D’Angelico’s Flagship Archtop Jazz Box in an Elegant Limited Lefty Edition!

D'Angelico's Left Handed Premier EXL-1 is the flagship D’Angelico archtop—now available in a lefty Premier Series edition. Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1's balanced, organic tone captures the unmistakable sound of a New York jazz box. The EXL-1 sports unmistakable D’Angelico features including the signature stairstep tailpiece and the iconic headstock, embodying D’Angelico’s classic elegance at a great price point.  

This classic lefty jazz box gets its rich tone from the combination of its resonant 3“ thick hollow body, featuring an arched spruce top with flame maple back and sides, and its single floating mini-humbucker pickup which flawlessly highlights its naturally punchy mids and warm acoustic edge. With its 3-piece maple neck with Rosewood fretboard with a 14“ radius and 25.5“ scale length, you will enjoy smooth and easy playability, while the classic rosewood bridge with stairstep trapeze tail piece and rotomatic stairstep tuning machines deliver warm tone and rock solid tuning through your entire set.
