The D'Angelico EXL-1A Hollow Body Electric Guitar lets you experience the timeless traditions of jazz music. This guitar has a hollow body construction with a spruce top and maple back. It delivers a bright sound with tight lows. This guitar has a rosewood fretboard that counter balances the bright tone of maple with its warm resonance. The laminated neck is comprised of maple with two walnut stripes. This generates a well balanced tone with bright highs, warm mids and low-mids. The powerful piezo pickup is positioned on the neck that ensures maximum output from each string. This guitar features the iconic D'Angelico stairstep tailpiece that provide great intonation, sustain and stability. The gold-plated machine heads and mother of pearl inlays enhance the overall appearance of the guitar.
