D'Angelico Deluxe EXL-1 w/ Case - Matte Plum
The D'angelico guitar company began with one man- John D'angelico, who founded the company in 1932 in Little Italy, Manhattan. At it's peak in the late 1930's D'angelico was known as the premier archtop builder. After John passed away the company lied dormant for years before three men-Brenden Cohen, John Ferolito Jr., and Steve Pisani- bought the company name in 1999. The new owners began with only a few reissues of original D'angelico guitars, the company soon took off and began experimenting with new designs. Some notable players for the company include Bob Weir, Chet Atkins, and Susan Tedeschi.
An ideal choice for jazz aficionados, or players looking for new ground in the world of clean, rich, dynamic tone. In the elusive Matte Midnight finish, with gold hardware the Deluxe EXL-1 presents itself as a classy, beautiful instrument. A floating Seymour Duncan pickup ensures an unadulterated, pure tone. This guitar is comfortable to play and projects a sophisticated voice guaranteed to satisfy the ears of any audience.
