The EXL-1 has been revived with all the quality expected from D’Angelico. This single-cutaway archtop features a signature D’Angelico stairstep tailpiece along with a floating pickup and hard maple neck. The EXL-1 is a pure classic reborn into the 21st century. Includes matching hardshell case.
The parallel histories of Jazz music and hollow-body electric guitars have been manifested in the Artstar. The influences of these legendary instruments are immediately apparent with bone nut, ebony fretboard, and Ibanez’s signature Super 58 custom pickups. The critical eye will appreciate the details like the smoothness of the fretboard and a skilled crimping technique generally found on instruments costing twice as much. The Artstar is a pure jazz-box that embodies the continual innovation that is Jazz.
A D’Angelico with P-90 pickups? Yes. Master luthier John D’Angelico built several instruments powered by fabulous P-90 pickups, and the EX-59 is a classic example of such a guitar. After unearthing an original 1959 sunburst D’Angelico, the reissue soon followed.
The EX-59 is the perfect companion to the traditional D’Angelico humbucking pickup-equipped archtop and offers that legendary D’Angelico warmth but with a unique edge. Its P-90 pickups provide just the right amount of bite to give your sound some attitude if you want to push it hard. It’s no surprise blues icon Robert Randolph has adopted the EX-59 as his guitar of choice.
Staying true to the D’Angelico legacy, the EX-59 exudes elegance. The distinctive headstock with a mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover, mother-of-pearl square block inlays, carved top and back, Gold Grover Super Rotomatic stairstep tuners, chicken-head three-way pickup position switch, and ’50s retro-vibe volume and tone knobs add that timeless D’Angelico touch. The EX-59’s gorgeous light faded cherry sunburst finish over its laminated flame maple top and back is accentuated by the absence of a pickguard—a design element carried over from the original. A deluxe hardshell case is included.
If you’re after the buttery sound of the blues or the smokey sounds of jazz, this is the guitar you’ve been waiting for. Whether plugged into a class A vintage combo amp or direct into your computer-based recording system, the EX-59 will remain true to its unique identity.
The EX-59 is a legacy rediscovered and reborn.
For a decade now, Ibanez has continued to energize the hollow-body segment with wide range of designs—with everything from rockin’ hybrids to straight-up jazz-boxes. The new Expressionist line begins yet another chapter in the Artcore story.
The Expressionist difference? Jazz fans will recognize the Ibanez original Super 58 custom pickups— the preferred pickup of George Benson, Pat Metheny and John Scofield on their own Signature models. A jazz favorite, yes, but as funk guitarist Eric Krasno has been proving, the Super 58s perform well in a variety of situations. Warm, balanced articulation, and excellent response characterize the Super 58 custom.
This very interesting L-7C has some gorgeous looks and unique appointments to match. The electronics are configured with a three-way rotary selector switch between two tone/volume circuits for the single pickup. We believe this to almost certainly be a one of a kind, factory custom-ordered L-7C.
Body: Maple top, back, and sides
Neck: Two-piece maple neck with 1 11/16" wide nut and Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays
Pickups/Hardware: One AlNiCo pickup in the neck position (rates at 8.2kOms), three-way rotary control selector, and tone and volume controls
Cosmetic Condition: The body has some very nice checking all over. There are various light scratches and areas of finish wear around teh edges of the top and on the back from buckle rash. Some sort of serial number has been embossed on the bass shoulder. The neck has some finish wear from play. The headstock has some checking on the face as well as a strip of binding missing from the bass corner area. The rest of the binding looks secure. This unique archtop has aged nicely.
Playability: The strings are at a medium-low height, play very well, and fret clearly all over.
Modifications: The face of the headstock looks like it may have been oversprayed at some point. The tailpiece has been replaced. A few cracks have been repaired around the output jack.
Weight: 6lbs 5oz
Case: Original hardshell
Neck: Mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard with split parallelogram inlays
Pickups/Hardware: Two single coil pickups, three-way pickup selector switch, independent volume and tone controls
Cosmetic Condition: For it's age, the body is in fantastic shape. As is expected with guitars this old, there is checking throughout the finish but it gives the guitar a great look. The body itself is very clean, with only some small dings and scratches near the tailpiece and on the cutaway. The sides have a few cracks in the finish but overall the body is structurally sound. The neck also has checking lines throughout but no major dings or scratches, just some moderate wear. The fretboard is clean and gorgeous and the headstock only has some dings along the sides. Overall, this is a fantastic vintage ES-295!
Playability: The strings are at a medium-low height, play like a dream, and fret clearly across the board.
Modifications: The pick guard has been replaced with a Gibson guard of the same era that was meant for 3-Pickup guitar. The Kluson tuners have been replaced with nickel as opposed to the original gold hardware. It seems the original owner was not fond of the gold hardware and may have rubbed most of it off. You can see remnants of it in the harder to reach areas of the guitar, such as the tuner grommets and the feet of the tailpiece. All electronics are original.
Weight: 6lbs 6oz
Case: Original hardshell
Body: Hollow maple
Neck: Mahogany neck with 1 11/16" wide nut and Brazilian rosewood fretboard with pearloid parallelogram inlays. This is almost certainly a special order from Gibson due to the split parallelogram inlays and humbuckers, which were not standard on this model.
Pickups/Hardware: Two humbuckers (the bridge position is a PAF, the neck is a patent # pickup), three-way pickup selector switch and independent tone and volume controls
Cosmetic Condition: The body and headstock both have some nice checking all over. The body is very clean, there's just a few very minor scratches and dings, mostly on the back and sides. The neck is very glossy and almost spotless. The headstock just has a couple of dings on the sides that run through the finish. This 225 is incredible!
Playability: The strings are at a medium-low height, play like a dream, and fret with little to no buzz.
