D’Angelico Guitars Introduces EX-SD Bass

After introducing the EX-Bass two years ago, D’Angelico announced the solidbody EX-SD Bass at this year’s NAMM Show. The four-string bass features a chambered mahogany body topped with flame maple and a mahogany neck. Its rosewood fingerboard holds 21 frets and is adorned with mother of pearl block inlays as position markers.

Mr. Adam Aronson, Sales Operation for D’Angelico, tells me the EX-SD weighs approximately 7-8 pounds, there are no plans for a fretless version, and the cost is $1640.00.
