AVIATION COLLECTION Ultra 'P-51 Mustang' (2006)
Introduced in 2004, our AVIATION COLLECTION was designed as a ‘playing tribute’ to not only some great WWII era aircraft, but also to the brave men and women past, present and future in our armed forces.
Added to our collection in 2006, the Ultra P-51 was inspired by the famous markings of the US Army-Air Force Mustang fighter aircraft.
Specs included a 25.5” scale maple neck bolted on to a mahogany Ultra body and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with ‘’D-Day stripe’ inlays and graphics (including ‘kills’)
The hardware was distressed chrome, including the TOM bridge, the dual Duncan Designed HB-102 Hums(with grill covers), pickguard and Grover tuners… to give a cool flight-worn appearance…
The Ultra P-51 also had a 6-in-line ‘Avenger’ headstock with matching graphics.
On a historical note:
After World War II and the Korean War, many Mustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing. The Mustang's reputation was such that, in the mid-1960s, Ford Motor Company's Designer John Najjar proposed a new youth-oriented coupe automobile be named after the fighter.
