    Absolutely we should! But I presume it will not be that easy ;)

    Don't worry! Italians are friendly and warm (incredibly to say, but even the ones from Genova!)! Everybody is welcome!

    Not sure if I qualify as a full member but recently found out via Ancestry.com that I'm 33% Italian....Sicilian. Two-thirds Irish and 1/3 Italian. Kind of makes sense since my family comes from the west side of Chicago. The area where I was born and raised was predominantly Italian and Irish. Although there's a lot of questions that need to be answered it does account for my affinity for Italian food...and Guinness!

    Interesting that your ancestry is divided into thirds, no? I'm trying to imagine how that would work... you'd have go back to the middle ages, and even then it would only an approximation. Just musing, never mind me... :)

    Well this thread is rolling again! (What have I done?)

    "Gli italiani sono come il prezzemolo" :D

    We're a bit scattered for the jam though :(

    Hello all "Italian guitar guys and gals(?)"!
    I have never been in Italy (yet) and I'm from Finland, but I am desperately seeking parts (pick ups) to an Italian guitar. If there's anyone out there, who could help me - please contact!
    I've been searching from here, but no luck:

    Pick ups from an old Eko Manta.

    I bought such a guitar as a project and fixed it. I tested it with a small amp - everything worked. Then I put it for sale. It went really fast and when that guy came to test it with a decent amp I was amazed about the sound. I had to sell that one, but I really want those pickups to another guitar...

    I did not. Those pu's I'm looking for have been made in the 60's, so I can't think they would have them. But I can imagine, that there could be old forgotten Eko Manta -guitars in many attics and storages, or just those pickups on someones shelf. It's just hard for me to ask without the skills of Italian language.
    "Buena notta, bella donna" - that's about all I can say... o_O
