D’Angelico may be famed for its big and boxy jazz guitars, but its new Excel Tour Collection – featuring a stripped-back aesthetic and custom Supro pickups – looks like it will have far wider appeal. 

The new Korean-built models include the single-cut Excel SS Tour, the Excel DC Tour and Excel Mini DC Tour, which have widths of 16”, 15” and 14”, respectively. However, the headline feature across all three models are the new Supro Bolt Bucker pickups. These have been developed especially for the Tour Collection in collaboration with the guitar-maker, following Supro’s acquisition by D’Angelico’s parent company, Bond Audio, back in 2020.
