We are proud to stock the D'Angelico Excel Double Cut Semi Hollow with tune-o-matic bridge in 'black dog' finish - sounds as good as it looks!
John D’Angelico was born in Little Italy, on Manhattan's Lower East Side. At only 9 years old, he became an apprentice to his grand uncle Signor Ciani, an expert violin and mandolin maker. This apprenticeship would become the basis for construction principles he later incorporated into his world-renowned archtop guitars.
D'Angelico's first shop was located at 40 Kenmare Street in New York City’s Little Italy. The shop was small, but perfect for a humble operation: D'Angelico instruments were strictly hand-made, and in very limited quantities. During the late 1930s, when production was at its peak, D'Angelico made approximately 35 instruments per year with the help of only two workers. The novelty of a D’Angelico became part of its mystique, but it was simply how the master-luthier preferred to work.
Over the course of more than 80 years, D'angelico has moved from a tiny shop in Little Italy to a sprawling showroom in midtown Manhattan, but their promise remains the same: to produce exceptional guitars that uphold the legacy of John D’Angelico. With guitars in the hands of hugely influential artists and available at dealers around the world, D’Angelico guitars are back for good. Our lines—featuring both reissues, new semi-hollow designs, and the first solid-body collection in the brand’s 85-year history—are defined by their remarkable quality and tone. Bob Weir, Susan Tedeschi, Kurt Rosenwinkel and an army of others endorsing our instruments speaks for itself. At D’Angelico, we maintain our legend by guaranteeing the utmost quality instruments made with the utmost passion.
The Excel DC Model:
The Excel DC is a standout double-cutaway semi-hollow offering classic tones and modern versatility. With deep, comfortable cutaways and a slim C-shape neck profile offsetting its 16-inch-wide body shape, the Excel DC's playability is remarkable. Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers provide an impressive tonal range of vintage-voiced warmth to glassy high-end, while its center block fights off feedback at high volumes. Now featuring a rosewood fingerboard, Jescar 47104 fretwire, and vintage-inspired Grover Imperial tuners. Now available in Black Dog.
