Notify me when back in stock


The all-new Excel 59 is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. The 59's 16-inch-wide, 1.75-inch-deep, fully hollow body paired with an ebony fingerboard offers woody tone and crisp articulation. It features custom Seymour Duncan Great Dane P90s, exclusive to D'Angelico, offering a massive range of tones—from warm and wooly to big and brash. All paired with vintage-inspired details like a chickenhead selector and cupcake knobs, the 59 feels timeless. Available in Vintage Natural, Viola, and Black Dog with a D'Angelico Shield Tremolo. Great Dane P90s Custom-made D'Angelico Great Dane P90s by Seymour Duncan are based on earlier dog-ear P90s from the 1940s and offer vivid tones ranging from warm and woody to bold and brash. Ebony Fingerboard With a bright edge for greater articulation and smooth sustain, an ebony fingerboard graces the Excel 59. Featuring a modern radius and medium jumbo fretwire from Jescar for unparalleled tone and control. Vintage Aesthetics Vintage-inspired details like a chickenhead pickup selector and cupcake knobs lend a classic look and feel to the Excel 59. Modernized Design Today, the Excel 59 has been modernized with a thinner but still fully hollow design and a slightly more compact, 16-inch-wide body for exceptional versatility and control—all while still offering organic archtop tone.
