1960s Italian Gemelli "Twins" guitar
Andrea Dellonti posted this photo on our Facebook page. It's a Gemelli from 1960s Italy, and - as our very own David from Barcelona already pointed out on Facebook - "Gemelli" is Italian for "twins". Gemelli guitars were appropriately named, being founded by twin brothers Umberto and Benito Cingolani. You don't have to look too closely at this guitar to see the twins facing one another. The symmetry in the design was supposed to appeal to left or right handed players.

More here (if you can read or translate Italian).
