Deluxe Series

Deluxe 59

Originally designed by master-luthier John D’Angelico in 1959, the Deluxe 59 is a classic 17-inch-wide archtop but equipped with DA-90 pickups, co-designed with Seymour Duncan. Its larger body and signature over-sized headstock come together to create remarkable balance. A true replica of the original Excel 59, this reissue keeps the fifties flair, accentuated by the absence of a pickguard and complete with retro-vibe volume and tone knobs.
