D'Angelico DAESSTSLBSNS Excel SS Tour Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar - Slate Blue DAESSTSLBSNS


Notify me when back in stock



D'Angelico’s Excel SS Tour strips away a layer of the brand’s iconic bling, only to reveal a rock-solid performing instrument underneath! This single-cut semi-hollowbody’s laminated maple body sports dual Supro Bolt Bucker humbuckers, packed to the brim with both warmth and clarity to cover all ends of the sonic spectrum. Next, the 3-piece maple/walnut neck is all but impervious to the rigors of the road and remains straight and true in even the most challenging of environments. But how does it play? Thanks to the ebony fingerboard's 12-inch radius, medium jumbo frets, and the comfortable “C” neck profile, the Excel SS Tour is a champion of playability, providing smooth bends and a slick, fast feel up and down the neck.Lastly, while the D’Angelico Excel SS Tour is a stripped-back 6-string, it’s still a stripped-back D’Angelico; gorgeous 3-ply neck binding, 5-ply body binding, and a tamer take on the standard D’Angelico art-deco headstock rein in the extravagance without sacrificing the brand’s iconic elegance.

Sturdy 3-piece laminate neck

A sturdy neck is key to any touring musician’s 6-string, and it doesn’t get much sturdier than this D’Angelico’s 3-piece set-through design. Two pieces of rock-hard maple are laminated together with a stripe of walnut in the middle for incredible structural stability, ensuring your neck remains unphased from the onslaught of stage lights, temperature changes, and day-to-day use. All together, the dark ebony fingerboard, the 22 medium-jumbo frets, the 12-inch fingerboard radius, and the pleasing “C” profile provide wide-ranging playability ready to tackle any style.

Thunderous Supro Bolt humbuckers

This Excel Tour series instrument comes loaded with a pair of Supro Bolt Bucker pickups for a touch of raw power to complement its D’Angelico elegance! These humbucking pickups boast warm, rich tone with a surprising level of sonic clarity and detail, allowing guitarists to swap between raunchy garage rock crunch and jazzy cleans with the flick of a knob. Finally, true to the no-nonsense philosophy of the Excel Tour series, this guitar forgoes the traditional 4-knob setup for a far more stage-friendly 2-knob volume and tone control scheme — a superior setup when making quick on-the-fly adjustments.

D'Angelico: a history of guitar accolades

After mastering his craft during an 18-year apprenticeship, luthier John D’Angelico opened his own shop in Manhattan’s Little Italy in 1932. Catering to New York’s many jazz musicians over the ensuing three decades, D’Angelico and a single apprentice became New York’s foremost stringed instrument builders, creating over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John’s death in 1964. Following his passing, D’Angelico’s legacy lived on only through his rare, legendary instruments. After decades, the D’Angelico brand has resurfaced, bringing back the playability and attention to detail of the company’s New York roots. D’Angelico uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the finest available materials to create playable works of art for today’s guitarist. From a modest shop in Little Italy to the world stage, D’Angelico’s dedication to quality craftsmanship ensures that this brand won’t be going dormant again any time soon.
