1984 Fender DAquisto Standard Archtop Black (consignment) SOLD

Here is a lovely 1984 Fender DAquisto Standard Archtop in Black.    In late 1983, in a co-operative effort with James D’Aquisto, Fender introduced the single-cutaway, fully hollow D’Aquisto Archtop as part of the Master Series.  The Fender D’Aquisto models include the Elite (with one pickup and gold hardware) and the Standard (two pickups and chrome hardware).

The Fender D’Aquisto Standard archtop model was built only as a 1984 model, and features  laminated maple construction with a bound rosewood 20-fret fingerboard, rosewood tailpiece, bound rosewood pickguard and rosewood control knobs.   The scale is 24.75 inches.   The Standard model has two humbucking pickups, and the control layout is usual for this configuration – pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.   Chrome plated, sealed Fender-branded tuners are used.

This example of the 1984 Fender DAquisto Standard Archtop – the only year this instrument was produced – is in great playing condition, and overall good condition.   It has a few small dings and marks but plays very well.  The original arch-top hard-shell case is included; this is black with an orange interior.

Serial Number: 40802500, built during 1984 at Fender’s Terada plant in Japan, which produces so many high-quality instruments.

Pricing: $1,200.00  Canadian, with original arch top hardshell case.   SOLD

Status:  SOLD
