Italia Guitars
Oct 2009


With a definite reflection of the 'modern retro' flair and vibe of the Trev Wilkinson-designed Italia catalogue of guitars and basses, a brand new range of stylish and affordable Italia 'Retro' guitar combos will provide further thankful light relief amongst a proliferation of 'black box' designs.

Taking inspiration from some of the more colourful amplifier liveries of the 1950's and 60's, the cream and red combination colour scheme of Italia Retro amps certainly makes them stand out in style. The amps also feature grey check grille cloth and chrome plated corner protectors, and the 'chicken head' rotary controls certainly add to the retro looks.

Compact and easily carried, thanks to the large cream colour, shaped folding handle on the amp, Italia amps are perfect for anyone who needs a practice/rehearsal unit that's as attractive to look at as it it is to play through.

Using solid state circuitry, the Italia Retros are available in 10, 15 and 25 watt versions, with the 25 watt unit featuring a sweet-sounding short pan spring reverb.

All the amps are twin channel units with switchable clean and overdrive settings.
