It is very rare yet absolutely pleasurable to get struck by an amazing guitar design. This, however, is the precise definition of the impression made by the Picasso bass to one of my returning customers, who loved the instrument so much so that he decided to order it made into a guitar. And here she is – the Picassa, an extraordinary guitar to behold. A splendid, lush and rich instrument, complete with lively colours, classy gold hardware and amazingly smooth all-rosewood neck, she is a true eye-catcher and a joy to play as you can cover everything from punk – rock to classical music in one turn of a knob.
Now the newborn Picassa is ready to sing as a leader among her guitar sisters.
“Sing! Sing, my angel of music!” – A wise man once said.
