A fine sounding example of an early Excel, this is a 17" body with engraved inlays and streamlined deco bound soundholes and gold plate. It has a recent lovely refinish with new pickguard, bridge and Gotoh Butterbean tuners. The original tailpiece has been replated. All work, including set-up, has been done to perfection with exquisite vintage taste. This is a sweet sounding guitar, nicely balanced with an unusually flattop-like treble.
