Italia Retro Guitar Amplifiers

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 on the market.

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.
