Notes: Master luthier Masaki Nishimura has been producing a world renowned lineup of handcrafted guitars from his workshop in Shibuya, Tokyo. Rarely seen on this side of the pond, his Aruba model is a tribute to the classic working guitar designed by Jimmy D'Aquisto for the great Jim Hall. With its slimmed depth 16" body, the guitar is a model of comfort, and its lavishly flamed laminate body is admirably resistant to feedback.

This fine example is in gleaming condition, with all original hardware and true nitro finish, with no pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear. Smooth low action over fresh pro setup, easy C neck profile and a rich, warm voice with the Armstrong Handwound Alnico V PAF pickup.

A special plus, this guitar is fitted in a custom Hoffee carbon fiber case, the finest hardshell flight grade case available today and a value of over $1200. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge (.012) nickel roundwound strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.
