Classic look and tone!
This Japanese-built D'Aquisto New Yorker is a whole lot of guitar for the money! With original pieces built by the master himself fetching tens of thousands on the vintage market, this is about as close as many of us will get to owning an archtop guitar from this historic lineage. The guitar is absolutely stunning with eye-catching appointments and exceptional attention to detail. I really love the veneer and inlay on the back of the headstock and the classic scroll inlay on the front. This piece has been upgraded with a 12-pole Kent Armstrong floating mini-humbucker which puts out a full, round, and detailed sound at just about any volume. Acoustically, this guitar has a complex and pleasing tone with plenty of projection and sustain.
