The D'Angelico EXL-1SH is the answer for the jazz guitarist looking for maximum acoustic tone and amplified performance with a silky smooth feel. The EXL-1 is a top-flight, finely crafted, archtop guitar at an amazingly affordable price. The acoustic sound is full and resonant, while the Kent Armstrong-designed SET HUMBUCKING pickup yields an electric sound of great nuance and authority and fullness and versatility for the performing musician.
Visual appointments include some that haven't been seen since John D'Angelico himself was making instruments - the solid-brass, polished Excel tailpiece and stained wood headstock overlay harken back to the good ol' days on Kenmare Street.
