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!
