The Lospennato TV-Star “Steampunk” is a one-of-a-kind, boutique instrument with a decimononic flavour. The pickguard and the truss rod cover have been handmade with real, old cogs and clockwork parts: a Steampunk character for a modern instrument. Combining golden and chromed parts to accentuate its “old machinery” effect, the TV-Star is a Telly-inspired: single cut, vintage spirit, but with a more dynamic body shape. This guitar is a handmade, unique instrument.
