Nothing much new for ages, then along comes a big smack-in-the-face range of guitars and basses by the name of Italia.

Blending the best of design with a pinch of Italian style and lashings of retro-chic, this magnificent selection of outlandish, of-the-wall, post-modern masterpieces has been a labour of love for Britain’s leading guitar designer and craftsman Trev Wilkinson.

Players of all styles will love these instruments – and those who don’t play guitar or bass will want to start learning.

Echoing one of the most collectable and rare European electric guitars, but with the sound and playability demanded by the musicians of today, the Maranello is THE guitar for you if you dare to be different! After all, individualism is what Italia guitars are all about... A classic red finish sits atop a stunning 'crushed ice' look pearloid body back and sides, neck and headstock back and front too, with a 3 + 3 kidney button Gotoh tuner layout.

And what about that individually shaped 'floating' pickguard, which carries the two Wilkinson vintage-voiced alnico V humbuckers? Plus the Volume and Tone rotaries, 3-way toggle pickup selector and neat up-angled output jack? Not to mention a 22 fret neck, block plastic fret markers, bound 12" radius rosewood fingerboard, tune-o-matic bridge and smart Italia covered stop bar tailpiece!

Created as the perfect complement to the popular line of the Mondial 6 string electric guitars, the bass version offers quite monstrous bass tones from that giganto single polepiece bass humbucker sat right at the end of the fretboard! But the Mondial bass is no 'one trick' pony, because you can also blend in additional tones from the bridge piezo pickup for some unparalleled tonal textures - or simply use the piezo on its own for that true acoustic bass sound! How many other basses can do that? And look this good while they're doing it?

Just look at what else is going on with the Mondial bass – a funky Acousti-glas moulded f-hole top is mated to a centre-jointed agathis tonewood body, with separate controls for the main neck 'bucker and the bridge-mounted piezo. And check that adjustable sliding thumb rest, too – lets you move from acoustic-toned finger plucking near the bridge through to seriously big bass tones from that monstro neck 'bucker!

12 string guitars always sound impressive – and the Italia Rimini 12 string guitars look impressive too!

Available with Wilkinson 'vintage voiced' Wilkinson mini humbucking pickups and, adding the icing on the cake for that stylish f-hole semi-solid body, just check out that amazing optional blue pearloid front finish, or the vibrant sunburst colour finishes, or the smooth black version and their beautiful figured backs and necks... these guitars are a real stairway to (rock 'n' rol) heaven!

MuiraSeries

Trev Wilkinson says about the Italia Muira: "Saying the Muira is different from other acoustic guitars would be an understatement, and Italia is NEVER understated!" And indeed, only Trev could have designed a guitar like this.

Controlled by a pair of volume knobs, the Muira's low-output magnetic single coils and onboard 3-band preamp will give you all the acoustic sounds under the sun, while a super-fast neck makes playing any musical style a breeze. Then there's the finish which, in true Italia style, is a lavish pearl and sparklefest with lashings of chrome on top.
