A Modern Spin on a John D'Angelico Original

The all-new Excel 59 is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. The 59's 16-inch-wide, 1.75-inch-deep, fully hollow body paired with an ebony fingerboard offers woody tone and crisp articulation. It features custom Seymour Duncan Great Dane P90s, exclusive to D'Angelico, offering a massive range of tones—from warm and wooly to big and brash. All paired with vintage-inspired details like a chickenhead selector and cupcake knobs, the 59 feels timeless. Now available in Vintage Natural, Viola, Black Dog, Solid Black, and Trans Cherry.
