A rare 1978 D'Aquisto New Yorker, 17-inch arch top guitar with brass strings. It has a spruce top with a subtle sunburst finish, the first such finish of its kind made by D'Aquisto. Under 300 of this particular guitar were ever made, making it worth around 70 to $80,000 at current time. D'Aquisto guitars were played by musicians such as Paul Simon and Joe Pass. The owner of this guitar noted how D'Aquisto was a master at "bringing out the sound," distinguishing it from other custom made guitars.
