1989 Fender DAquisto Elite Archtop (consignment) SOLD

Comments As the last of the legendary John D’Angelico’s apprentices, James ‘Jimmy’ D’Aquisto produced some of the best, most sought after – and most expensive – archtop guitars ever made.

In a 1994 agreement with Fender, Fender built D’Aquisto Elite archtops at their Terada plant in Japan. These guitars were re-issued between 1989 and 1994. They feature maple laminate back and sides, solid spruce tops, a maple neck with ebony fingerboard and ebony fittings; and one humbucking pickup at the neck, with the metal parts gold plated.

This 1989 Fender DAquisto Elite Archtop sports the natural finish, and really shows off the flame maple laminate used on the back and sides. It’s in excellent condition with very minor wear.

Serial Number 906061, likely built during June 1989 at Fender’s Japanese facility – the Terada plant that produces so many excellent instruments.
