Introduced in 1994, the D'Aquisto Ultra was built entirely by hand in the US Custom Shop under Jimmy's direct supervision, and was his last major project before his untimely demise in 1995. This guitar is number 31 of only 32 produced in a run spanning just eight years. The top is hand-graduated by luthier Steve Stern from extremely fine grain bookmatched quartersawn spruce, and the back, sides and neck are crafted of tiger flame maple of exceptional depth and intensity. The tapered bridge foot, deco inlay and modernistic f-holes are all D'Aquisto signature designs, as well as the curvilinear ebony tailpiece. A gold Tuneomatic bridge saddle has been added to the original ebony bridge base.
Maintained in pristine condition, the instrument shows no playwear and has all original natural blonde finish. The neck has a sleek, elegant gentle D profile, with smooth low action over a fresh high precision setup. The voice is warm and focussed, and the Armstrong floating humbucker shows it off to best advantage. We have received repeated requests over the years for this elusive creation, and are pleased to have landed this specimen in showroom condition, complete with original hardshell case with Certificate of Authenticity and original Fender Custom shop strap.
