IN MEMORY OF JAMES L. D’AQUISTO
Designed for maximum versatility and in accordance with the teachings of the late James D’Aquisto, this model attains a sonority, which has fine definition and precision while preserving its superior volume, projection and harmonic richness. The ability to modify the dimensions of the soundholes, the four position tailpiece and the removable pickguard combine to allow the artist the greatest possible flexibility and control over the extended sonic possibilities of this fine instrument.
