The D'Angelico EXL-1 BB Hollow Body Electric Guitar is a dream for jazz guitarists. Its body design is inspired from the 1930's when Jazz music was at its epitome. The body is comprised of a laminated spruce top and laminated maple back that generates a bright and precise tone with tight lows. This guitar has a maple neck with walnut centre that supports the bright tone of the rosewood fretboard with its warm mellow sound. The Kent Armstrong floating pickup catches vibration created by the strings precisely and transfers them to the satin stain rosewood bridge. This guitar has a stairstep pickguard that retains the shiny finish of the guitar even after months of usage. The gold plated hardware parts and mother of pearl inlays grant a luxurious look to the overall design.
