Italia Guitars Maranello classic : averly's user review

5

Made in Korea under supervision wilkinson
22 frets
no vibrato
Mechanical brand trevor wilkinson same for the microphones ...
Volume and tone + a micro switch

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice as well a view that the touch! Beautiful white sparkle across the back of the guitar and the neck! the type of handle is round and semi Assé is large ...
(On mine the color that is more cream than white ...)

Access to acute bcp easier than a les paul! The cutaway is to bcp
Very good ergonomics and weight related to the craft!
neither too much nor too little!
Listed ergonomic knobs and switch mic fall naturally to hand ...
The sound of the guitar pretty glitter is simply impressive! and especially the neck pickup a pure pleasure!

SOUNDS

If the fine may prove versatile? yes and no ....
It will be very comfortable in a blues record (maranellos the blues are beasts! Is a play that Chris Rea who plays more than Maranello! He has even forgotten his strat! That is to say)
the rock 60/70, and is also very al ease in pop music and other songs like french etc ...
BUT do not expect hard rock with! or anything that requires a sharp and loud ... it will not shock!
No it is not for dallieur cella!
For the Maranello has a very warm and round, slightly soft slamming and earlier!
In fact it is my first electric which raproche of my folk's clear ... that is impressive Assé!
the first time I have connected I have dallieurs thought my delay pedal was turned on low nv!
But no, it's a very natural embedding in a little like putting a delay pedal on lv 1 or 2 ...
for the blues that is a regal and the support that is perfect ...
cella feels especially on the neck pickup ...
then exit all the hard style music, metal, trasch, and others ...

If I have to find fault I would say that the micro switch would be able to put a bit more down because it tends to inadvertently change the pickups if not careful! it is very close to the strings ...

OVERALL OPINION

Received at christmas!
what I like about her?, look! that is my guitar idol, even when Chris Rea!
on a stage that we see it!
I have the blue model ...
I like her very great possibilities in blues and blues rock
It is very complementary to my Hagstrom super swede bcp is more biting, whereas this one is very very soft ... almost a folk in the clear!
identical value for money my other favorite brand Hagstrom! very very good guitars for a very very good price!
I would do this choice without hesitate ...
And if I'm not a Hagstrom my last, I can assure you that I am not a italia not my last!
