Re-designed for 2018, the Excel DC is a standout double-cutaway semi-hollow boasting exceptional versatility. And with deep, comfortable cutaways, a 16-inch-wide body, and a slim C-shape neck profile, the DC's playability is remarkable. Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers offer an impressive tonal range of full-bodied warmth to cutting high-end, while its center block fights off feedback at high volumes. Now featuring push/pull tone knobs for snappy coil-tapped tones, the Excel DC's tonal versatility extends further than ever before.
