A MODERN SPIN ON A JOHN D'ANGELICO ORIGINAL:
The all-new Excel 59 is an old-school gem and modern spin on a John D'Angelico original designed in 1959. 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. Now available in Vintage Natural, Viola, Black Dog, Solid Black, and Trans Cherry.
A MODERN SPIN:
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 GREAT DANE P90S:
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.
Vintage-inspired details like a chickenhead pickup selector and cupcake knobs lend a classic look and feel to the Excel 59.
