Look at my "new" Mazzi Guitar

When I was a kid, I went to a music shop with my friend Mazzi (Massimo Gianotti) to buy his first electric guitar. He ended up buying an old Italian “Melody” guitar from the early seventies/late sixties (probably a Melody M5100). After more than 25 years that guitar was almost unplayable, sounded like crap and looked awful (and someone had it repainted in blue). So, I decided to “bring it back to life”, and here’s how my new “Mazzi” guitar looks now:





It also sounds amazing (I’ll post some audio clips soon).
