The SC
The SC's origins can be found in some of the later instruments of Jimmy D'Aquisto. In an attempt to broaden the functionality of the traditionally styled archtop, D'Aquisto created instruments with larger, more unconventional soundholes resulting in an archtop voice that approached that of the flattop guitar.
