    I had to wait over 2 weeks my D`Angelico EXL-1 archtop guitar until
    Thomann in Germany got those themselves to be able to send my order.
    Then it was fast: They got guitars in 17th, did send my ordered guitar
    in 18th and i got it yesterday 6PM! It was quick!

    EXL-1 is a beauty. Finish is among the best i have seen, it`s very
    easy to play and tone is very clear and punchy. Frets are perfect,
    smooth ends and height is right. Something like medium or medium jumbo
    i guess. Neck is not as thin as i have read in some places, something
    like C with a tad from U shape.

    Both acoustic and electric tone is brighter than i expexted, but not
    aggressive at all. Can be the factory installed D`Addario strings is
    the cause. I won`t change to flatwounds as i has planned, but to some
    smoother sounding roundwounds, because this guitar has so good acoustic
    tone, electric tone can be good with right roundwounds too.

    After all, very good value for 700 Euros!

    Don`t worry, it sounds very good now when i have set amp volume to about half, tone to 50% and guitar volume to half and tone between 30-40%. Now my Excel has smooth and jazzy tone even with factory strings, as it should!

    Congratulations, wonderfully guitar. I went burst

    I have had mine like 18 months or so. You are dead on, the sounds and tone out of these are amazing.

    Just like a month ago, had a setup done, same strings as factory and the guitar is even better. How I don't know, but yeah....
