Review: D’Angelico Excel SS

The updated Excel SS is a thinline, single-cut archtop with a silhouette not a million miles away from an Ibanez George Benson or Gibson Howard Roberts.
The Excel SS comes loaded with a pair of Seymour Duncan ’59 humbuckers, which can be coil-split via push/pull tone knobs.
While its pedigree would suggest an instrument purely for jazz lovers, the Excel SS is capable of much more.
