D'angelico / Michael Lewis Excel Deluxe Near Mint / 2000 / Guitar

Luthier Michael A. Lewis began offering handcrafted banjos and mandolins in 1981. He began making flattop and archtop guitars in 1993. In 1999, Lewis chose to focus exclusively on the carved top instruments. Up until 2011, Lewis also made authorized replicas of John D'Angelico's Excel and New Yorker Models. This Blonde Excel Deluxe from 2000 was ordered straight from the NAMM 2000 show floor by a Dutch import firm together with a Sunburst Excel Deluxe. They both have X-bracing, feature the custom addition of a Bartolini hum canceling jazz pickup and they also both ended up here at TFOA!  Features include a 17" wide body with cutaway, a carved spruce top, carved maple back and sides, multi-ply bindings on the body, pickguard, fretboard and headstock, pearl split-block fretboard inlays, maple neck with 43mm (1 11/16") nutwidth, 635mm (25") scale length, gold hardware, Grover Imperial tuners, pearl D'Angelico and Excel headstock inlay, New Yorker style aluminum trussrod cover and ebony bridge. This guitar has lots of volume, a rich sound, fantastic tonal clarity and perfect string to string balance, ideal for studio work and a joy to play. In perfect near mint/collectors condition with very little signs of use. Included is the original hardshell case.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205
