Information

What's the deal with refurbished?

This instrument was deemed by the factory to have a cosmetic imperfection or to need a repair. Check the description to see exactly why this instrument is considered refurbished. We scrutinize every instrument we sell and pass along all information from the refurbisher so that you know exactly what you are getting. The guitar is stamped "used" very lightly on the back of the headstock above the serial number. These are like new with little or zero play wear!

 

The Excel SS has re-asserted itself as a modern standout. A 15-inch-wide single-cutaway semi-hollow, the SS is lightweight, punchy, and versatile. Perfectly balanced Seymour Duncan 59 Humbuckers provide savory vintage tone—including coil-tapping push/pull tone knobs for single-coil sweetness—while a slim C-shape neck profile offers maximum comfort. Revered by players from Bob Weir to Kurt Rosenwinkel, the SS is no stranger to stages, and its full center block easily fends off unwanted feedback.

This particular instrument has a small area of slight cloudiness in the finish on the bass side of the neck heel, against the body. We have included a close-up photo so you can take a look. Aside from what we have described, this instrument is in mint condition.

 

How Does It Play?

The string action measures just 5/64" on the low E string at the 12th fret, and 4/64" on the high E string without any buzz. The guitar feels great and sounds great, with a nice round bloom on every note. This is noticeable before even plugging in. And with a pair of USA-made Seymour Duncan ‘59 humbuckers, the tones can be soft and sweet or hard-hitting and powerful, but the notes never lose their warmth and complexity.

 

The D’Angelico Deluxe Hardshell case pictured is included.
