Get Classy Looks and a Jazzy Sound With This D'Addario Archtop!

Your D'Angelico EXSS Semi-Hollow electric guitar harnesses that rich PAF tone with its single-cutaway maple body, two-piece maple neck with a walnut center, and full-sounding pair of Kent Armstrong humbuckers. Comfortable playability and warm jazzy tone are what this semi-hollowbody axe is all about. Its golden hardware, D'Angelico stairstep tailpiece, secure golden Tune-o-matic bridge, and stairstep pickguard give your EXSS a touch of flair that's a pleasure to look at.

PAF Sound from a Pair of Kent Armstrong Humbuckers

Your two Kent Armstrong humbucking pickups capture the warmth and full-bodied resonance from your EXSS guitar's semi-hollow body. You have two volume and two tone controls to get a versatile range of sound from these babies. You also have a three-setting pickup selector switch to allow you to choose the right pickup setting for your style of playing.

Maple Semi-hollow Body and Two-piece Maple/Walnut Neck

Maple is a sought-after tonewood for semi-hollow body guitars because of the tightness and clarity it brings to the table. Prized for its beauty, maple is also known to keep your lows tight, and help your highs and mids maintain a pleasing brightness. Your tone will cut through pleasantly without being overly aggressive or tinny. Your two-piece maple neck has a walnut center and plays like a dream. This appendage harnesses a close action and solid transfer of sound over to your EXSS's body.

Striking and Secure Stairstep Tailpiece and Tune-o-matic Bridge

Aside from playing like a breeze and projecting a nice warm tone, your D'Angelico EXSS sports an appealing "stairstep" tailpiece and secure Tune-o-matic bridge. These two pieces of hardware will keep your strings in tune over longer periods of time. Your Tune-o-matic bridge also provides your EXSS with a lovely lingering sustain.

D'Angelico EXSS Semi-Hollow Electric

With a pure jazz sound that can only come from its laminated flamed maple construction, the EX-SS will satisfy all the needs of the seasoned guitar player. Being nothing short of perfection from top to bottom, the EX-SS model ensures that the D'Angelico brand is back with no signs of slowing down.

The D'Angelico EX-SS features a semi-hollow 15.5" laminated flame maple body. Its small bridge block located under its tune-o-matic bridge give this guitar a big sound that belies its compact size and lightweight design. Dual Kent Armstrong Humbuckers lend versatility while its separate volume and tone controls and 3-way toggle switch give you total sonic control. Other highlights include a signature D'Angelico tailpiece, gold Grover Super Rotomatics, bone nut, Switchcraft input jack, and of course, the iconic D'Angelico headstock.

Experience D'Angelico reborn in their handcrafted reissues of classic D'Angelico arch tops, semi-hollows and solid bodies. They're built to uncompromising standards, featuring the spruce top, maple back, and stair-step pickguard and tailpiece that are quintessential D'Angelico. That's why they're the choice of a growing number of artists and among the fastest growing guitar brands. Experience history. Experience D'Angelico. Reborn.
Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "More than jazz"
Overall: A stunning guitar that turns heads and is a joy to play. Quality dinged 1 star for some very minor finish flaws (almost invisible except to the obsessive eye of love). Interaction with D'Angelico was great, as was purchase from zZounds (wouldn't be playing this guitar if it wasn't for their Play as You Pay plan). Details and bling are excellent, but the playablity and sound are what really count. Neck is a modified C profile, a little different from another EXSS I played before ordering this one - it was a pleasant surprise. Just played it before an audience last night for the first time - completely hassle-free and adaptable to house sound system, numerous comments from audience on quality of sound. A keeper (although if I can ever afford one of the new hand-made D'Angelicos, I'm there).

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "de-angeleco ex-ss"
Overall: Overall a nice jazz box for a good price. Sounds authentic, plays pretty good--I love the rhythm pickup--not in love with the treble pickup butit's ok. I only bought it play jazz. Better with flat wound strings. My only complaint with lower action -- Lots of buzzes. Tightened up loose hardware--switch-plate--pickguard plate-pickup covers-still the pickup selector switch causes buzzing on many notes. There is something inside the switch doing this--I will be calling zounds for repair/replacement of the switch. I often practice un-amplified so switch buzzing is annoying. I will be calling zounds to straighten this out. Otherwise am happy with the guitar and good deal for the money.
