D'Angelico has unveiled three new models for 2021, the Excel 59, Premier Bedford HS, and Deluxe Brighton.
You can read more about all three of the easy-on-the-eye models below.
Based on a John D'Angelico-designed model from 1959, the Excel 59 is built with a fully hollow body – made of laminated flame maple for the back and sides and laminated spruce for the top – paired with an ebony fingerboard.
Sonics come by way of the guitar's two D'Angelico-exclusive custom Seymour Duncan Great Dane P90s, with single volume and tone controls and a three-way "chickenhead" pickup selector.
Other features on the Excel 59 include Grover Imperial tuners and a D'Angelico Stairstep tailpiece.
The D'Angelico Excel 59 is available now – in Vintage Natural, Black Dog, and Viola finishes – for $1,999.
Premier Bedford SH
The Premier Bedford SH – previously only available as a Deluxe Limited Edition model – features a mahogany top, mahogany back and sides, a singular f-hole, and a maple scarf neck with a satin finish and a 24.75" scale length.
Sounds come by way of a pair of Seymour Duncan-designed TE-103 single-coils – in the neck and middle positions – and a Seymour Duncan-designed MH-102 mini-humbucker in the bridge, controlled by master volume and control knobs and a five-way blade switch. A six-point tremolo also comes standard on the guitar.
The D'Angelico Premier Bedford SH is available now – in Sky Blue, Black Flake, and Oxblood finishes – for $799.
Boasting a double-cutaway swamp ash body, the Deluxe Brighton is outfitted with a flamed maple top, and a satin-finished three-piece neck with a C-shape profile and ebony fretboard with a 24.75" scale-length.
Sound-wise, the Deluxe Brighton packs a pair of USA Seymour Duncan Seth Lover A4 pickups, controlled by two volume controls, two coil-splitting tone knobs, and a three-way toggle switch.
The D'Angelico Deluxe Brighton is available now – in Vintage Sunburst, Mate Walnut, and Desert Gold finishes – for $1,499.
