Excellent Jazz Guitar
Product Rating

Product Review

I recently purchased a D'Angelico EXL-1 guitar from American Musical Supply. I utilized the AMS Chat option and spoke with sales specialist Ben. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable about the guitar and efficient in taking my order. The D'Angelico EXL-1 is an affordable re-issue copy of the famous jazz guitars built by John D'Angelico. The guitar is a acoustic hollow body archtop with a floating humbucker pickup attached to the pickguard not cut into the body. This allows the top to vibrate freely so when you play it as an acoustic it sounds fine. When plugged into the amp you get the warm jazz sounds and a touch of acoustic mixed in. The top is laminated spruce and the back and sides are laminated maple. The frets on the ebony fingerboard are not too narrow thus allowing for ease in playing jazz style chords. So if you want great jazz guitar without paying sky high prices this is the one for you.I am recommending this guitar an AMS to my students and fellow musicians.

Best Jazz Guitar I've Owned

Product Review

At this price, you cannot get a better jazz guitar. Period. Amazing sustain, tone, build quality, and electronics. The first time I saw this guitar was at a Russell Malone set at the Blue Note. He plays the excel model! I was immediately sold. If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me. With this sound, it's become my go-to guitar for all things jazz.

DeAngelico Pays Attention to Details!!

Product Review

For an affordable hollow body that pays attention to details in build quality, craftsmanship and overall great feel, you will not go wrong ordering the Dangelico EXL 1. I honestly impressed that it played well out of box and only needed a few minor adjustments.I even brought the guitar to my friend who owns a local music shop and he was happy to give the guitar a thumbs up!! I also recommend AMS- this is my first time ordering from them and they helped me out ad there was a slight glitch in there online order form. They assisted me in re-ordering the guitar and ensuring me timely updates on shipping. All in all, it has turned out to be a great guitar and a good customer experience!

Great Guitar!

Product Review

I found the tone and playability on this guitar all that I’d hoped for. It needed a little adjustment on the action, but considering it was shipped in very cold weather that’s no surprise. Fit and finish is excellent. Action is too.

Amazing. Everything I hoped for.

Product Review

Incredible guitar that gives you that classic New York jazz tone that embodies and original D'Angelico Excel. My teacher growing up owned an original hand made D'Angelico, and this guitar really does it justice as the specs of this guitar are directly modeled from John's original designs. I use this regularly for my jazz gigs-- especially when I perform with vocalists..

This is a great guitar

Product Review

I have been playing guitar 50+years, and have owned and played many fine guitars. This D'Angelico ranks right up there with any of the best that I have played. I purchased this guitar after playing a blue burst model at a local shop and was so impressed with the feel and tone. I wanted the Blonde model that the local shop didn't have. AMS had the guitar in stock , so I bought it sight unseen and crossed my fingers that it would be as good as the one I had played. The guitar arrived and I can tell you it was every bit as good as the first one and the attention to detail perfect. I took a couple of hours to change the the strings to my favorites and lowered the the action just a bit at the bridge and nut and it was perfect. intonation right on and no dead notes. If all the guitars D'Angelico are making are as good as this then all I can say is Great Work.

Nice guitar!

Product Review

When I opened the case I was met with the great smell of new varnish. It's a beauty and the case is very nice. The blue is more saturated than the pictures online. The workmanship is wonderful and it sounds great. The only thing I would recommend is make sure you have new strings because it came with heavy gauge wound strings that squeak and are not very friendly for the jazz sound this guitar is made for.

Just Extraordinary!

Product Review

I've been playing for over fifty years and owned many fine instruments. None, not even very pricey American ones, has been equal to the D'Angelico. Build quality is superb. It has a wonderful neck. A gorgeous finish. Fine classic jazz sound, either acoustic or plugged in. Even things like the provided case are a notch above what we commonly see today. The set-up was fine out of the box. Intonation was right on. I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with this instrument!
