ELAINE WARNER | SPECIAL TO THE SUN John D'Angelico, apprenticed at age nine to his violinmaker granduncle, opened his own instrument shop in New York City in 1932. Upon his death, it was taken over by his apprentice, James D'Aquisto who ran it until his death when it again passed to an apprentic, Paul Gudelsky., who died a year later. In over six decades of guitar making, the shop had become known for its high-quality, archtop instruments. This is a recreation of the workshop, complete with original tools and furnishings.
