The EX-175 is the race car of D’Angelico guitars. The awe-inspiring archtop, created for players seeking the D’Angelico experience with a rock ’n’ roll edge, is the only D’Angelico archtop equipped with a Bigsby vibrato. Explore your creative side to conjure up everything from subtle shimmers to delirious dive bombs. The roller bridge offers stable tuning for hassle-free operation.
With its Kent Armstrong humbuckers, the EX-175 is incredibly dynamic. It responds immediately to your playing— the harder you strum, the more pop you get. Dig in hard and you’ll be rewarded with a loud throaty growl. Don’t be afraid to crank this bad boy. The EX-175 is incredibly resilient to feedback and can be pushed harder than other archtops.
Staying true to the D’Angelico legacy, the EX-175 exudes elegance. The distinctive headstock with a mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover, mother-of-pearl square block inlays, carved top and back, seven-ply bound body stairstep pickguard, brushed chrome hardware, chrome Grover Super Rotomatic stairstep tuners, and ebony knobs add that timeless D’Angelico touch. A deluxe hardshell case is included.
In addition to its sexy stylings, the EX-175 offers amazing playability. Its ultra-slim taper neck makes super fast single-note runs a breeze. Whether your style encompasses blazing bebop, rockabilly romps, or countrified chords, the retro-styled EX-175 will take your playing to places you never imagined possible.
