 D'Angelico Excel SS, gloss natural, made in Korea 2015. D'Angelico are based in New York and have been making gorgeous hollow and semi-hollow electrics for many decades now. We got this from a local customer who imported it all the way from Russia a few years back... it gives you an idea how tricky they are to find in Australia. It's a very striking item: all that flame maple, gold art deco hardware, the wild headstock... dang, it's gorgeous. The neck is slim and quick and the thinline body is light and responsive, so it feels lively and agreeable in the hands. The top and back have a pronounced arch to them, which adds volume to the dimensions without needing to be full depth, which translates to a full and warm tone you might expect from a deeper body. The neck pickup is clear and rich with great articulation. The bridge pickup is surprisingly fun with a dirty amp, but it cleans up beautifully too. This has turned a bunch of heads in the store already, and rightfully so.
