A double-cutaway semi-hollow built for performance, the Excel DC is a modern classic. With deep, comfortable cutaways, a 16-inch-wide body, and a slim C-shape neck profile, the DC's playability is remarkable. Its warm Kent Armstrong humbuckers offer pristine clean tones, and its full center block fights off feedback at high volumes. The DC boasts an impressive tonal range, from enveloping low-end to crisp high-end. Now available with the Stairstep tailpiece or traditional stop-bar tailpiece.
