Rating and Reviews: D'Angelico EX-59 Deluxe

Custom-designed for the EX-59 Deluxe, Seymour Duncan DA-90 pickups impart this stately hollowbody guitar with a midrange bite when strummed hard.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: Very resonant with a minimal matte finish that adds to the sound qualities (I believe).Awesome for those full velvety jazz chords but with the P90s and a touch of the tone knob, a sparkly twang. Through a Fender Twin Reverb, this guitar sings. Attack the strings a bit harder and get plenty of rockabilly attitude. Hit a bit of boost and get some Pete Townsend power chords. Very responsive and dynamic to the touch! Feature: The pickups are great! Plenty of bite and articulation. The hardware adds to the whole vibe from the trapeze tailpiece to the art deco Grover tuning machines. No problems getting it in tune and staying in tune. Ease of Use: Extremely playable. Arrived set up. Easy to change strings. I tweaked the truss rod slightly with no issues. It is plug and play! Quality: This guitar is impeccable. Solid construction. No weird vibrations or rattles. The headstock is absolutely gorgeous and the detail of the binding is perfect all the way into the neck joint! It is custom quality at more than half the price. Name brand Grover tuners. This guitar is a lifer. Value: Of course I used the coupon I had! The price is a bit higher than some of the other import guitars, but none had the same class and quality in my opinion. When considering some of the cheaper options, I figured eventually I would be throwing money away on getting two mediocre guitars that I would grow tired of. Definitely a better investment in my opinion! Manufacturer Support: I didn't have any reason to contact D'Angelico directly. But i did check their website and found everything I needed to know. The Wow Factor: There aren't too many guitars in this price range that have this much Wow Factor. I think D'Angelico has cornered the market on Wow Factor! A good look up close and you will know what I mean. Then play it... and you will have that poetic grin on your face. Overall: Always been a fan of D'Angelico but never had the opportunity to play one. Wanted to get a big body jazz box but something more versatile. I came across the EX59 with P90s. I didn't have a guitar with P90s but wanted one as well so figured this would fit the bill. Couldn't really justify having a custom one built and I had a coupon for the holidays, so I am the proud owner of a D'Angelico EX-59!!
