and versatile. High-output Kent Armstrong humbuckers make for crisp attack and remarkable resonance, while a slim C-shape neck profile offers maximum comfort. Revered by players from Bob Weir to Kurt Rosenwinkel, the SS is no stranger to stages. Now available with both our signature D’Angelico Stairstep trapeze-style tailpiece or a traditional stop tailpiece with full center block.
No matter the player, no matter the hands, a slim C-shape neck makes for supreme playability free of wrist-ache.
D'Angelico Excel Series guitars are strapped with Kent Armstrong Vintage 57 humbuckers for natural, organic tone.
Grover Imperial Super-Rotomatic tuners boast an exceptionally smooth turning radius, allowing for supreme tuning accuracy and keeping you in tune longer.
Our reinforced signature Stairstep tailpiece makes for sturdiness, maximum resonance, comfortable string tension, and is part of D'Angelico's legendary Art-Deco aesthetic
