Deluxe Series

Deluxe EXL-1

Where to buy
Our homage to master-builder John D’Angelico’s original archtop design has been elevated. The Deluxe EXL-1's Seymour Duncan floating humbucker guarantees every last drop of tone, while Jescar fretwire makes for greater playability. Its large 17-inch-wide body is complemented with a slim C-shape neck. Available in all-new custom finishes, the Deluxe EXL-1 exudes elegance, both embodying the spirit of its mid-century counterpart and asserting itself as a modern guitar for the modern player.
