Information

All photos are of the actual instrument!

What's the deal with refurbished?

This instrument was either an overstock or was deemed by the factory to have an imperfection. 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” on the back of the headstock but the original serial number is present and not tampered with. 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 had a finish crack on the side of the bass side upper bout. This was sealed very nicely by a D'Angelico-authorized refurbisher to ensure there is no issue in the future. It is very difficult to see but we have done our best to catch it on camera in a close-up photo. There are a couple of small dark marks over the fretboard binding at the cutaway and there is a tiny scratch in the clearcoat on the back of the body. We have included close-up photos of these imperfections as well. Aside from what we have described, this instrument is in mint condition.

 

How Does It Play?

We have given this beautiful instrument a thorough pro setup to make sure it is playing to the absolute best of its potential. The string action measures just 5/64" on the low E at the 12th fret and 4/64" on the high E, without any buzz. We are consistently impressed with the Excel series semi-hollowbody guitars, and the USA-made Seymour Duncan ‘59 humbuckers are a perfect pairing to complement the depth and nuance of these instruments.

 

The D’Angelico Deluxe Hardshell case pictured is included.
