DуAquisto Oval Hole New Yorker Special, 1975
"This special oval hole New Yorker was built for Paul Simon and bears his name on the headstock. Aside from the oval hole, which DуAngelico suggested to produce the sweeter sound Simon was used to from his flattops, this 16"" archtop features a spruce top, maple back, and ebony fretboard. "
