Offered as an alternative to our 17-inch models, the brand new EX-DH embodies D’Angelico’s legendary archtop craftsmanship while providing extra comfort with its smaller body. It promises flawless clarity and tonal balance. Want to control a room? Go to the neck pickup and dig in. Dual Kent Armstrong humbuckers provide power and smoothness, allowing the EX-DH to create a bed of sound for itself. Boasting all of D’Angelico’s signature features, the EX-DH’s exceptional sound is complemented by a stairstep tailpiece and pickguard, Grover Super Rotomatic tuners and mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays.
The EX-SD boasts classic D’Angelico beauty while offering ultra-thick rock tones. Powered by dual Kent Armstrong humbuckers, the EX-SD proves D’Angelico is long past its jazz-only days. Throw some overdrive on and the bridge pickup position offers endless sustain, while the neck pickup provides a searing high end. Kept clean, the EX-SD sounds glossy and full. Its single cutaway and slim-taper neck are built for solos, while medium jumbo frets make for dead accurate bends. The EX-SD is everything you’d expect from a high-quality solidbody and more.
The EX-SS packs a lot of punch in its 15-inch body, the smallest of all the D’Angelico archtops. Truly a versatile instrument, the EX-SS boasts a rich, full-bodied low-end when on the neck pickup, and a powerful mid-range on the bridge pickup. High-output Kent Armstrong humbuckers deliver crisp attack and balanced resonance, making the EX-SS perfect for live settings. The signature D’Angelico stairstep trapeze-style tailpiece offers style and purpose, providing comfortable string tension for bluesy bends. The EX-SS shines when kept clean or boosted with overdrive, ideal for R&B, jazz, rock, and all the nameless places in between.
The EX-DC is D’Angelico’s response to the rising popularity of the double-cutaway semi-hollow electric guitar. Powered by dual Kent Armstrong humbuckers, the EX-DC was designed with versatility in mind, offering a marriage of enveloping fullness and vivid high-end that never gets tinny. Its heavier body is balanced wonderfully by the signature D’Angelico headstock, while its standard neck shape and medium jumbo frets make for great comfort. Never short on style, the EX-DC is also available with a gold stairstep tailpiece and comes in a variety of colors, including a striking seafoam green.
