The guitars of D'angelico are inspiring in every way. In the first place they are beautiful to look at, but next to that D'Angelico guitars live up to all expectations with regard to sound and build quality.
The New York based guitar company has a rich history and is famous for their iconic jazz boxes. However, the current collection of D'angelico offers a wide collection of cool solid body, ES-style and off-set guitars as well.

The Excel SS is D'angelico's own interpretation of the well-known center-block hollowbody recipe; with a 15" wide single cut body and its refined look, the SS exudes class and style. Its body is more compact than that of a traditional ES335, but a bit larger than that of an ES339 and in combination with the woods used, the SS takes up its own, nuanced place in the sound spectrum among the other D'angelico models.

For 2022 D'angelico has released a trio of imited editions of the SS of which this beautiful royal blue Sapphire finish specifically immediately catches the eye; what a looker! Apart from it looks, the other specifications also differ significantly from the regular model. This LTD has a laminated body with a flamed maple back and side and a flamed maple top (normally the SS has a spruce top). The maple set neck features a rosewood fingerboard (normally, this is ebony) with 16" radius. The tuners are Grover Super Rotomatic locking tuners and the guitar has a scale of 25". And last but not least; the pickups are the prestigious Seymour Duncan Antiquity Retrospec's with coil splits on the tone pots.
The satin nickel hardware is a wonderful contrast to the high gloss Sapphire finish.

This guitar comes complete with original case.
