A throwback to a time defined by its style, the Excel 59 was originally designed by John D'Angelico in 1959.

Returning as a modern option for a vast range of players, the 59 is a 17-inch-wide archtop equipped with P-90s -- ideal for indie rock, jazz with a bite, and every inventive style in between.

Featuring retro cream knobs, a chicken-head rotary pickup selector, and D'Angelico's signature Stairstep tailpiece, the 59 is incomparable in vibe.
