Wirklich tolles Instrument
Opa Tom, 09.05.2020
Die legendäre Archtop-Marke D?Angelico lässt ihre Excel-Serie in Südkorea fertigen und das mit Erfolg! Verarbeitung, Bespielbarkeit (Hals wie meine ES) und vor allem auch der Sound des verbauten Seymore-Duncan Floating Pickups sind erste Liga. Das Schwingungsverhalten der Fichtendecke ist so einfach besser. Prima sind die Grover Mechaniken sowie die Ebenholz Brücke. Diese Gitarre reiht sich ohne Probleme neben meiner ES-335 (BJ 79) und meiner Tal Farlow (Bj 98) ein.
Apropos Sound: Die EXL-1 Throwback klingt keineswegs nur jazzig. Funky stuff, Blues und Jazzrock kommen gleichfalls sauber rüber. Sie passt gut zu meinem Koch Studiotone XL. Am Fender Bassman gibt es zu leicht Rückkopplungen! Sicherlich spielt auch die Erstbesaitung mit ungeschliffenen Daddarios für den vergleichsweise klaren Sound eine Rolle, mal sehen wie später die gleich mit bestellten (und für mich gewohnten) Thomastik JS112 kommen.
Sehr hilfreich fand ich die auf Youtube verfügbaren Videos zu dieser Gitarre von Rodney Jones, Mark Whitfield, Vinny Ranxiolo und Vinny Valentino. Da habe ich doch glatt einmal eine Gitarre per Bestellung gekauft, ohne Antesten im Laden. Corona macht's möglich...

Évaluation de: DAngelico Excel EXL-1 Throwback VN
Francis01, 09.08.2020
Achetée chez Thomann mi juillet 2020. Livraison en 3 jours. Double emballage en carton fort: irréprochable d'autant plus que la guitare est livrée dans sa hardcase. La guitare: Finition parfaite. Sonorité exceptionnelle (Caisse creuse sans poutre centrale, micro suspendu, potentiomètres dans le pickguard). Donc un vrai bijou. Ce qui peut encore être amélioré : Pour le Jazz des cordes à filet lisse seraient (à mon gout) préférables aux cordes d'Angelico fournies. L'action est normale pour une guitare Jazz: 0.75 mm au niveau de la 12 eme frette. J'aurais , de nouveau à mon gout, voulu la réduire encore un peu. Je verrai à l'usage si un luthier ne peut pas m'aider sur ce point.
