Morbidoni Diamond Wildcat

Diamond was an US export brand of Italian guitar company Morbidoni, one of many companies based in Castelfidardo in central Italia near the Adriatic sea, once the world capital of accordion making, that turned to guitar making in the 1960s (we heard this story already, it happened also in Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands...) 

The Wildcat model is less known and less well designed than the Ranger, but it still has big square plastic switches, and that's what we love in Italian vintage guitars!

  1. I like the way that the greenburst is echoed on the pickguard. Also, for some reason, those wonky switches appeal. I dunno why, I think I like the eccentricity of it. Great find, Bertram, thanks!
