Excel Series

Excel Brooklyn

No, it will not bum you a smoke. The brand new Brooklyn (SD-400) has a voice all its own. Its rich, dreadnought shout is propelled by a sapele back, sides, and a solid Sitka spruce top. The Brooklyn’s mahogany neck is capped with a rosewood fingerboard where block mother-of-pearl inlays add the class of a fresh pair of wingtips. Brass bridge pins help the Brooklyn sing by providing maximum resonance. Along with the rest of the D’Angelico acoustic family, the Brooklyn is amp-ready with the Fishman INK-4 onboard preamp and pickup system, complete with built-in tuner.
