D'Angelico Excel SS HiRes White

D’Angelico Excel SS

The latest version of the semi-hollow Excel SS sports Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers paired with coil-tapping push/pull tone knobs for greater tonal variety. It’s also got split-block inlays, a gold truss rod cover, and new finish options like Iced Tea Burst (pictured; tasty). The slim C-shape neck remains the same as on previous iterations of the SS, and you can get it with either a traditional stopbar or trapeze-style Stairstep tailpiece. MSRP $1,799.99. | Check the price on Reverb!
