Italian cars emit a certain pitch, a distinct melody that cannot be replicated by other manufacturers. It is a fusion of mechanical elements combined with automotive opera that creates a unique passione for the bella macchina. And it normally has the right foot as the conductor.

But what if you want to caress the bella macchina with your fingertips and produce that soprano High C without unnecessary foreplay fumbling?

Oh, and the guitar will be given its first public playing at a special invitation-only screening of Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary at Olympic Studios on 24th June featuring a live performance by Tim Burgess and Mark Collins of The Charlatans. The guitar will then be exhibited at a series of events through the rest of 2014.
