Leica Camera is excited to announce a new unique special edition, the Leica M Monochrom "Signature" by Andy Summers. Created in collaboration with Andy Summers, former member of the rock band The Police and one of the greatest guitarists in the world, this special edition represents a striking synergy of music and photography. Coinciding with the release of the camera set, Fender will launch a special Signature Guitar for Andy Summers.
The Leica M Monochrom "Signature" by Andy Summers stands out with its high-gloss black paint finish, contrasting silver chrome control elements, matching Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens with red engravings and classic style lens hood, the special leatherette showcasing a collage of Andy Summers's photo collection and Andy's stylized signature engraved atop the camera highlighted in red enamel paint.
Accompanying the M Monochrom (Typ 246) camera and lens set will be an Oberwerth for Leica System Case in black leather with red contrast stitching and a Fender guitar-inspired special "Signature" black leather camera strap. The Leica M Monochrom "Signature" by Andy Summers will be sold exclusively at Leica Stores and Boutiques, and limited to 50 sets worldwide.