Modifications: The binding is cracked on the neck in several places - most likely from an old refret. The neck heel has a wooden plug under the finish, probably from an old neck reset bolt. The neck has been refinished long ago. The potentiometers have been replaced by 1973 pots. The neck pickup may have originally been a PAF, and thus, possibly replaced.
Weight: 6lbs 3oz
Case: Original hardshell
The AG has a smaller body than the most of traditional full-hollow bodies. However, The AG has a lot of articulation and great playability that others don't have.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have just celebrated their Thirtieth Year together, and to commemorate the career of Mike Campbell, we have built a guitar that honors his career.
Very few guitar players have created a following and the respect among their fans and peers as much as Mike Campbell. Mike's incomparable style and songwriting over the years has left its mark in Rock & Roll History and Duesenberg has the privilege of being a part of it.
The appearance of the Mike Campbell Signature TV Guitar says it all, with its vintage Hot Rod style, along with our traditional Duesenberg tone, this Doozy will be hard to beat... "Buckle Up"
Some say it all started in Fullerton California, where Leo Fender built his first electric guitar. We have moved our US office to Downtown Fullerton... it seems the Mojo has returned...

Cosmetic Condition: The body has some dings and surface marks throughout it but is in nice shape for its age. The back and sides are a bit dinged up as well but there are no signs of structural damage. The neck has two filled in strap button holes on the heel and some thumbnail sized dents up and down the rest of it. The fretboard and frets look to be in good shape as well. The headstock has only a few marks around the edges. This is a great ES-175 with a lot of life left in it!
Playability: The strings are low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

This Gretsch is looking nice for its age!
Playability: The strings are low, play nicely, and ring out clearly across the board.
Modifications/Repairs: The zero fret has been replaced. Missing pickguard.
Weight: 8lbs 5oz
Case: Original hardshell with broken handle
The EXL-1 has been revived with all the quality expected from D’Angelico. This single cutaway archtop features a signature D’Angelico stairstep tailpiece along with a floating pickup and hard maple neck. The EXL-1 is a pure classic reborn into the 21st century. Deluxe hardshell case included.
Perhaps inspired by the radical spirit of the times as much as by the then-traditional, elegant looks of the LP goldtop, this 1968 ES-355 was ordered as a factory one-off in Gold Sparkle finish. As a unique piece of semi-hollow history, it is a stunning example.
The finish retains its golden hue, with only the slightest hint of greening that sometimes befalls such gold Gibson's as the ES-295 and even the LP goldtop. Underneath the pickguard, there’s one spot of heavy finish wear that goes down to the wood most likely caused by a chemical reaction from the original celluloid pickguard—otherwise, the guitar is very clean, with some moderate finish wear on the back of the neck but only minor wear elsewhere. The chrome hardware is beautifully intact. The neck pickup cover is nickel, but all other parts appear to be original.
The ES-355 was an upmarket development of the popular ES-335, complete with some cosmetic appointments similar to a Les Paul Custom, like five-ply binding around all body and headstock edges, the split-diamond peghead inlay, and block fingerboard inlays. The ES-355 was available with Varitone electronics and a Bigsby that make each example even more unique, but this customer apparently didn’t want these complications—just a very classy-looking tone machine.
Body: Laminate maple. One-off Gold Sparkle finish
Neck: One-piece mahogany neck with 1 9/16" wide nut and ebony fretboard.
Pickups/Hardware: Original chrome-covered patent Gibson humbuckers.
Cosmetic Condition: Clean overall with moderate play wear and one heavy wear spot under the pickguard. This is attributed to the chemical reaction with the old guard.
Modifications: The pickguard and neck pickup cover have been replaced.
Introduced in 2014, the EX-175 is the race car of D’Angelico guitars. The awe-inspiring archtop, created for players seeking the D’Angelico experience with a rock ’n’ roll edge, is the only D’Angelico archtop equipped with a Bigsby vibrato. Explore your creative side to conjure up everything from subtle shimmers to delirious dive bombs. The roller bridge offers stable tuning for hassle-free operation.
With its Kent Armstrong humbuckers, the EX-175 is incredibly dynamic. It responds immediately to your playing— the harder you strum, the more pop you get. Dig in hard and you’ll be rewarded with a loud throaty growl. Don’t be afraid to crank this bad boy. The EX-175 is incredibly resilient to feedback and can be pushed harder than other archtops.
Staying true to the D’Angelico legacy, the EX-175 exudes elegance. The distinctive headstock with a mother-of-pearl Excel inlay and Art Deco truss rod cover, mother-of-pearl square block inlays, carved top and back, seven-ply bound body stairstep pickguard, brushed chrome hardware, chrome Grover Super Rotomatic stairstep tuners, and ebony knobs add that timeless D’Angelico touch. A deluxe hardshell case is included.
In addition to its sexy stylings, the EX-175 offers amazing playability. Its ultra-slim taper neck makes super fast single-note runs a breeze. Whether your style encompasses blazing bebop, rockabilly romps, or countrified chords, the retro-styled EX-175 will take your playing to places you never imagined possible.
Let’s cut to the chase—with its smooth and responsive action, powerful bends, and good tension, this is an exceptional ES-345 as a player, and most of the ones we get from this era are very nice. This one has had a good refret with wide, low frets, making sure it has an even longer life of playability ahead. With its stereo output and six-way Varitone switch, this has a lot of tonal options for any setting, be it rock, jazz, or blues.
But it’s a looker too. Who can miss the “Custom Made� plate below the bridge, or the reason for the plate—the factory gold Bigsby vibrato? The cherry finish is darkened and checked, with some classic tarnish on the gold hardware as well. This one may have shown up at some of the smokier South Side-Chicago blues clubs back in the day, but it’s still raring to go .
