D' Aquisto New Yorker Acoustic Guitar
One of the greatest guitar luthiers in history, James L. D'Aquist o , started his career in arch-top guitar building at the age of 17 at John D'Angelico's studio.
He founded his own D'Aquist o brand after the passing of John D'Angelico and is known to have created some of the best-sounding, most sought after arch-top guitars available until his untimely death at the age of 59 in 1995.
The instruments he created in his late r years are especially desired and are highly regarded as the "Holy Grail" of arch-top guitars. They are still the inspiration for many arch-top guitar builders.
His creativity in arch-top guitar building is apparent in his design of the "Accutone" ebony bridge and his ebony tailpiece. Those innovative D'Aquisto arch-tops of the past are now revived to become part of the new history of arch-top guitars, incorporating Old World craftsmanship with 21st century technology.
New Yorker was James D'Aquisto's most popular model of the 70's and it was during this time he established his originality and innovative designs. It features the unique head shape, sound hole and use of ebony for the fingerboard, tailpiece and bridge.
The distinctive headstock inlay of the "New Yorker" is a faithful reissue of the original.
