Italia guitars have announced a brand new signature model for Beach Boys vocalist/guitarist Jeffery Foskett. Designed in collaboration with the longtime Beach Boy, 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 are paired with master volume, tone and blend controls, plus individual on/off switches with LED indicators. Furthermore the ‘FosQ’ enhancer switch engages 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 is a fantastic addition to the Italia lineup.
Finished in Cobalt Blue the Italia Jeffery Foskett Signature comes with a luxury padded Italia guitar bag.
