Are you an adventurous bassist? Do you fancy yourself an acrobat with the fingerboard? If you like to push yourself to discover just what you can get out of an instrument, then you've got to take a look at the Italia Imola 5-String Fretless Electric Bass. The unique korina wood body gives this bass an amazing look, feel and sound, while the smooth fingerboard means that you can really let loose with the most advanced fretting techniques. If you like the styling and the extended range but you're not keen on the fretless neck, you can also choose a fretted version of the Imola.
For the bassist who wants something truly special, another can't-miss instrument from Italia is the Mondial Classic Bass Guitar. Its unique acoustic-glass body gives this bass a tone and style all its own. The beefy neck-mounted humbucker is exactly the sort of pickup you'd expect to find on a bass, but Italia shakes things up a little by partnering that with a piezo under the bridge, making the sounds of this axe even more distinctive.
Italia's bass guitars look and sound amazing, but the best part might be that they manage to do it without breaking the bank. These instruments are affordable enough for a beginner, yet they deliver such great performance that you'll never be tempted to look for a replacement. No matter your level of skill and experience, Italia is a solid option for your next bass.
