D?Angelico completed this beautiful sunburst Excel on February 8, 1947 for a customer named Schullman. This guitar was once part of the collection of Japanese businessman Akira Tsumura. The floating pickguard may be missing, but its absence only reveals the warm glow of rich sunburst finish in more detail. With the exception of the missing pickguard, this guitar possesses typical features of a D?Angelico Excel from the 1940s, including its gold-plated stairstep tailpiece, block fretboard inlays, and Excel headstock inlay. Serial number: 1742 Top: Spruce, sunburst finish Back and sides: Maple Neck: Maple Fretboard: Ebony, Pearl block inlays beginning at the 3rd fret Frets: 20 Bridge/tailpiece: Ebony, gold-plated D?Angelico stairstep trapeze Tuners: Kluson Sealfast with keystone buttons
