June 20th, 2022 - New York City - D’Angelico guitars introduces the all-new Excel DC XT and Excel SS XT, top-selling models now available with new vintage-inspired details and high-end upgrades. Featuring stunning quilted maple tops in classic colors, a Throwback Scroll-Style headstock, and an array of elegant details, the all-new Excel SS XT and Excel DC XT join the popular Excel Series this summer, making their debut at Sweetwater’s Gearfest.
Both models feature the richly bound Throwback Scroll-Style headstock and a decadent laminated quilted maple top in two classic colors: Vintage Natural and Iced Tea Burst. They each have a comfortable slim C-shape neck profile, Seymour Duncan 59 humbuckers, premium Jescar 47104 fretwire, vintage-inspired Grover Imperial Tuners, and a rosewood fingerboard.
The Excel DC XT is a 16-inch-wide double-cutaway with remarkable tonal range from vintage-voiced warmth to glassy high-end, while its centerblock easily fights off feedback at high volumes. Its single-cutaway counterpart, the Excel SS XT is only 15 inches wide and is designed to offer jazzy warmth yet remarkable genre versatility, depending on rig pairing.
