Description & Specs

The D’Angelico Excel 59 electric guitar is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. The 59's 16"-wide, 1.75"-deep, fully hollow body paired with an ebony fingerboard offers woody tone and crisp articulation. It features custom Seymour Duncan Great Dane P-90s, exclusive to D'Angelico, offering a massive range of tones—from warm and wooly to big and brash. Additional premium features include Jescar 47104 fretwire, vintage-inspired Grover Imperial tuners and D’Angelico Shield Tremolo. Other vintage-inspired details that make this D'Angelico Excel 59 feel timeless include a chickenhead selector and cupcake knobs. Deluxe hardshell case is included.
