Wow! Just Wow! John D’Angelico’s original archtop design is legend, and the EXL-1 is its modern-day counterpart. True to the original in every detail, the EXL-1 features a USA-made Seymour Duncan Johnny Smith Floating Mini-Humbucker to maximize the acoustic tone of its commanding 17-inch-wide, 3-inch-deep body.

Art Deco-inspired details frame the EXL-1—with a scroll-style neck bevel, mother-of-pearl inlays on an ebony bridge, and split-block inlays on a pau ferro fingerboard.

Split-Block Inlays

Mother-of-Pearl split-block inlays indulge in Art Deco decadence—a small but impactful aesthetic detail.

Fingerboard Scroll Bevel

An aesthetic nod to original D'Angelico Art Deco decadence, an elegant scroll-style bevel adorns the end of the EXL-1's fingerboard.

Mother-of-Pearl Bridge Inlays

Referencing a number of John D'Angelico's original archtop designs, two subtle mother-of-pearl inlays dress up the EXL-1's ebony bridge.
