The Excel SS has earned its place as a modern standout. A 15-inch-wide single-cutaway archtop, the SS is lightweight, punchy, and versatile. High-output Kent Armstrong humbuckers make for crisp attack and remarkable resonance, while a slim C-shape neck profile offers maximum comfort. Revered by players from Bob Weir to Kurt Rosenwinkel, the SS is no stranger to stages. Now available with both our signature D’Angelico Stairstep trapeze-style tailpiece or a traditional stop tailpiece with full center block.
