MODEL : EXDC-VS thinner body
Double-cutaway Series with StopEnd style
The D’Angelico EX-DC-VS unites jazz, blues, and rock.
With so many popular artists turning to the double-cutaway, semihollow, thinline guitar as their axe of choice in recent years, the EX-DC is a natural addition to the D’Angelico family of guitars. Equipped with Kent Armstrong pickups, the versatile EX-DC can go from warm and smooth one minute to bright and powerful the next. The center block, which runs through the EX-DC’s thinline design, creates unparalled sustain as well as a truly warm tone.

In addition to the EX-DC’s magnificent tonal properties, it’s also an extremely comfortable instrument. The standard neck shape and medium jumbo frets facilitate lightning fast runs and expressive note bending.
Hear the video-clip of EX-DC,As can be expected, the impeccably crafted EX-DC features world-renowned D’Angelico appointments including the distinctive headstock with a mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover. The beauty of the EX-DC’s laminated flame maple bookmatched carved top and back is accentuated by the mother-of-pearl square block inlays, five-ply binding, and a two-piece maple neck with walnut skunk stripe. Gold Grover Super Rotomatic stairstep tuners, gold Tune-o-matic bridge, and ebony knobs round out the EX-DC’s classic appointments. A deluxe hardshell case is included.

With its dual Kent Armstrong humbuckers and semi-hollow thin-body construction with inner centre block design suppress negative feedback on-stage, hence the EX-DC is built with versatility in mind. The EX-DC can span multiple musical genres from jazz to rock n roll without breaking a sweat.

John D’Angelico history
The D’Angelico story goes back to 1932, when founder John D’Angelico opened up his instrument shop in Manhattan’s lower east side after serving years as an apprentice to his violin and mandolin-maker uncle Ciani. He focused on constructing guitars similar to Gibson’s L5. By the time of his death in 1964 at age 59, D’Angelico had produced just fewer than 1,200 guitars, some finding their way into the hands of jazz players like Johnny Smith, Joe Pass, Kenny Burrell and Barney Kessel, etc. More recent musicians who’ve used them are Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins and Pete Townshend. D’Angelico’s works were honored at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011.
John D’Angelico built guitars by hand in his Manhattan shop from 1932 to 1964. John made his limited guitars became the legend guitars in years after he passed away, the guitars have its majestic tonal spectrum, one of a kind acoustic Jazz tones that most top players adore it.

The new era of D’Angelico guitars

Note : the re-establishment of D'Angelico brand were recently reviewed by the "Guitarist" magazine edition March 2014 & the "Vintage Guitar" gear-review edition March 2014.
Mr. Steve Pisani and mr. Brenden Cohen are determined to continue the brand’s tradition, since last year they make an interesting duo. The two co-owners with their heavy-weight experiences, recreated the old guitar designs by allowing the originals to be subjected to X-rays and MRIs (metal parts removed, of course) so luthiers could better understand their construction. They set up the arch-top factory for standard models while establishing a small-run custom workshop in California for their top of the line models. The new era of D’Angelico is just starting in this modern time available at reasonable prices range.

Review: D'Angelico EX-DC Semihollow Guitar

Guitar World Magazine
The name D’Angelico is spoken in reverence, like the names of artistic masters such as Michelangelo, da Vinci and Stradivari. Luthier John D’Angelico and his apprentice, James D’Aquisto, made only 1,164 D’Angelico archtop guitars, and today original D’Angelico guitars command impressive prices on the vintage market.
John D’Angelico died in 1964, but during the late Eighties a Japanese company started to build new D’Angelico guitars in limited numbers, with meticulous attention to detail.
In addition to offering USA Masterbuilt reissues of original D’Angelico models, made in limited amounts by luthier Gene Baker, D’Angelico recently introduced a new line of affordable Standard Series guitars, which consist of an archtop hollowbody, a chambered solidbody and two semihollow models, including the double-cutaway EX-DC.

Features
Although the EX-DC (Excel Double Cutaway) isn’t made by a little Italian-American man on New York’s Lower East Side, it offers attention to detail, craftsmanship, playability and aesthetics that are significantly better than most mass-produced guitars, especially in its price range. The EX-DC is a new model based on the classic double-cutaway semihollow design, featuring a laminated flame maple top and back surrounded by five-ply binding, a three-piece maple neck with a walnut center strip, a rosewood fretboard with large mother-of-pearl block inlays, and the ornate, signature D’Angelico headstock with Grover Super Rotomatic “stairstep” tuners. The stairstep motif is repeated in the beveled, mirror-polished truss-rod cover and pickguard shape, which are original D’Angelico trademarks, as well as the etched, art deco, three-line pattern on the control knobs.

All of the EX-DC’s hardware is gold plated, including the Tune-o-matic bridge, the stop tailpiece, the Switchcraft output jack and the covers for the Kent Armstrong humbucking pickups. In classic style, the control configuration consists of individual volume and tone knobs for the neck and bridge pickups, along with a three-position pickup-selector switch. The neck has a 24 3/4–inch scale, a shallow C-shaped profile, and 22 medium frets with slightly squared-off crowns. My test example came with a gorgeous brilliant-white finish, but D’Angelico also offers the EX-DC with cherry, vintage sunburst, and natural finishes that show off the figuring of the flamed maple.

Performance
Even before it was plugged in, the EX-DC sounded crisp, full and resonant, with ample natural sustain—all the qualities that a good semihollow guitar should possess but which are often lacking in examples in the EX-DC’s price range. The sound gets even better when the EX-DC is plugged in. The Kent Armstrong pickups deliver rich midrange, articulate attack and outstanding bass and treble detail that retains definition even through a high-gain amp. Rolling down the tone controls for either pickup softens the attack while enhancing the vocal quality of the midrange, without the usual mud and murk produced by lesser-quality capacitors. An incredibly versatile instrument, the EX-DC offers a wide range of tones that will please guitarists who play styles like blues, jazz or even hard rock.

The neck profile is very comfortable, walking a tightrope between vintage heft and modern shred slenderness, with a feel that many players will find just right. Even though the frets have a slightly flat profile, which gives the fingerboard “fretless wonder” playability, the intonation is impressive up and down the neck. The classic double-cutaway body shape and heel, which curves away from the neck starting at the 17th fret, makes it easy to play all the way up to the 22nd fret. Best of all, the EX-DC—especially my white-finish example—is a very classy-looking ax that is as visually appealing as it is sonically.

Cheat Sheet
A pair of Kent Armstrong humbucking pickups and high-quality electronic components deliver a wide range of rich, soulful tones ideal for blues, jazz and hard rock. Gold-plated hardware, five-ply binding and art deco aesthetics—particularly the classic D’Angelico headstock design—give the EX-DC the classy looks of a high-end guitar.

The Bottom Line
With its alluring combination of state-of-the-art electronics, classic D’Angelico styling, and the timeless, versatile appeal of a semihollow double-cutaway, the EX-DC is a worthy descendent of the D’Angelico namesake
