    Modena Challenge

    MSRP $1,349.99

    Street Price $1,079.99

    The Modena Challenge is the newest addition to the Modena Series, but there are some major differences that set this apart from the rest of its family. The Challenge has an ultra-thin body design bolted to an oil-finished hard rock maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The Official Bigsby tremolo adds the perfect touch to maximize the tonal versatility of this powerhouse instrument, which are powered by three…yes three Italia Toaster Style Mini Humbucker pickups, with a 5 way position switch, master volume and tone that give you a vast range of sound possibilities. Tone alone does not make this guitar amazing. The style and comfort are something you won’t soon forget once you’ve played it.

    Modena Sitar

    MSRP $1,199.99

    Street Price $959.99

    This electric sitar is a unique instrument that utilizes the Gotoh Buzz bridge producing the sympathetic string sound of a traditional sitar. In addition to the unique sound is the mini-harp on the upper part of the body. Tuned in half-steps, this mini-harp has its own lipstick pickup and produces resonating overtones to the primary strings. In effect, the ITALIA Modena Sitar produces some of the most unique and bizarre tones to come from an electric guitar. The ITALIA Modena Sitar is loaded with three lipstick pickups (one specially designed for the mini-harp) each having its own individual Volume and Tone controls for endless variations of blending. No other instrument can reproduce what this one does. The ITALIA Modena Sitar is unique and fresh providing a different outlook on modern electric guitar.

    Standard tuning for the harp is the lowest string tuned an octave above the high E of a standard guitar tuning. The following strings are tuned in half steps from there.

    This is only a standard tuning recommendation. The beauty of the sitar is you can really get some unique and interesting sounds by altering these harp tunings. One customer suggested to use a ‘drop D’ tuning for the guitar, and tuning the sympathetic strings to a D7sus chord. D F# G A C A G F# G A C D D. But thats just the beginning! Experiment with other crazy and wild tunings to really find that unique sound to accent your song.
