Woody Tone and Throwback Swag

Back by popular demand and reimagined for the first time since its debut, the Excel Style B Throwback is a slimmed down non-cutaway archtop and time machine to the Jazz Age. A slim-C neck profile, shallow upper bout depth, and 25-inch scale length make the Style B Throwback a notably comfortable archtop while still maintaining robust acoustic tone. Old-school details and Throwback Collection appointments—including the scroll-style headstock designed by John D'Angelico in the 30s—make the Style B a visual stunner. Available in Vintage Natural and Viola.

A Time Machine

Excel Style B Throwback is a slimmed down non-cutaway archtop and time machine to the Jazz Age.

VINTAGE DETAILS

Matching the new Throwback Collection scroll-style headstock, a satin-finished macassar ebony pickguard adds comfort, style, and old-school swag.

Throwback F-Holes

Further aiding in the “woody” tone of the archtops found in the Throwback Collection, throwback-style f-holes are more contoured and slightly wider, emanating more tone and offering greater projection.

THROWBACK SCROLL-STYLE HEADSTOCK

Designed by John D’Angelico in the 1940s, the new Throwback Scroll-style headstock design offers a more minimalistic, contemporary take on the opulent D’Angelico headstock design.
