1977 D'Aquisto Flat-Top Delux Dreadnought


This incredible Dreadnought Guitar was made in 1977 and has a 15 7/8 inch wide and 5 1/4 deep (down to 4 1/3 inches at neck end) European 'flamed' maple body with a beautiful book-matched, two-piece European 'flamed' maple back. D'Aquisto 'braced' two-piece, multi-bound European spruce top with a 4 1/3 x 3 1/4 inch, triple-bound oval sound hole. The top and back of the body have seven-ply white and black binding. One-piece mahogany neck with a very wide 'classical' nut width of just over 1 15/16 inches, a scale length of 25 1/4 inches and a wonderful medium profile. Multi-bound ebony fretboard with 22 original thin frets and small black side markers. Unique 'D'Aquisto' shaped ebony faced headstock with inlaid pearl 'scroll with "D'Aquisto" engraved in black. The headstock has five-ply white and black binding. Black-faced rear of headstock with Individual Schaller M6 machine tuning heads with hexagonal gold-plated buttons. Unique shaped ebony truss-rod cover with two screws. Bone bridge on on unique off-set rectangular shaped ebony tailpiece with the bass side larger than the treble side. Bone bridge pins with inlaid pearl circles. Jimmy D'Aquisto has signed the guitar inside the sound hole in black ink "James L. D'aquisto / 11/9/77 / # 106". There are a couple of light scratch marks on the top and a few very minor and insignificant surface marks on the edges. There is the bare minimum of playing wear to the original frets, otherwise this exceptional instrument is in near mint condition. Housed in a later (eighties) TKL seven-latch, shaped black hardshell case with burgundy plush lining (9.25).
