Never underestimate a lightweight.

The Excel SS packs a lot of punch in its 15-inch body, the smallest of all the D’Angelico archtops. Truly a versatile instrument, the Excel SS boasts a rich, full-bodied low-end when on the neck pickup, and a powerful mid-range on the bridge pickup. High-output Kent Armstrong humbuckers deliver crisp attack and balanced resonance, making the Excel SS perfect for live settings. The signature D’Angelico stairstep trapeze-style tailpiece offers style and purpose, providing comfortable string tension for bluesy bends. The Excel SS shines when kept clean or boosted with overdrive, ideal for R&B, jazz, rock, and all the nameless places in between.

Small in size, but impressive in performance!  The absolutely great D'Angelico Excel SS is a comfortable playing and wonderfull sounding archtop.  Come over to try it; sure you'll be convinced!
