D’Angelico’s flagship archtop returns in the all-new Premier Series. Crafted from John D’Angelico’s original design, the Premier EXL-1’s balanced, organic tone recalls the sound of a classic New York jazz box. Couple that with signature D’Angelico features in the Stairstep tailpiece, Skyscraper truss rod cover, and iconic headstock, the EXL-1 embodies elegance. Its single floating mini-humbucker highlights its naturally punchy mids and warm acoustic edge. Designed for jazz players worldwide, the Premier EXL-1 is a staple.
D’Angelico’s custom mini-humbucker is built for organic archtop tone, designed to pair exceptionally with the Premier EXL-1.
A classic cream binding lines the Premier Series for a traditional, vintage look.
All models are strung with Electrozinc, co-designed by D’Angelico and D’Addario, guaranteeing exceptional longevity and tone.
