D'Angelico EX-SS: an elegant guitar to play Jazz and more

What I enjoyed the most

  • The sounds
  • The built quality
  • The confort of playing

What I enjoyed the least

  • Too much gold hardware!

Conclusion

For a budget of around $1,500, the EX-SS offers a very good guitar that should delight the fans of Jazz and Blues. If you dig the gold hardware and the shiny parts of the D'Angelico instruments, quite fitting with the image of the brand, you must admit that this guitar has a certain class. Put on your finest tuxedo and swing.

Until the next gear review, keep on playing your guitar!

Pierre.
