Brand new from quirky manufacturer Italia are three new guitar and bass models.

Possibly the most tonally diverse six string ever made the new Imola Vario has some fresh, clean design changes, a redesigned body cavity for better tone as well as weight reduction, and even more tonal variation in the pickup configurations. Classic style 3-way switches split the bass and treble sides of all 3 Italia Duplex pickups (or to control the SIX mini pickups). An added 5-position rotary switch allows you to dial every combination imaginable. With a Wilkinson WV6 vibrato system and Italia locking machine heads for superb return-to-zero performance the Imola Vario is supplied with a padded gig bag and is available in Satin Yellow and Satin Purple finishes.

Meanwhile the Maranello Cavo bass features a chambered Mahogany body construction with Italia’s signature f-hole design, resulting in a stunningly classic vintage look. The Cavo’s light weight, and 30” scale length make this a very comfortable instrument. Equipped with a pair of Italia Toaster bass humbuckers with master volume, tone and blend controls the Cavo is ideal for a wide range of styles. Available in Racing Green or Trans Red finishes the Cavo comes complete with padded bag.

Finally, following on from the success of his 12 string model last year, Italia are pleased to add the new ITFJ6 Jeff Foskett Signature 6 String. Developed once again in conjunction with the longtime Beach Boys guitarist, the ITJF6 comes with three Wilkinson mini humbuckers, with a master volume, tone, blend and separate middle pickup volume controls, for a wide variety of tonal options. Finished in Pearl White with an Italia trapeze tailpiece, the ITFJ6 looks as stunning as it sounds and comes with padded bag.
