So you’ve probably already seen this crazy creation, the Ultra Guitar by Emerald guitars that Steve is currently using on tour to play The Ultra Zone. Now Emerald Guitars are going to produce a limited run of these guitars for the public to buy, although you need to be pretty serious as it is not cheap.
Emerald Guitars is pleased to announce that a limited edition run of 100 Ultra guitars are available for pre-order. Each is an exact replica of the Ultra guitar owned by Grammy Award-winning musician and composer Steve Vai, and will precisely maintain the same standard and specs as Vai’s original Ultra guitar. (For more info on the guitar, and to pre-order, visit www.emeraldguitars.com.)
Each of the limited edition Ultra guitars comes with a hand-crafted “Pod” guitar case like Vai’s, and a letter of authenticity. Price is $8450 USD, and orders can be secured with a $1000 USD deposit.
Steve Vai, on the Ultra guitar: “At first I wasn’t sure if I should plug it in and play it or crawl inside of it and fly it to Venus, so I did both… at the same time. After handling it, it was obvious that it was not just a masterpiece extravaganza of a carving frenzy, but it was also a very well crafted and playable instrument. In the years following my receiving the Ultra guitar, Alistair has continued to create unique guitars that are constructed from original designs and materials that produce stunning visual and audible heights, but mine is the only one that can fly to Venus and back without missing a beat.”
