    I saw this in a used guitar store near our cottage a few weeks ago. When I told my wife about it she said "why didn't you buy it?" (I love her).

    I told her that if it was still there next time we were at the cottage maybe I would.

    So when I went in next, the guy tells me it sold a few days previously. I was a bit disappointed, even though I didn't really need another guitar. And it's so bloody cool.

    Anyway the other night she says she has a surprise for me. I have no idea what it could be and a minute later she hands this to me.

    Congrats. It is a Hagstrom Copy. And I own a Italia myself. Trev Wilkerson has them made in Korea with China parts. Great quality. Fiberglass on wood or just Fiberglass. Cool retro guitars. The original is a Hagstrom. Your's is a copy.[​IMG]

    Italia guitars are entirely owned and manufactured by the Korean company Mirr Music, they also manufacture, among others, Reverend guitars....and my own 'Backlund' guitars marketed by Eastwood.

    A local guy has one of their basses. It's a cool looking and good sounding instrument.

    So what are you getting your wife?

    I owned an Italia Rimini 12 string some years ago, loved how it looked, the front, sides, and neck, entirely clad with blue 'Mother of Toilet Seat', with the back of the body showing woodgrain through a transparent blueburst.

    Like a lot of the things I shouldn't have done, I sold it.

    Hello, my name is John......and I'm an idiot.
