Classic magic revitalized.
Our homage to master-builder John D’Angelico’s original archtop design, the EXL-1 is a legendary instrument.
Its floating pickup design produces vibrant resonance, easily handling both rich, smoky comp chords and intricate lead lines.
The EXL-1 exudes elegance, with a laminated spruce top, maple back, and signature stairstep tailpiece, pickguard and tuners.
Capturing the spirit of its mid-century counterpart, it is unmatched in quality, playability and style, all offered at an attractive price.
The EXL-1 humbly accepts the title given to it by so many jazz players: their “dream guitar.”
