D'Angelico Excel Bowery Dread Acoustic-electric Guitar - Vintage Natural

Product Description:

The D’Angelico Excel Bowery Dread acoustic-electric guitar gives other instruments of its kind a run for their money. Strum it with a pick or pluck it with your fingers, and you’ll discover tone that keeps on giving. These splendid sonics are thanks to an articulate Sitka spruce top in combination with mahogany back and sides with a thick midrange. The classic, favored dreadnought shape adds a booming projection behind its rich tonewood voice. Plus, an ebony fingerboard and a slim "C"-shape neck up playability, while the Bowery Dread's tonewoods find exceptional plugged-in sound through Fishman Sonitone electronics.

Classic tonewood combinations and a beloved body

You’ll be flying high in a cloud of bright and booming tonal qualities with the Excel Bowery. A classic body shape, the old-school dreadnought continues its seemingly never-ending legacy. The Excel Bowery Dread garbs this dreadnought shape with the trappings of all-solid Sitka spruce and mahogany, for a voice utterly complemented by shape and composition. These two tonewoods blend together to create a crisp, articulate attack and smooth sustain. Finally, a satin-finished slim "C"-shape neck and an ebony fingerboard make this a guitar you won’t want to take your hands off of.

Dial in natural sound when plugged in

Make no mistake: the D’Angelico Excel Bowery Dread packs six strings of acoustic power. But when plugged in, its Fishman Sonitone pickup does the talking. Players have convenient access to volume and tone controls mounted just beneath the soundhole and will benefit from dynamic, natural sound. Whether its acoustic jams or recording sessions, the Excel Bowery Dread proves its mettle with flare and poise.

D'Angelico: a history of acoustic accolades

After mastering his craft during an 18-year apprenticeship, luthier John D’Angelico opened his own shop in Manhattan’s Little Italy in 1932. Catering to New York’s many jazz musicians over the ensuing three decades, D’Angelico and a single apprentice became New York’s foremost stringed instrument builders, creating over one thousand treasured archtop guitars until John’s death in 1964. Following his passing, D’Angelico’s legacy lived on only through his rare, legendary instruments. After decades, the D’Angelico brand has resurfaced, bringing back the playability and attention to detail of the company’s New York roots.
