Remarkable Versatility, Semi-hollow Sweetness

The Excel DC is a standout double-cutaway semi-hollow offering classic tones and modern versatility. With deep, comfortable cutaways and a slim C-shape neck profile offsetting its 16-inch-wide body shape, the Excel DC's playability is remarkable. Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers provide an impressive tonal range of vintage-voiced warmth to glassy high-end, while its center block fights off feedback at high volumes. Now featuring a rosewood fingerboard, Jescar 47104 fretwire, and vintage-inspired Grover Imperial tuners. Now available in Vintage Natural, Viola, and Black Dog.
