Hanson Pickups Launches New Guitar Line
Chicago, IL (June 16, 2009) -- Hanson Pickups announces the August release of their new guitar lineup "Hanson Guitars," which includes four solidbody models: The Cigno and Cigno ST and the Firenze and Firenze ST.

The Cigno and Cigno ST are based on a set-neck triple P-90 design, and the Firenze and Firenze ST are triple mini-humbucker bolt-on neck models (complete specifications below). All Hanson designs represent Italian-style electric guitars of the late-fifties, early-sixties. 

The expanded line will be available in October 2009 with the addition of three new models: the Gatto and Gatto ST (dual-PAF set-neck models), and the Chicagoan (a semi-hollowbody model). Pricing TBA.
