THE ORIGINAL JOHN D'ANGELICO ARCHTOP DESIGN

John D'Angelico's original archtop design is legend, and the EXL-1 is its modern-day counterpart. True to the original in every detail, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body. Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1-with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.

ORIGINAL ARCHTOP DESIGN

True to John D'Angelico's original archtop design in every detail, the Excel EXL-1 is a 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep archtop strapped with only a single floating mini-humbucker.

SEYMOUR DUNCAN JOHNNY SMITH FLOATING MINI-HUMBUCKER

Paired with wide open archtop body design, a Seymour Duncan USA Custom Shop Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker gives the Excel EXL-1 its legendary warm acoustic tone.

FLOATING EBONY BRIDGE

Referencing a number of John D'Angelico's original archtop designs, a floating ebony bridge with two subtle mother-of-pearl inlays add to the EXL-1's woody tone.

SLIM C-SHAPE NECK

Gone are the days where big guitars are unplayable. The Excel EXL-1 features a friendly slim-C neck shape for all players.
