D'Angelico Excel '59 Black Dog with a D'Angelico Shield Tremolo. Photos can not truly show how good the Black Dog finish is!

The all-new Excel 59 is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. The Excel series is Korean built - don't confuse these with the cheaper Indonesian built models, this is a whole new level, and the quality is superb. Korea has a long history of excellent hollow-body builders, and the quality here will not disappoint.

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. 

Reimagined for the modern player, the Excel 59 features a shallower but still fully hollow body depth and slightly more compact, 16-inch-wide body for tonal versatility and control—all while still offering organic archtop tone.

An ebony fingerboard assists in the woody, articulate tone of the 59, while a modern radius and medium jumbo fretwire from Jescar offer unparalleled tone and control.

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.

Supplied with a quality D'Angelico hard case.
