A rare 1978 D'Aquisto New Yorker, 17-inch arch top guitar with brass strings. Shown here is the neck with Grover Imperial tuning keys, all metal with gold color. 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.
