Made in Italy in the early or mid-seventies, this is a very high quality guitar with a single piece mahogany body carved to make it semi-hollow, a single piece mahogany carved top and a single piece mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard with a light figuring. Very unusual quadruple copper braid inlay around the side of the body. Gold hardware and 100% original. The pickups are great and give a variety of sounds from warm humbucking in the neck position to a pure rock n roll biting bridge humbucker. Playability is as good as it gets.
