D'Angelico Approved

Luthier John D'Angelico was one of the most sought-after designers of semi-hollowbody and archtop guitars. Though the company has gone through different owners and management over the years, the same standard of smooth playability and warm tone come through with the D'Angelico Standard Series guitars. Your D'Angelico EXDC Semi-Hollowbody electric guitar sports classy looks and a powerful sound that's great for jazz, blues, and rock.

Bright-Sounding Maple Body

If you like a bright tone full of energy, then you'll love this guitar's maple top and back. As a guitar tonewood, maple yields a rounded brightness that cuts through nicely. An attractive double-cutaway contour boasts a cool look that also grants your fingers unfettered access to those higher frets. This semi-hollow body rests comfortably against your front, and won't weigh you down if you like to move around while you play.

Maple and Walnut Neck

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned several semi-hollow bodies and this just blew me away. Workmanship is impeccable, out of the box sweet, and extremely playable. I took it into the best handmade guitar shop in Minneapolis for a setup and they even said wow. Don't let the Korean made part dampen you any. My Gretsch doesn't come close in tone and sound output. And frankly - this is just about the most gorgeous looking guitar I have ever seen - the pictures do it no justice whatsoever. And zZounds was super to work with. This was the first time I have ordered a guitar online, but I had spent months searching for and playing D'Angelico's locally so I knew I had to eventually have one of these. The payment plan from zZounds made that possible sooner and the speed and care they took in getting this to me was great. Know semi-hollows aren't for everyone, but if they have a place in your player heart, this one you have got to have.

Musical Background:

Been playing for about 8 years. Currently own a Martin, Taylor, G & L, and Gretsch. Play for my own entertainment mostly.

Musical Style:

Classic rock, blues
