Default Aria’s revival of the D’Aquisto brand

Does anyone have any first hand experience with D’Aquisto’s New Yorker or Avant Garde? How do they feel, play, sound? Worth the money? I had been looking at Eastman’s 905/910CE and 805/810 CE when I read about the D’Aquisto’s. Are there other options I should look at in that same price range? TIA

Aria "revived" D'Aquisto around 2005. I don't think they are making them anymore. To my knowledge, all the Aria "D'Aquisto's" were laminate construction.

Hi!
I used to own a D'Aria Centura.
It was a good guitar with a very nice acoustic tone.
I always thought that top was solid, but I be mistaken.
Here's some videos of the guitar in action:
