Legendary archtop luthier Jimmy D'Aquisto collaborated with Fender in the mid 1980s in an effort to bring instruments of his design to a larger market. These Japanese-built 'Designed by D'Aquisto' guitars featured the builder’s contoured bridge, rosewood hardware, and unique single-point F-holes. The Standard was assembled with a laminated maple body and three-piece maple neck, dual Schaller custom-designed humbucking pickups, and a gloss sunburst finish. it's an attractive archtop with a lot of jazz tone, great looks, and a great neck.

In excellent condition and unbelievably clean for a 40 year old guitar. There is very little evidence of playwear on the finish and frets, and the guitar is 100% original. Excellent playability thanks to a recent set up from our shop. We have the instrument strung with Thomastic Jazz Swing 11-52 Flatwounds. Violin sunburst, 15-3/4" width at lower bout, single cutaway, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, tailpiece and pickguard, pearloid dot fret markers, 24-3/4" scale and 1-11/16" nut. The neck has fast feel and a round carve, with a 1st fret depth of .800” and a 9th fret depth of .850”. The pickup DC values are 16.1k and 13.5k, and the guitar weighs 7.1 lbs.

With original hard shell case
