D’Angelico Excel Style B Viola with Case


Excel Style B Throwback is a slimmed down non-cutaway archtop and time machine to the Jazz Age.

Matching the new Throwback Collection scroll-style headstock, a satin-finished macassar ebony pickguard adds comfort, style, and old-school swag.

Further aiding in the “woody” tone of the archtops found in the Throwback Collection, throwback-style f-holes are more contoured and slightly wider, emanating more tone and offering greater projection.

Designed by John D’Angelico in the 1940s, the new Throwback Scroll-style headstock design offers a more minimalistic, contemporary take on the opulent D’Angelico headstock design.
