    Imola Vario

    MSRP $1,099.99

    Average Street Price $879.99

    We couldn’t leave well enough alone. The Imola Vario is a redesign of the Imola 6, but with some fresh, clean design changes, a redesigned body cavity for better tone, as well as weight reduction, and even more tonal variation in the pickup configurations…as if that were possible.

    We couldn’t help but go back to the classic style 3-way switches to split the bass and treble sides of all 3 Italia Duplex pickups (or to control the SIX mini pickups…you decide). OK. So the old Imola 6 did all that…BUT, we added a 5 position rotary switch that allows for you to dial every combination imaginable. Think about it…you can choose the 2nd position of the rotary switch, have the bass side only of the neck pickup, treble side only of the center, and then click the rotary to 4th position for bridge and center pickup for the solo, and have a completely different sound configuration for the bridge pickup! This truly is about the most tonally diverse 6 string ever made. This is tone for days. Find YOUR sound in the wide range of options available.

    The Imola Vario features Wilkinson WV6 Vintage tremolo with Italia locking machines, with a silky graphite nut to keep things perfectly in tune while getting your vibrato on. The chambered Alder body with Maple top are bolted to a rock maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, and Italia’s inverted headstock. This is NOT your grandfathers single cutaway here folks.

    Jeffrey Foskett JF12 Signature

    MSRP $1,599.99

    Average Street Price $1,279.99

    The Jeffrey Foskett Signature Series brings the 12-string back to center stage! Each year millions of people listen to Jeffrey Foskett hit the high notes on the road with The Beach Boys and rocking out those signature guitar licks! We packed a lot of features into our first ever Signature model. Its wired with a master volume and master tone, just like Jeff has all of his guitars wired. Some truly unique features that set this guitar apart are the independent on/off switches for each pickup (with LED indicators), and we replaced the traditional pickup selector switch with a ‘Blend’ control knob with center detent. This never seen before combination allows for unlimited pickup control and tonal variation allowing you to dial in the exact sound you’re looking for. The LED located under the pickups make it clear which pickup is on. The independent on/off switches allow you to dial in that perfect tone you want, but have the switches turned off until you’re ready to play. This guitars secret weapon is the FosQ enhancement circuit. The ‘Jangle’ and ‘Boost’ controls give you amazing tonal shaping and boost control to get that really shimmery classic 12 string tone that everyone is searching for.

    Jeffrey Foskett JF6 Signature

    MSRP $1,199.99

    Average Street Price $959.99

    Foskett has been playing hollow body style 6 strings for over 40 years now, and asked us if we could make one that was a little different than all of the others out there.

    This super-clean three pickup ‘Tonezilla’ gives you access to every possible pickup combination…with no selector switch. You can ‘dial in’ any combination and fine tune variation between all 3 pickups. Using the same ‘Blend Control’ knob as first seen on the JF12, you can dial in that perfect combination between neck & bridge pickups. Add in any amount of the center pickup that you desire controlled with it’s own push/pull volume control (which is slaved to the master volume when the center pickup volume control is in the ‘push’ mode, and fully independent volume control when ‘pulled’). Thats a ton of tonal versatility and control!

    Maranello Cavo Bass

    MSRP $1,199.99

    Average Street Price $959.99

    The Maranello Cavo, our newest addition to the Maranello series, is a short scale semi-hollow body 4-string bass that packs enormous punch in a very comfortable package. The Cavo features a chambered Mahogany body construction with Italia’s signature f-hole design, resulting in a stunningly classic vintage look. The Cavo’s light weight, and 30” scale length, make this a very comfortable instrument, and much easier to endure those marathon long sets or sessions without the need to visit a chiropractor.

    The Cavo has a super-tight, punchy, silky smooth tone. The Italia Toaster pickups were dialed in to deliver very tight low-mids and resonant highs, yet without sacrificing the rich juicy lows needed to hold down the rhythm. From the sound you’ll hardly believe your playing a short scale bass, only reminded of this by how comfortable it is to play.

    We have once again swapped out the standard 3 position switch for our more tonally diversified ‘blend’ control knob. The blend control knob allows you to sweep through the entire range of combinations between neck and bridge pickups. You know your both pickups on once you hit the center detent position on the blend control. Why settle for close when you can have it exactly the way you want it.
