Official bebop weapon!

22.10.2015
Finally, I have found a jazz guitar that meets my requirements. The search went on over ten years and dozens of guitars.

For Ibanez JSM 100, ES 335 Larry Carlton, L5, ES 175, Super 400, etc., I was looking for an archtop that combines the sound of the Super 400 with the playing characteristics of the JSM 100.

This is roughly equal to the quadrature of the circle and is almost physically impossible, but the guys at D'Angelico got it right.

The warmth and softness of the sound on the halftone pickup with the volume and the tone control slightly reversed is not easy to grasp. This is an even fatter tone than in my 2006 L5. Fabulous. The guitar is very light, has a 25 "-mirror and has a strings position that every rocker can only dream of, the 12 flatwoots make this possible Had it fit.

A small drawback is unfortunately also:
If you unpack the guitar, it does not have much in common with a perfectly adjusted instrument. There is absolutely nothing. The pickups are too low. The strings are too high. The neck curvature is false. The octave purity also does not fit at all. The polepieces in the pickup are adjusted. So there is still a lot of improvement possible / necessary. To this extent, in order to be able to learn the potential of the guitar, one has to plan a few hours for adjustment. It is also important to load the frets properly. These are not, as a result of Koreaproduction, polished as delicately as with other brands. But as soon as two or three weeks have passed, the sun rises. Then the guitar sounds the way it does. So it is not possible to order and test this guitar. You have to deal with it, put it in (two to three weeks) and adjust, then you get a fantastic instrument for comparatively little money.

If you can do it yourself, then you invest two to three hours and then has a real top-of-the-line guitar. If you can not adjust it yourself, you are still inexpensive with the money for setting by the expert.

I would like to point out the relationship again: the D'Angelico EX-SS takes it easy with jazz with absolutely all other guitars on this planet. In over thirty years of professional guitar playing and 73 guitars so far (and only the ones bought), I have not heard or played such a good-sounding jazz instrument.

The sound of the Halston pickup is very warm and balanced. The sounds have a decent depth, so that a lot of air also resonates in the sound.
The Stegton pickup is a nice addition to conjure up modern sounds a la Scofield or Rosenwinkel. With restrained distortion is also a few Rockblues feasible. Due to the hollow design without a glued-in center block, the distorted sound is certainly not the decisive buying criterion. But the distorted sound is too scratchy.
To this extent, the guitar is clearly the warm, clean Jazzton.

That this piece of land is built in Korea is, of course, the hammer and should give the genuine American freaks. If this guitar is still in the "natural clear" finish, I'll get a second, just to make sure that I have this neck and sound at my disposal.

I would like to thank all the Thomans for the sale of D'Angelico products. As far as I can see, the other models are probably more than quite handsome. For me the currently strongest brand on the world market.

Hail !!! D'Angelico

Absolute top guitar

20.11.2015
I bought this guitar 14 days ago and wonder today: Why not earlier? Playability, sound, haptics and looks are just the thing. I'm really excited.
I have pre-ordered the guitar at Thomann, tested on site and then bought immediately. At this point again a big thank you for the great all round service.
