Excel Series

Excel Style B

Originally drafted in John D’Angelico’s notebook in 1936, the Style B is a standout in our archtop collection. A signature “Style B” logo on the pickguard and beautifully detailed headstock design create its classic look, impossible to mistake for another. With a slightly smaller body and neck profile, the Style B is an exceptionally light, well-balanced archtop. It has the scrape and slap of an acoustic but the power and tone variety of an electric hollow-body, largely due to its floating pickup design.
