Italia introduces Fiorano, Modulo and Imola designs
Italia Fiorano Guitar (Sunburst)
MSRP £549

Check out these three brand new models - the Fiorano, Modulo Tipo 3 and Imola 4 - from (the misleadingly-monikered) UK guitar brand Italia. As with all of its guitars the latest additions have been designed by Trev Wilkinson, the name behind Fret-King, and feature various quirks to help set them apart from the rest of the pack in a fiercely competitive price bracket.

Click through the gallery to take a look at the new models and read the press release.

Italia Fiorano (Sunburst)

PRESS RELEASE: The Italia Fiorano (£549 UK RRP) continues Trev's love affair with the P90 pickup, featuring a pair of Wilkinson W90 Dog Ears. Combining these with hollow mahogany body construction and a spruce top gives the Fiorano a great, rich tone that's full of sustain and sophistication – and is also stunningly versatile.

The set neck is maple, with a rosewood fingerboard of 22 frets, and there's lashings of chrome hardware to perfectly set off the two available finishes: Cream or Tobacco Sunburst. If early rock and roll, rock, pop, indie or jazz is your thing, you'll love the Fiorano!

Italia Imola 4 Bass (Black)
MSRP £569

PRESS RELEASE: One for bass players who think outside the box, the Imola 4 is part 60s, part 21st century. Striking to look at and ergonomic to play, it features a classic pickup layout of two Wilkinson WBJ pickups, giving you access to the most essential bass sounds around, and a little something extra thanks to the Imola's acoustic chambering to its korina body.

Available in Black and Tobacco Sunburst finishes (both £569 UK RRP), the Imola really stands out from the crowd, especially in the way its distinctive f-hole takes a bite out of the scratchplate! If you're hungry for a bass you can sink your teeth into, the Imola is certainly worth a try.
