D'Angelico's flagship archtop—now available in the Premier Series. Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1's balanced, organic tone captures the unmistakable sound of a New York jazz box. Couple that with signature D'Angelico features in the Stairstep tailpiece and iconic headstock, the EXL-1 embodies elegance. Its single floating mini-humbucker highlights its naturally punchy mids and warm acoustic edge. Designed for jazzers at every turn, the Premier EXL-1 is the finest archtop in its class. Now available in Ocean Turquoise, Fiesta Red, and Champagne.
