Beach Boy gets Italia Signature guitar
Brand new to the quirky Italia guitars range is the Jeffery Foskett Signature model (ITJF12 £999 UK rrp).
Designed in collaboration with the longtime Beach Boys guitarist/vocalist the ITJF12 features a chambered alder body and ash back, mated to a hard rock maple set neck with 22 fret rosewood fingerboard.
A matched pair of Wilkinson WPM mini double coil pickups begin the chain of some truly novel circuitry and tonal options including master volume, tone and blend controls, plus individual on/off switches with LED indicators. Furthermore the ‘FosQ’ enhancer switch allows you to access two further controls ‘Jangle’ and ‘Boost’ for even more tonal variation.
“I’ve played thousands of shows and hundreds of guitars in search of ‘my’ sound”, says Jeffery “I wanted the jangle of McGuinn’s and the smoothness of Carl Wilson’s tones, along with a few other features I’ve always dreamed about.”
With a Wilkinson VS50K-2 bridge and a set of Italia locking machine heads completing its impressive specification, the ITJF12 has superb projection and sustain with great intonation and tuning stability.
Finished in Cobalt Blue the Italia Jeffery Foskett Signature comes with a luxury padded Italia guitar bag.
