This Charles Cilia ‘Bellaurora’ is an excellent, Australian made guitar. It is a custom, made-to-order guitar and therefore not readily available, with a very long wait list to get your hands on one. This particular guitar was ordered from Charles at the Melbourne Guitar show in 2018. 

The guitar has the distinct and iconic ‘Cilia’ look with its shimmering blue finish, paired with the glossy mahogany back; it is absolutely stunning. True to Charles Cilia’s form, the attention to detail on this guitar is second to none, displaying the elite craftsmanship of one of Australia’s best guitar makers.  

The top shelf construction converts to a guitar that plays very nicely, it feels great in the hand and the Trinity pickups really kick with plenty of versatility in tone.  

This is a one-off, made-to-order guitar in excellent shape that sounds great.

Comes in its original hardshell case.
