DуAquisto Advance, 1994
"This 18"" Advance archtop represents one of the modern style archtops that DуAquisto began building in the у80s and у90s, as he progressed beyond the traditional styling of his mentor DуAngelico. DуAquisto only made around 25 of the modern archtops (Avant Garde, Solo, and Centura models), and this is the only example of the Advance model."
