James "Jimmy" D'Aquisto apprenticed under master luthier John D'Angelico in New York City starting in 1952, and eventually came to be considered one of the greatest archtop builders of our time.

Ebony fingerboard, Schaller tuning machines. The ebony bridge, pickguard and tailpiece were handmade by Jimmy.
