The EX-SS Single Cutaway Semi-Hollowbody Left-Handed Electric Guitar offers exceptional tone, playability and versatility along with an elegant aesthetic that is unmistakably D'Angelico.

The D'Angelico EX-SS is a versatile, performance-ready archtop that is sure to satisfy whether you play hard rock, blues or smooth jazz. The laminated flame maple semi-hollowbody offers all the full-bodied, rich D'Angelico sound in a lightweight, more compact and exceptionally comfortably 15" single cutaway body. The EX-SS is also incredibly roadworthy, in fact, Hanan Rubinstein (guitarist for Alicia Keys, among others) has toured the world and conquered thousands of demanding concert situations with his trusty EX-SS natural. The 3-piece maple neck is carved into a comfortable, slim profile and features a walnut skunk stripe and a 1-11/16" nut width. Topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the EX-SS provides effortless playability from the first fret to the last.

Outfitted with a pair of high-output Kent Armstrong humbuckers, the D'Angelico EX-SS will dish out whatever you need—from crystal clean jazz to heavily-overdriven rock or blues and everything in between. Routed through a 3-way pickup selector toggle, each pickup also features independent volume and tone controls.

With elegant appointments that remain true to the timeless D'Angelico tradition, the EX-SS bears gold-plated hardware, a distinctive D'Angelico headstock with a striking mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover, a signature stairstep trapeze-style tailpiece and pickguard, mother-of-pearl square block inlays, ebony knobs and classy Gold Grover Super Rotomatic strairstep tuning machines. The D'Angelico EX-SS Single Cutaway Semi-Hollowbody Left-Handed Electric Guitar comes with the full protection of a deluxe hardshell case.

Comments about D'Angelico EX-SS Single Cutaway Semi-Hollowbody Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

I have a lot of left handed electric guitars: Fenders, Gibsons, Gretsches, St. Blues, Epiphones, a Hofner and some odds and ends. I always look for something warm and clean and playable. I really liked the looks of this guitar and since I play a lefty, they had to order it and it only took a few days to get here. All I can say is, If you think of a Strat as 'a shot and a beer' in a blues house on the south side of Chicago, The D'Angelico EX-SS is a glass of bourbon on a rainy night in Georgia! The Kent Armstrong pickups on this 15" hollow body produce one of the warmest, cleanest sounds of any guitar I've ever played through a tweed! The fit and finish are second to none. (I love the polished aluminum truss rod cover in the shape of a NY sky scraper!) Probably not the best choice for a Buddy Guy or Howlin' Wolf gig but it would be right at home anywhere else. And I could write this a lot faster if I could only stop looking at it for a few minutes!
