Looking for versatility in a performance archtop? Look no further. The D’Angelico EX-SS delivers the winning formula whether you play jazz, blues, rock, or fusion. Offering the richness of a full-bodied D’Angelico archtop in an exceptionally lightweight 15” body design, the compact EX-SS is amazingly comfortable to play for hours on end and also extremely roadworthy. Hanan Rubinstein (guitarist for Alicia Keys, among others) has toured the world and conquered thousands of demanding concert situations with his trusty EX-SS natural.
Armed with high-output Kent Armstrong humbucking pickups, the EX-SS delivers a crisp attack with balanced resonance and uncanny clarity across the length of the fretboard. Its unique violin-inspired post bracing design is lightweight yet can handle the most demanding performance environments. In addition to the EX-SS’s vibrant tonal properties, it also provides an exceedingly effortless playing experience. Its slim taper three-piece maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and walnut skunk stripe is so easy to play that lightning fast single-note runs will fly out from your fingers. The trapeze style tailpiece produces a comfortable string tension that makes blues bends a breeze.
Staying true to the D’Angelico legacy, the EX-SS exudes elegance. The distinctive headstock with a mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover, signature stairstep pickguard and tailpiece, mother-of-pearl square block inlays, bookmatched laminated carved maple top and back, ebony knobs, Gold Grover Super Rotomatic stairstep tuners, and gold-plated hardware add that timeless D’Angelico touch. A deluxe hardshell case is included.
The EX-SS is the perfect archtop addition for any guitar player’s collection.
