Italia Maranello Classic (Black Sparkle) EFFECTIVELY NEW in Dunstable


Rare Ultra Black Sparkle. Bound carved agathis tonewood body. Made in Korea (year unknown). Bought new (ex display) in 2013 as an addition to my collection so apart from checking it out when I bought it (and again today to ensure it still works as it should!) it has lived in a gig bag and has not been played. It has never left the house so no gigging and is mint/as new.

CASH on collection from Dunstable, Beds (3 miles from junction 11 on M1) or bank transfer (the latter before despatch). Any questions or to view, ring me or message me. If you need more photos, just ask. Sensible offers given consideration.


Manufacturer's blurb:

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 black 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!
