John D’Angelico’s original archtop design is legend, and the EXL-1 is its modern-day counterpart. True to the original in every detail and upgraded for 2018, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body. Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1—with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.
Mother-of-Pearl split-block inlays indulge in Art Deco decadence—a small but impactful aesthetic detail new for 2018.
Fingerboard Scroll Bevel
An aesthetic nod to original D'Angelico Art Deco decadence, an elegant scroll-style bevel adorns the end of the EXL-1's fingerboard.
Mother-of-Pearl Bridge Inlays
Referencing a number of John D'Angelico's original archtop designs, two subtle mother-of-pearl inlays dress up the EXL-1's ebony bridge.
Grover Imperial Super-Rotomatic Tuners
Grover Imperial Super-Rotomatic tuners boast an exceptionally smooth turning radius, allowing for supreme tuning accuracy and keeping you in tune longer.
Slim C-Shape Neck
No matter the player, no matter the hands, a slim C-shape neck makes for supreme playability free of wrist-ache.
Our reinforced signature Stairstep tailpiece makes for sturdiness, maximum resonance, comfortable string tension, and is part of D'Angelico's legendary Art-Deco aesthetic.
