Offered is D'Pergo Vintage Limited number 0441 was built in 2014. The specifications for this incredible piece include: a two piece body made of recovered alder and finished in authentic 1973 Corvette Blue Metallic nitrocellulose lacquer; a satin-finished neck and fingerboard made of D'Pergo's exclusive stock of quarter sawn certified primary growth recovered maple, shaped to a .963" Vintage Offset V to C shape, upgraded with Signature-grade hand-shaped medium/medium (.095" x .045") frets, a 9.5" radius fretboard and 1.65" polished bone nut; .440 style vintage steel reduced friction tremolo, with a D'Pergo tone block and saddles made from real vintage steel; D'Pergo 18:1 ratio vintage tuners; and for electronics, three Signature Limited hand wound 50's single coils with Alnico III magnets, a custom .047. cap and ultra-fast volume pot, VTT and five-way switching. This guitar has a total weight of 7.4 pounds.
The Alder and Maple composition of this guitar produce a tone that is a combination of warmth and clarity with plenty of depth to the low and middle frequencies. The pickups are hand wound low output vintage staggered with plenty of Strat-style "quack" but with the added tonal depth and complexity that D'Pergo guitars are known for.
This instrument is in near mint condition with just very light evidence of play on the pickguard and playing area, none of which can be seen except upon very close examination. The frets are spotless. It comes with its original D'Pergo/G&G hard-shell case, Certificate of Authenticity and spec sheet. Replacing this instrument as optioned today would cost in excess of $12K but you can have this near mint Vintage Limited for significantly less.
